Post-post-game update: Kupp appears to have avoided a long term injury to his ankle, per Jourdan Rodrigue.
Multiple sources said that after initial testing on Cooper Kupp's ankle, he appears to have avoided a worst-case scenario with the injury. Important to remember, though, that he'll go through more testing in the coming days for a clearer picture of the situation. @TheAthletic— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) November 14, 2022
Post-game update: Kupp will need more tests, but the initial reaction from Sean McVay isn’t exactly comforting.

Said he will check with medical staff for more details.
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp was helped to the bench after sustaining an apparent leg injury in the second half of Week 10 vs. the Arizona Cardinals. Kupp was attempting to catch a pass by the sideline and appeared to injury his ankle/lower leg on the play. Check out the video below. Kupp had problems putting weight on his leg. Kupp has been deemed doubtful to return to the game with an ankle injury.

The Rams are trailing the Cardinals 17-10 in the fourth quarter. QB Matthew Stafford was ruled out due to a concussion sustained last week. As a result, John Wolford started for the Rams. Kupp has three receptions for -1 yards in the game. If you don’t have Kupp in PPR, it’s looking like a even worse week than in PPR. Overall, things aren’t good for Kupp managers.
For the rest of the game, it’s tough to expect much from Wolford and the passing game. That should mean more running plays for Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson Jr. Tyler Higbee and Allen Robinson are the leading receivers so far this afternoon. Expect some more targets to go their way. Ben Skowronek should see more snaps in the slot in place of Kupp.
