Tuesday Update: Kupp is having surgery on his ankle and will be heading to IR. This means that he is out at least the next four weeks for the Rams and it could be more.

Kupp will go on Injured Reserve.
Monday update: Cooper Kupp managed to not fracture his ankle, but it’s still not looking good for the dynamic Rams receiver. He reportedly suffered a high-ankle fracture, per Adam Schefter. Schefter also tweets that a source familiar with the prognosis said ‘it doesn’t sound good.” I think we can expect Kupp out at least a month and in his return, he might not be 100%.
The Los Angeles Rams will likely be without their star wide receiver Cooper Kupp this week after he suffered an ankle injury in Week 10. Kupp was able to avoid a major injury like a break, but his ankle is injured and he will likely miss some time, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
It’s not a big leap to think that Kupp may have a high-ankle sprain, which we know usually keeps a player out around four games. Kupp’s ability and status in that Ram’s offense is right up there with Matthew Stafford and we saw what happened with him out last week.
Fantasy football implications for Week 11
Ben Skowronek and Van Jefferson saw the biggest boosts in snaps with Kupp out, with Skrowronek leading the team with seven targets. Unfortunately he only caught two for 14 yards. Jefferson only had three targets, but he did manage a touchdown. The fact that John Wolford was the QB also skews things, as Stafford should be back this week.
