The Super Bowl-winning wide receiver will undergo ankle surgery.


Today, Wednesday, November 16, Cooper Kupp of the Los Angeles Rams will undergo ankle surgery, placing him on injured reserve for at least four games.

Kupp suffered a high ankle sprain in the Rams’ Week 10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals after trying to haul in a pass from QB John Wolford.

The recovery time that the surgery Kupp is going under can take from five to six weeks.

Head Coach Sean McVay said: “Obviously you never ever replace a player like Cooper Kupp, but we've got to figure out the best way to accentuate the skill sets of the guys that will be playing.”

When they went into Week 10, Kupp accounted for 35.7% of the Los Angeles Rams’ receptions, the highest mark by any player in the NFL.

McVay continued: “I think what we've learned more than anything, especially this year, is let's just take it a day at a time.

“Let's see how that procedure goes tomorrow when he gets that done. Let's make sure that all the things that they initially thought based on what the MRI looked like were in alignment.

“How does that surgery go? But I don't think you want to pigeonhole yourself into one approach, but you do know that the first step is the surgery and then the appropriate steps will be followed after that.”

Kupp also took to Twitter to thank his supporters: “Thanks to everyone who has reached out and sent prayers! This is unfortunately just part of the game. Appreciate having a trusted medical team around me. Gonna get this thing fixed, then get back to work to get back to work!”
