The injury was a non-contact incident during the fourth quarter on Sunday at home, as the receiver did not return after exiting the contest. Kupp has been a major part of the Rams' offense in both of his NFL, which included him catching 62 passes for 892 yards and five touchdowns a season ago. This year, Kupp has continued to be one of Goff's top targets, recording 40 catches for 566 yards and six touchdowns, and was on pace to crush his career-best numbers early on.
The Rams have to roll with the next-man-up mentality, with Robert Woods expected to step up with Brandin Cooks as the top targets, while Josh Reynolds will return to the starting lineup. Reynolds started in both games that Kupp missed earlier this year. He also stepped in on Sunday, as well as in Week 5 when Kupp was placed in concussion protocol at halftime.
This was not the week for the Rams to lose an offensive playmaker, as they get ready for a showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football in Mexico City.
