The Los Angeles Rams got some seriously good news with receivers Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks expecting to be available for Week 6 against the Denver Broncos.
The Los Angeles Rams caught a break as both Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks expect to be available for Week 6 at the Denver Broncos, meaning quarterback Jared Goff should have his full complement of receivers on Sunday afternoon.
Both Kupp and Cooks sustained concussions in the Rams 33-31 win against their NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks.
This may be some of the best news McVay and Goff could have received. Without having either or both players, the best receivers corps in the National Football League would have been significantly less in the high scoring LA scoring attack.
With a full roster of offensive front line weapons, the Rams will have a counter to what is expected to be a cold and snowy Week 6 game in Denver. While the conditions will be a challenge for both teams, Goff having the first team around him is significant.
That said, it seems logical that Los Angeles will offer a healthy dose of running back Todd Gurley. Gurley, who has three touchdowns in the Rams win last Sunday in Seattle, could be a prominent feature if the weather is any sort of detriment to the passing game, though it is worth noting wind should not be a factor in the Denver cold.
At 5-0, a Los Angeles win over the Broncos would also have them undefeated against the AFC West with a Week 11 showdown looming with the also undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.
Having both Kupp and Cooks available keeps the Rams injury list still relatively manageable, especially with kicker Greg Zuerlein, another steady scoring option still out of the LA lineup.
