The Los Angeles Rams can’t wait for Cooper Kupp to be healthy enough to return to the lineup for the 2019 season after suffering a torn ACL in 2018.
Back in 2017, the Los Angeles Rams felt confident enough in landing a steal during the NFL Draft when they selected Cooper Kupp, even if there were some concerns over the wideout playing college football at a smaller school in Eastern Washington.
Two years later, and it’s safe to say that most teams across the league wish they took a harder look at Kupp like the Rams did since he’s become quite a reliable option as the No. 3 wideout for the offense.
Unfortunately, Kupp’s sophomore campaign came to an end earlier than expected after he suffered a torn ACL in November, leaving Los Angeles in position where they were forced to rely on Josh Reynolds to help fill the void.
While Reynolds deserves credit for filling in the way he did, and coming through with a few key performances, his impact still wasn’t anywhere close to what Kupp normally brings to the table.
Would the Rams have ended up winning the Super Bowl instead of the New England Patriots if Kupp were healthy enough to play? It’s tough to make the case since Los Angeles looked horrendous on offense during that contest, but also this was another example of just how much they missed Kupp in the passing game.
With the Rams recently providing fans with a closer look at Kupp’s rehab process, it only seemed fair to look ahead about what kind of 2019 season the wideout could be in for, that is assuming his recovery continues to go well over the next few months.
If Kupp picks up right where he left off once he’s fully healthy, here are three reasons why the Rams wideout could be in for the best year of his career in 2019 while helping Los Angeles continue to be a top contender in the process.
