As Cooper Kupp continues to recover from his torn ACL injury suffered last season, the Los Angeles Rams seem confident in their wideout being ready for Week 1 in September.
From Todd Gurley‘s knee to how the defense will look without certain players like Ndamukong Suh and Lamarcus Joyner no longer around, there have been plenty of questions surrounding the Los Angeles Rams with OTAs getting underway this week.
One of those questions happens to be the status of Cooper Kupp with the wide receiver continuing to recover from a torn ACL suffered against the Seattle Seahawks last season during Week 10, leaving Jared Goff without one of his favorite targets for the rest of the year.
Two years ago, Los Angeles felt confident enough in earning a steal with the former Eastern Washington star, and it turns out that was exactly the case with Kupp when looking at the impact he’s made since coming on board.
Watching Kupp’s sophomore campaign come to an end earlier than expected was a crushing blow for the Rams since the wideout was on pace to set numerous career highs, but at least the sky should be the limit in 2019.
Recovering from a torn ACL is never easy for any athlete, no matter what the sport it.
But with the way Kupp has looked over the last few months during his rehab along with Sean McVay continuing to seem confident that Kupp will be ready to go for Week 1 in September, this is all the Rams could ask for at this point in the offseason.
A healthy Kupp on top of two other reliable options in Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods arguably gives Los Angeles one of the top receiving trios in the NFL that is only going to continue to get better with experience.
Even if Kupp needs a little extra time at the beginning of the regular season to adjust to playing again, it will all be worth it in the long run for the Rams.
Losing a key player on offense like Kupp in the middle of last season when Los Angeles was working hard to make sure they finished near the top of the NFC was absolutely devastating to deal with at the time, but at least his continued progress gives hope.
Assuming all continues to go well throughout the rest of OTAs, and the offseason for Kupp, the Rams should see their beloved No. 3 wideout back to his normal ways in no time.
