The Los Angeles Rams continue to make it clear that Cooper Kupp is making great progress this offseason with his recovery from a torn ACL, and appears to be on track to be ready for Week 1.
Three years ago, the Los Angeles Rams felt confident enough that Cooper Kupp would turn out to be one of the biggest steals from the draft in 2016, and that seems to be the case so far when looking at the receiver’s production over the previous two seasons.
In fact, Kupp was always viewed as a receiver who would play more like a veteran instead of a young wideout, and having the Eastern Washington product as a reliable option in the passing game has worked wonders for Jared Goff on offense.
Unfortunately, Kupp’s season was cut short last season after suffering a torn ACL in a Week 10 battle against the Seattle Seahawks, putting the Rams in a difficult position on offense moving forward.
Even if Josh Reynolds did the best he could in helping fill the void left in the passing game, Kupp is one of those players who is arguably irreplaceable, and one can only imagine how different the outcome of the Super Bowl would have been with the wideout in the lineup.
On a positive note, over the last few months, there have been numerous updates surrounding the status of Kupp during his recovery process, and every single one as of late seems to be the best news possible in regards to him being on track to be ready to go for Week 1.
When taking into consideration that it’s only June, Kupp still obviously has a long way to go since recovering from a torn ACL is never an easy task, but at least the updates that seem to come around each week always seem to be positive.
Even last week, Sean McVay couldn’t seem to hold back his excitement when discussing Kupp’s progress with the knee, and how the wideout has been shining in recent workouts to make it seem like all will be good to go come September.
After hauling in 40 catches for 566 yards with six touchdowns before going down with the injury last season, one can only imagine what kind of numbers Kupp will put up in 2019 if there are no setbacks, and he manages to stay healthy.
These next two or three months will be extremely important for Kupp when it comes to what to expect in Week 1, but if the numerous updates so far this offseason are any indication, the Rams should be in good shape.
