A new report claims Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp is more explosive following last year’s torn ACL injury.
Without question, the loss of Cooper Kupp to a torn ACL in the middle of last season was a crushing blow for the Los Angeles Rams on offense since the former Eastern Washington star had quickly become a reliable target for Jared Goff on offense.
Before the injury took place in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks, Kupp was putting together stellar numbers for the Rams by catching 40 passes for 566 yards to go along with six touchdowns.
When taking into consideration that Kupp was able to put up these numbers while playing alongside a dynamic duo in Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods, it’s amazing to think about how much of a steal Los Angeles got back in the draft in 2017.
Never in a million years did anyone think that Kupp of all players would become such a reliable wideout in the NFL after playing at a smaller school during his college years, but here is entering year three looking to bounce back stronger than ever.
Recovering from a torn ACL is never easy to accomplish, no matter who the player may be.
But when hearing how most of the updates from recovery over the last few months have been nothing but positive, the Rams have every reason in the world to be thrilled over what the 2019 season could have in store for Kupp.
Even though Kupp has yet to see any action in preseason since the last thing Los Angeles wants to do is put their beloved wideout risk for a setback, the good news is Jay Glazer just gave fans another reason to be excited for about his official return, whenever that may be.
Just the thought of a player like Kupp coming back stronger after this serious of an injury will put a smile on the face of any Rams fan since it’s tough not to wonder what could have been in the Super Bowl this past February if he were healthy.
Kupp was already showing signs of returning to his normal ways on offense once healthy, but this latest report from Glazer just took the excitement to new levels since it would make a huge difference in the passing game.
The main focus at the moment for the Rams is preparing for Saturday’s preseason game against the Denver Broncos, but it never hurts to hear positive news like this about one of the most underrated players the league has in Kupp.
