Don’t panic over the LA Rams news that WR Cooper Kupp is on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list. Here are 5 reasons why it will be okay.

While yesterday’s news from the LA Rams may compel you to panic and run screaming into the streets without a face mask, stop and take a deep breath.  The LA Rams are by no means out of anything. In fact, as my father used to say, it’s always darkest before the dawn. Many right now have the impression that the Rams are out of the playoff picture, have wasted a golden opportunity to return to the playoffs.

Some even want nothing to do with quarterback Jared Goff in an LA Rams uniform ever again.  It’s okay. We all handle our challenges in differing ways. Tomorrow the sun will shine once more. And no, the sky is not falling, the Rams do not ‘suck’, and the earth is not flat. Panic is contagious, and it’s spread in many ways.

Shaken, not stirred

If the gloom and doom powerless feeling is creeping up on you, you can take comfort in the knowledge that you are not alone. In fact, it’s actually a good sign that everything that makes you a human being is working just as you should be.  So you are just fine. Now, how to go about managing that dark foreboding feeling? Well, the first step is to start dialoguing about it.

Let’s begin with the scariest bit of information out there. WR Cooper Kupp has been added to the reserve/COVID-19 list

The fact is that initially, there was no reason given why Kupp has been added to the list, there are no facts to support a timeline. We do know that the Baltimore Ravens had to rest WR Dez Bryant when the Ravens faced the Dallas Cowboys.

The next day, subsequent tests were negative, indicating that Bryant was a victim of a false positive.

That’s that.  A positive test. So the min/max for Kupp is coming back in 10 days, or out until late next week.
