Los Angeles Rams star receiver Cooper Kupp will play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, according to Rams head coach Sean McVay.

Kupp was injured in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks. He got his ankle rolled up on by a player while he was blocking on a running play. 

The star wideout did not return to the game. 

Despite that, it looks like he'll be all systems go for Sunday's action.

Puka Nacua anytime touchdown scorer

Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua snapped a four-week scoreless streak in Week 11, finding the end zone against the Seattle Seahawks.

I love him to do the same this week with Kupp dealing with an ankle injury. In the first four weeks of the season without Kupp, Nacua had 39 catches on 52 targets, scoring once. Even with Kupp playing, Nacua is still a solid bet.

Arizona has been very beatable through the air, allowing 17 passing touchdowns this season -- the fifth most in the NFL.
