Seahawks’ Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp struggle with ongoing shoulder and ankle injuries

Rams star receiver Cooper Kupp received good news Monday after further testing of his right ankle. Kupp, who left in the second quarter and did not return Sunday, has a lateral ankle sprain and is considered day to day. “That was positive news for us,” Rams coach Sean McVay said Monday, via Stu Jackson of the team website. Kupp could play Sunday against the Cardinals. “It’s a real possibility that he would be available,” McVay said.

The Rams will monitor the functionality of Kupp’s ankle this week. Rookie receiver Puka Nacua injured his shoulder on the pass interference penalty he drew in the fourth quarter, and McVay also called him day to day. The Rams will see the return of running back Kyren Williams this week. He has not played since Week 6 when he sprained his left ankle.

“It’ll be great to be able to get him back, his productivity, his play energy, his overall presence,” McVay said. “He’s a guy that we’ve missed.” Williams has been a key player for the Rams this season, leading the team in rushing with 375 yards through six games before sustaining his injury. His return will give a boost to the Rams offense as they look to continue their winning streak against Arizona on Sunday.
