Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay announced Tuesday that wide receiver Cooper Kupp will undergo surgery on his injured right ankle and is expected to miss at least four weeks, and will be placed on injured reserve. McVay told reporters that Kupp will undergo surgery on Wednesday in Los Angeles for his high-ankle sprain.
Kupp sustained the ankle injury in the fourth quarter of the Rams’ 27-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in Inglewood, Calif. The wide leads the Rams with 75 catches for 812 yards and six scores in nine games this season. Last season, Krupp led the NFL in catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdown.
McVay also said at the press conference that right guard Chandler Brewer sustained a knee injury Sunday and underwent surgery Tuesday; he is expected to be out for up to six weeks. In addition, McVay shared that left tackle Alaric Jackson is out for the season due to blood clots.
The Rams (3-6) will face the New Orleans Saints (3-7) at 1 p.m. EST Sunday in New Orleans.
