1.Cooper Kupp

According to Andrew Siciliano of DirecTV’s “NFL Sunday Ticket,” Rams head coach Sean McVay said Tuesday that he’s “hard pressed” to see Kupp (ankle) return from injured reserve before the end of the season.

It’s reasonable to expect Kupp to slow down this season, especially given that he’s now 29 years old and has missed three of the last five NFL seasons, but he’s still a lock for a significant target share in one of the league’s top offenses. He should be taken early in Round 1.

2.Kenneth Walker III

UPDATE (DEC. 24): Walker (ankle/back) is expected to play Saturday against Kansas City, according to Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic.

Walker (ankle) will not participate in Tuesday’s practice, according to Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune.

Walker missed Week 14 due to a right ankle injury, but he was able to play against the 49ers last Thursday after following an LP/FP/FP practice regimen. He played a typical 75 percent of snaps and had 16 touches for 79 yards from scrimmage, but with the Seahawks beginning Week 16 preparations on Tuesday, he’ll see no action. When it comes to Walker, Carroll has said ominously, “We’ll see,” so his status will be one to watch as Saturday’s game at Kansas City approaches.

3.Treylon Burks

UPDATE (DEC. 24): Burks (concussion) is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game against the Texans by the Titans.

According to Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official website, Treylon Burks (concussion) was listed as full-on Tuesday’s practice estimate.

Burks has missed back-to-back games since suffering a concussion in Week 13 at Philadelphia, as well as all practices for Weeks 14 and 15. Coach Mike Vrabel told Turron Davenport of earlier Tuesday that he hoped Burks would participate in the upcoming walkthrough, and the rookie wide receiver was able to handle enough reps to be considered a full participant.

4.David Njoku

UPDATE (DEC. 24): According to Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram, Njoku (knee) does not have an injury designation for Saturday’s game against the Saints after logging a full practice listing Thursday.

According to Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram, David Njoku (knee) is listed as a limited participant on Tuesday’s practice estimate.

Njoku has missed time this season due to two separate knee injuries, including one in Week 13, but he has played 96 and 94 percent of offensive snaps in the last two games, catching 10 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets.
