Cooper Kupp left the Los Angeles Rams’ 27-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in the fourth quarter and did not return.

How long will Cooper Kupp be absent?

According to an anonymous source with knowledge of the situation, Kupp could be out for “several weeks.”

According to The Athletic and, tests on Kupp revealed that he avoided an injury that would have kept him out indefinitely.

However, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday, Kupp suffered a high-ankle sprain, with one person saying the prognosis “doesn’t look good.”

This season, Patriots quarterback Mac Jones suffered a similar injury and missed Weeks 4-6 while recovering.

Rams’ wide receiver depth chart

Kupp leads the Rams in several receiving categories by a wide margin, including targets (98), catches (75), yards (812), and touchdown receptions (six).

Allen Robinson is the Rams’ second-leading receiver, but tight end Tyler Higbee outperforms him in several metrics.

Robinson has 29 catches for 292 yards and two touchdowns, good for third on the team (and second among receivers).

Ben Skowronek and Brandon Powell are the third and fourth receivers on the depth chart, respectively; they are the last significant contributors at the position to have played every game this season.
