Rams WR Cooper Kupp inactive vs. Packers
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has been ruled inactive for Saturday’s NFC divisional-round playoff game against the host Green Bay Packers.
Kupp, 27, initially was listed as questionable to play after missing practice throughout the week for the sixth-seeded Rams.
Kupp caught four passes for 78 yards in Los Angeles’ 30-20 victory over the Seattle Seahawks last Saturday before leaving in the fourth quarter with a knee contusion.
Kupp led the team in catches (92) and receiving yards (974) in 15 games this season. His three touchdown grabs trailed Robert Woods (six) for the team lead.
Josh Reynolds, who had 52 catches for 618 yards and two touchdowns this season, likely will see more snaps with Kupp sidelined.
The Rams also ruled the following players as inactive for Saturday’s game: starting left guard David Edwards and fellow offensive lineman Brian Allen, quarterback John Wolford, linebacker Terrell Lewis as well as wide receiver Trishton Jackson.
The top-seeded Packers’ inactives list is as follows: quarterback Jordan Love, cornerbacks Ka’dar Hollman and Josh Jackson, linebacker Jonathan Garvin, tight end Jace Sternberger and defensive lineman Kingsley Keke.
