According to reports by ESPN, the team will be cautious about Kupp’s injury and added that he could be back "for scrimmages in a few weeks." Kupp suffered the injury while he was working out, and walked off the field with the training staff after 30 minutes of working out. Meanwhile, the Rams’ Head Coach Sean McVay, on updating about Kupp’s injury said, "It looked he came up a little bit in a red zone route and they told me he was out for practice.” 

McVay added, "Obviously, we're much better when he's here, and we hope he's going to be OK. If he's not, we'll see what happens, but the practice had to go on." Notably, Kupp suffered a high ankle sprain in the past season and had to miss eight games due to the same. Not only this, but the 30-year-old also missed eight games of his NFL season in 2018 due to a torn knee ligament. 

Speaking of his performance in the last season, he totaled 812 yards and six touchdowns on 75 catches in nine games he played the last season. In 2021, he totaled 145 catches for 1,947 yards with 16 touchdowns in 17 starts during the season. In addition to this, he was awarded with All-Pro, Pro Bowl and Offensive Player of the Year honours and finished third in MVP during the season.
