Even though the Los Angeles Rams opened team activities organized this week, Cooper Kupp’s injured recipient’s health was a key point of discussion.
The wideout, WHO moulding his ACL in November, same he is creating progress towards the goal of being prepared for Week one.
“I’m taking it on a daily basis,” said Kupp, via the official website of the team. “This week it’s just about attacking, attacking the day as best I can. And I’m feeling good about where I’m.”
The 25-year-old recipient remains in his rehab portion of the individual drills, as the rest of the Rams can do team drills during OTAs.
“That he is really like a kid on the sidelines who just wants to be able to pick up a ball and play,” said Kupp’s coach Sean McVay.
Last season’s injury to Kupp threw off the offense of the Rams kilter down the stretch. As the security blanket for Jared Goff would be a big boon to get the wide-out back for the start of the season. When Kupp was not on the field last season, the first-down percentage of the Rams dropped from 47% to 38%, Goff’s percentage of completion dropped from 71% to 61%, and his yards per attempt dropped from 9.3% to 7.2 per ESPN Stats & Information.
Even as the goal is Week 1 Kupp would not have put a timeline on his rehabilitation process.
“I’m not setting my goals on something like this months ahead-it’s nearly daily, weekly goals,” said Kupp. “When I get out of bed, how do I look today? How do I push myself? What are the goals that I’m going to hit today that I’m going to make sure tomorrow,All aligned with the big picture here the next day after. So it was huge for me to keep my goals kind of near-sighted versus far-sighted.”
