Rams to sign WR Nick Williams

The Rams have their replacement wideout.

With Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp out injured with an MCL sprain, the Rams have moved to fill in the back of the wide receiver depth chart by signing WR Nick Williams.

With Cooper Kupp expected to miss at least one game, the #Rams are signing WR Nick Williams, who was with the #Titans recently, source says. Sean McVay said yesterday the team was looking to bring in a WR he knows. He was referring to Williams, a former #Redskins undrafted FA.

Report: Cooper Kupp could miss some time

Sunday afternoon, Los Angeles Rams wideout Cooper Kupp would leave on a cart in the first half. This is why. On Tuesday, some decent news would arrive. Kupp’s injury isn’t as serious as this tackle makes it looks. However, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, he’s potentially set to miss a couple of weeks. Make no mistake about it — losing Kupp for any period of time would be a blow to the Rams. He ranks second on the team in targets (42) and receptions (30). He does, however, lead...

Rams-Broncos: what we learned

It wasn’t pretty, but the unbeaten Rams escape what could have been a trap game.

The defense is still pretty good, mostly. This is 2018, and other than maybe the Baltimore Ravens, every defense is going to get caught with their pants down occasionally, or often. That includes all the “powerhouses” from the Jacksonville Jaguars, to the Minnesota Vikings, to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Rams defense is currently ranked 7th in the league in points allowed. We haven’t seen an all...

Cooper Kupp could reportedly miss time with sprained MCL

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp left Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos after suffering what appeared to be a serious injury, but he was surprisingly able to return despite being carted off. However, the possibility still exists that he could miss some time. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kupp suffered a sprained MCL, and the Rams are bracing for the possibility that they could be without him in Week 7. Kupp’s leg bent awkwardly underneath him when he was dragged...

Cooper Kupp reportedly 'could miss some time' with sprained MCL

Los Angeles Rams star receiver Cooper Kupp went down hard with a knee injury during Sunday’s win over the Denver Broncos, and he might miss a bit of time because of it. Kupp was dragged down from behind on an illegal horse-collar tackle, which caused his knee to get torqued underneath him as he came down awkwardly on his back. After being evaluated, Kupp reportedly “could miss some time” with the injury, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Kupp is one of the league’s best receivers this...

Rams-Broncos: Five Broncos revisited

The Rams left the Mile High City with a narrow victory as the Broncos played very well.

The Los Angeles Rams overcame a myriad of injuries throughout the game to defeat the Denver Broncos, 23-20. Many Rams players missed some time across key positions as LT Andrew Whitworth, LG Rodger Saffold, DL Michael Brockers, EDGE Matt Longacre and WR Cooper Kupp all missed some plays due to injury.

Overall, the Rams were still able to grind it out lead by RB Todd Gurley’s 200 yard rushing game. The...

Rams-Broncos: Game balls

Denver has been Gurleyed, Marcus Peters is back, and so is the run defense.

RB Todd Gurley

Usually it’s by air, but on frigid Fall days sometimes victory arrives by ground, on a dreadlocked chariot named Todd Gurley. On a day where many fans wondered if their MVP candidate was perhaps being underutilized at times, Gurley ended up busting his way to 208 yards anyway, and averaging 7.4 yards per carry in the process.

Whenever the Rams offense went to Gurley on Sunday, he delivered; whether...

Rams-Broncos: Best/worst overreactions

Coach Sean McVay was too pass happy when Todd Gurley was dominating and the refs made the game way closer than it had to be. Which of these overreactions do you agree with?

The Los Angeles Rams remain undefeated after a hard-fought battle on the road against the Denver Broncos in Week 6, winning 23-20. It was an ugly game, sure, but it also revealed a lot of overreactions from fans.
