THOUSAND OAKS Darrell Henderson Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles receiver Cooper Kupp is out for the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee, depriving the Rams‘ offense of a major contributor heading into a showdown with Kansas City.Coach Sean McVay on Monday confirmed the ACL injury for Kupp, who led the Rams in yards receiving last season. Kupp is likely to have surgery this week.“It’s a huge loss for our football team,” McVay said. “He’s such an important part of what we do, and a great football player, great person. It’s tough, but fortunately we’ve got guys that are ready to step up.”Kupp has 40 catches for 566 yards and six touchdowns this season, providing reliable hands in the slot and a knack for big catches. The former third-round pick from Eastern Washington has been a key contributor to McVay’s high-octane passing offense in both of his NFL seasons.His absence will be felt right away by the Rams (9-1), who will be without one of Jared Goff’s most familiar targets when they face the Chiefs (9-1) in Mexico City next Monday night in one of the biggest games of the NFL’s regular season.“He’s been a valuable piece of our team, and a guy we’ll miss,” Goff said. “He’s a tough guy (with) a tough family, and I know he’ll come out stronger through it all.”Kupp was hurt on a play with minimal contact Sunday in in the fourth quarter of the Rams’ 36-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. An MRI exam confirmed a torn ligament for Kupp, who already missed two games last month with a sprained left knee after going down awkwardly on a horse-collar tackle by Darian Stewart in Denver.McVay is optimistic about the Rams’ ability to fill Kupp’s role with a mix of receivers.Robert Woods, who leads the Rams with 55 catches Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , is likely to play more frequently in the slot. Fellow starter Brandin Cooks, who leads LA with 857 yards receiving, is likely to get more balls thrown his way after catching a season-high 10 passes against the Seahawks.And second-year backup Josh Reynolds is certain to get more playing time, particularly against the Chiefs.“Josh Reynolds has definitely demonstrated he’s more than capable,” McVay said. “He is a starting-caliber player, and that’s what we’ll do moving forward.”Reynolds has just seven catches this season and just 18 receptions in his 26 career games, but the former Texas A&M star has earned the Los Angeles offense’s trust while filling in for Kupp earlier this season. At 6-foot-3, he also provides a different size matchup on the outside compared to the smaller Cooks and Woods.“I was sorry to hear about (Kupp) like everybody else,” Reynolds said. “I’m just doing my best to fill in there.”The Rams also could get receiver Pharoh Cooper back in their lineup soon. Last season’s Pro Bowl kick returner has been sidelined since the season opener with an ankle injury, but McVay indicated the Rams are likely to make a decision this week on activating Cooper from injured reserve.“He would physically be able to play right now,” McVay said. “In terms of if we decide to activate him back, those are a couple things that we have to talk through.”The Rams have been largely healthy this season, with a few glaring exceptions. Along with Kupp’s struggles and Cooper’s season-long absence, Los Angeles has been without cornerback Aqib Talib for the past seven games due to an ankle injury that required surgery.Talib said Monday that he still hopes to return when the Rams face Detroit on Dec. 2 in their first game back from their bye week.Talib also praised his replacements in the secondary and had encouraging words for fellow starter Marcus Peters Darrell Henderson Jersey Cheap , who criticized himself after last week’s loss to New Orleans.“That’s just part of playing DB,” Talib said. “I only know one DB who was like perfect all the time, and that’s Prime (Deion Sanders). You’re going to go through those stretches, but that’s why we’ve got short memories. That’s why we play the toughest position on the field.” The聽Los Angeles Rams聽have plenty of offseason work to do. Thanks to their run to the Super Bowl, they have a relatively short amount of time to do it.Sean McVay professes to love few things more than his next challenge, and the coach is already hitting the Rams’ offseason tasks with extra motivation from the humbling experience of Los Angeles’ 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Atlanta.“If you can’t handle getting gut-punched and responding, this business probably isn’t for you,” a typically energized McVay said Tuesday at the Rams’ training complex. “That’s the only way that I know how to respond as a coach. I know our coaching staff feels that way. I know our players feel that way, and that’s what’s powerful. … If things are always easy, you never get a chance to get tested and find out.”McVay said he isn’t ready for a vacation, and he already has a lengthy to-do list.The Rams must replace quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor, who took over as head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday. McVay is heading to the NFL scouting combine in three weeks, and he will play a role in general manager Les Snead’s numerous roster decisions to be made within the compressed timeframe of evaluation before free agency opens next month.“When you do go this late into the season, which is certainly a blessing Darrell Henderson Jersey Womens , we’re really far behind with a lot of the things that typically take place,” McVay said.The NFC champions were mostly upbeat while they cleaned out their lockers Tuesday, but the Super Bowl defeat will take weeks to fade.Andrew Whitworth聽is contemplating retirement, yet the left tackle was in the Rams’ training complex working out on a bike within hours after the team returned home.聽Jared Goff聽had already watched film of the Super Bowl, taking a close look at his offense’s numerous failings.“It definitely stings,” said Goff, who will have his fourth position coach in four seasons. “It’s hard. You can’t ever really get over it, maybe. It’ll be tough, but it’ll be definitely something that will motivate us, and something that we’ll use. It’s hard saying this when we know, had we won, right now we would probably be in the parade, and how fun that would be, and how many different things go along with winning the Super Bowl. It’s hard to put that in perspective Darrell Henderson white jersey , really, but there was a lot of good things that came out of this season.”With McVay and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips still leading a roster stacked with elite talent, the Rams appear to have a foundation for a prolonged stretch of championship contention. Veterans of the Rams’ bad old days don’t take this success for granted, even if the ending currently stings.“This season is a truly great accomplishment by this team,” left guard聽Rodger Saffold聽said. “Sean McVay did an unbelievable job being able to turn this team around from a 4-12 team to a 13-3 team with a chance to win the Super Bowl. You can’t ask for anything better than that. It hurts right now, but these guys are resilient. These guys show great poise. I expect everybody to come back and have another victorious season, whether it’s with me or without me.”With that final phrase, Saffold underlined the uncertain nature of any NFL offseason. The stalwart offensive lineman is among several Rams whose futures are undecided.Defensive tackle聽Ndamukong Suh, edge rusher Dante Fowler and safety聽Lamarcus Joyner聽all were not available Tuesday to discuss their futures as unrestricted free agents. Veterans with hefty salary cap hits in the upcoming season include defensive tackle聽Michael Brockers, linebacker聽Mark Barron聽and cornerback聽Marcus Peters.Suh’s $14 million contract is up, and the 32-year-old veteran gets to choose his career’s direction again after he gambled on the Rams’ prospects for providing his first career playoff success.聽Aaron Donald聽wants Suh back next to him, but while Suh appeared to thoroughly enjoy playing in LA, he probably could make bigger money elsewhere.Fowler improved his stock with solid play after his midseason arrival from Jacksonville. He wants to stay, but could be targeted with multiyear offers due to the valuable nature of his position.Joyner played this season on the franchise tag Darrell Henderson Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , and the Rams’ hesitance to give him a top-dollar, multiyear deal could be foreshadowing.Cornerback聽Sam Shields聽played in every game after missing the past two seasons while recovering from repeated concussions. Shields said he “most definitely” wants to play football again next season.“I beat all odds, and I feel like myself again,” Shields said.Running back聽C.J. Anderson聽provided an enormous late-season boost, and the Rams could be interested in keeping him longer than five games. Backup running back聽Malcolm Brown, whose injury led to Anderson’s arrival, is also a free agent.“One thing you can say about this team is they’ll be back,” Anderson said. “McVay and some of the key players have the talent to get them over the hump.”
