"Most likely he probably will miss this game," McVay said Monday. "And then dependent on how he responds it will just kind of be on a week-to-week basis."
Kupp was carted off the field in the first half of the Rams' victory over the Denver Broncos after safety Darian Stewart brought him down with a horse-collar tackle. McVay said he initially thought the injury appeared as though it could have been season-ending. After evaluation, Kupp started the second half but played only one series after the training staff determined it was in his best interest to sit out, the story went on to say.
As Adam Schefter reported earlier, Breida, Kittle and Garcon were expected to play against the Packers on Monday night, and now it's official. It's a bit of a surprise for Breida, especially, who seemed to be in doubt. This brings down the value of Morris.
As reported earlier, Allison and Cobb won't play against the 49ers meaning Valdes-Scantling becomes an interesting play for those in need. St. Brown could also be in the mix.
The team calls it a week-to-week injury with Enunwa’s pain tolerance factoring into his recovery time, but high-ankle sprains generally require three to four weeks.
Kearse put up a line of 9-94 last week and even Pryor went for 5-57-1 against the Colts, both, along with Anderson should see more targets. Enunwa, who missed all of last season with a neck injury, leads the team in targets (48), receptions (22) and receiving yards (287) through six weeks.
49ers' RB Matt Breida (shoulder, ankle), WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee) and TE George Kittle (knee) -- all listed as questionable for tonight's game in Green Bay against the Packers -- all are expected to play, per source.

Breida is perhaps the biggest surprise of the group. We had a report earlier today that he was really pushing to play tonight and it seems like he's going to get his wish. An active Breida would hurt the fantasy value of Morris.
If Kupp misses time, it would mean more targets for Cooks and Woods. MCL sprains can mean missing multiple weeks, but that's certainly doesn't seem official yet based on the tweet. However, he seems unlikely for Week 7, which is against the 49ers.

And here we go again. The timing to show up this week made a lot of sense with the team's bye week, giving Bell extra time to get up to speed - if he even remained with the team. But for now, Bell remains out. It's possible he still actually shows up this week.
Streater, signed after the Browns traded Josh Gordon, was injured early in the first quarter covering a punt. He had seen an increase in snaps and was set to become more of a focal point of the offense as injuries piled up at wide receiver. He did not record a catch this season. Team doctors expect a full recovery and the injury does not require surgery.
Carr took six sacks and 10 hits in the 27-3 loss to the Seahawks. He begged to return to the game if Oakland got the ball back, but the Raiders didn’t see a reason to subject their quarterback to more punishment and never got another offensive chance anyway. Carr is expected to start Week 8 after a Week 7 bye.
McDermott described Allen’s outlook as “week to week.”
HC Sean McDermott said "we'll see" and he'll know more Tuesday as far as whether or not Allen can play in Week 7. Peterman may not be a lock to start if Allen can't go, as the team signed the veteran Anderson last week.
Keim said we'll have to see what Thompson's workload is early in the week to determine his chances for Week 7. After a hot start, Thompson has struggled over the past few weeks, including missing Week 6.
The Falcons play on Monday night in Week 7 so the good news is owners again have plenty of time to prepare. Coleman and Smith will again take over the workload. As for kicker, reports say Tavecchio could see the kicking duties.

Both are dealing with hamstring issues. The Packers may be sitting them due to their Week 7 bye, with the hope they can get by this week and both players will be back and ready to go for Week 8. Valdes-Scantling makes for a nice option for owners counting on Cobb or Allison tonight. Things will be official around 7 p.m. tonight when the inactives are announced.
Looks like MRI on rookie Calvin Ridley's injured left ankle came back pretty clean. Believed to be just a bone bruise, according to source.
Twitter reports said Ridley was trying to run and cut on the sideline, so the injury didn't appear to be serious, however, Ridley never came back. As the rest of the tweet said, we'll see how Ridley responds to rehab. The Falcons playing the Giants next Monday night before the Falcons bye in Week 8. The Falcons could opt to rest him vs. Giants and let him have extra time to recover during bye week. With the game Monday night, Ridley may be a game-time call, so owners should have a backup plan.
Ingram’s return for last Monday’s game against Washington was expected to cut into Kamara’s usage, but the size of the bite was bigger than many would have predicted. Ingram had 18 touches, which was twice as many as Kamara had in the 43-19 win.
In a post-bye conference call on Monday morning, head coach Sean Payton said he expected more balance in the future and that the way the Saints scored changed the plans their last time out. Payton said Kamara's lack of touches was a byproduct of 60 and 40 yard passing TDs. Hopefully this will ease the pain of Kamara owners still in shock from Week 5.
