Cooper Kupp is expected to miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a torn ACL suffered Sunday against the Seahawks, ESPN reported, citing sources.
Kupp underwent an MRI on Monday that confirmed the severity of the injury.

The wide receiver went down on the field in pain after running a route that didn't appear to involve any contact, so owners probably saw the final diagnosis coming at that point. Reynolds now takes over as the team's WR3. In Weeks 7 and 8 when Kupp was out, Reynolds totaled four catches for 61 and two TDs on five targets. But, most of that came in Week 8 against Green Bay when he totaled a 3-42-2 line. In those same weeks, Reynolds played on 83- and 88-percent of the snaps, so he seems worth adding for teams needing help at WR. As for the future, seems like a close call for Kupp to be ready for the 2019 season.
