Kupp will be having tightrope surgery on Wednesday and the All-Pro WR will be placed on injured reserve, holding him out for at least four games, McVay added according to the story. While it's possible Kupp could return to this season, according to several other sources, with the Rams season fading fast there may be no reason to do that. It's a big loss for fantasy owners who were still getting fantasy production despite the Rams struggles on offense. TE Higbee could see a nice bump in production while at WR, Robinson, Jefferson and Skowronek could also see increases. It's a big hit for the already-struggling QB Matthew Stafford.
Rams HC Sean McVay told reporters that the only injury status that concerns him heading into Super Bowl week is that of TE Tyler Higbee (MCL). RB Cam Akers has not practiced this week, but it was planned.
If Higbee does not play, Kendall Blanton becomes the salary relief play on the Rams side for DFS. It is also somewhat reassuring to see McVay open and honest about injuries heading into the season finale.
