Injury Report: Cooper Returning to Practice This Week

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — With Monday Night Football on the horizon for Week 11, the Rams are officially beginning their practice week on Thursday.

As usual, however, the Rams held only a walk-thru for what would normally be a Wednesday in the practice week.

Still, this week will mark the return of wide receiver/All-Pro returner Pharoh Cooper to the practice field for the first time since he injured his ankle in Week 1. Cooper has since been on injured reserve, but was designated to return on Tuesday.

“[L]ooking forward to getting Pharoh Cooper back out there, seeing how physically ready he is to go and if that affects whether he’s ready to go on gameday or not,” McVay said. “But for the most part, we’re very healthy right now. And that’s a credit to [head trainer] Reggie [Scott] and his staff.”

It’s true, the Rams had three players appear on their Thursday injury report, but only one with a true injury — wide receiver Cooper Kupp. McVay relayed on Monday that Kupp will be out for the season with an ACL tear.

Because he has only returned to practice and is not technically a part of the 53-man roster quite yet, Cooper does not appear on the report.

On the other side, quarterback Patrick Mahomes (foot) appeared on the injury report, but he was still a full participant in practice — indicating that the injury isn't too serious.

Below is the full injury report for both teams. Thursday is an estimate for the Rams, as the club held only a walk-thru.
