A recipient visiting a specialist to check for a hamstring injury will never be good news.
Los Angeles Rams star receiver Cooper Cup has had a setback with a hamstring injury he sustained early in training camp. He reportedly visited a specialist in Minnesota to get checked out. But so far, he wasn’t left out of the Rams’ Week 1 opener against the Seattle Seahawks.
Rams coach Sean McVay said Monday that Cobb remains in Minneapolis but did not rule Cobb out for the opener. Via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times.
McVay added that the team is focused on Cobb’s “return to performance”. via Klein. This is an indication that Cope could be out for a while until he gets back to 100%, but McVeigh didn’t make any decisions about his availability on Monday. This does not help the fantasy football designers. Cobb was a consensus first-round pick before his setback.
The Rams might be in trouble without Cobb. Their roster was already thin after a difficult rest period as they had their salary cap in the order. One reason for hope was Cobb, the MVP of the Super Bowl two seasons ago. Without him, the Rams’ best pass players are Van Jefferson and tight end Tyler Higbee.
The Seahawks are waiting to see if they have to face Cobb on Sunday. McVay hasn’t ruled out Cope being knocked out in the opening game of the season, but it seems unlikely he’ll be back right away.
