Rams lose key receiver in victory over Seattle

The Los Angeles Rams defeated the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday by a score of 36-31. Los Angeles is now 9-1 on the season.

The victory was overshadowed by wide receiver Cooper Kupp’s left knee injury.

Kupp went down on a non-contact play early in the fourth quarter. The Rams receiver missed two games in October due to injuries to his left knee.

Head coach Sean McVay said, “It’s his knee, we’ll get the MRI, but it doesn’t look good right now.”

Los Angeles fears the second-year wide receiver may have suffered a torn ACL.

Quarterback Jared Goff said, “It doesn’t look great, he’s been a valuable piece of our team and a guy we’ll miss.”

Goff threw for 318 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Rams tight ends Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee each recorded receiving touchdowns.

LA caught the attention of American actress Halle Berry early in the first quarter. Goff called out, “Halle Berry,” as he motioned for an audible.

Rams Aaron Donald also recorded a new career high 12th sack on the season.

Dante Fowler Jr., who was recently acquired via trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars, recorded a fumble and recover in the fourth quarter. Fowler Jr. helped protect the Rams lead as the score remained 29-24.
