Rams' Cooper Kupp having ankle surgery, going on IR

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp is scheduled to undergo ankle surgery Wednesday and he will be placed on injured reserve.

What It Means:

Kupp will miss a minimum four games and the Rams may decide to hold him out for the rest of the season if they completely fall out of the playoff chase. Allen Robinson and Tyler Higbee will likely see the largest increase in targets, but there will also be more opportunities for Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek, and the Rams' backfield.

Kupp has 75 catches for 812 yards and 6 touchdowns on 98 targets in nine games this season. He has commanded 31.0% of the Rams' targets (fourth-most in the NFL) and 34.4% of the team's air yards. numberFire's models project Higbee for 7.4 targets and Robinson for 6.7 targets in Week 11 versus the New Orleans Saints.
