The Los Angeles Rams had to head into the 2023 NFL season without arguably their best offensive weapon, with superstar wide receiver Cooper Kupp dealing with a hamstring injury that resulted in him being placed on injured reserve, meaning he’d miss at least the first four games of the season.
Unfortunately for Los Angeles, the Rams have lost two of the team’s first three games, with Sean McVay and company falling to the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals in consecutive weeks after starting the season with a win over the Seattle Seahawks.
In Week 4, the Rams will try to shoulder the load again without their superstar wideout downfield as Los Angeles will hit the road to face Anthony Richardson and the Indianapolis Colts.
After taking on the Colts this weekend on the road, Kupp appears to be on pace to return to the gridiron for Week 5 against the defending NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles, according to McVay via Dov Kleiman.
Update: #Rams coach Sean McVay says the team is hopeful for WR Cooper Kupp to return on Week 5.

If Kupp is able to make it back in time for the showdown with the Eagles, it will be ideal timing as they’ll need him against arguably one of the best teams in the NFC.
In the meantime, the Rams have gotten a lot of production out of rookie wide receiver Puka Nacua, who has yet to reach the end zone in three games but has put up big numbers for a first-year player.
Nacua has caught 30 passes for 338 yards in the first three weeks of the season.
