| Puka Nacua Questionable, but expected to play|
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 15, 2:31 pm
|Rookie WR Puka Nacua (oblique) will be listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, but Sean McVay said the Rams are expecting him to be ready to go. (Sarah Bishop on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Rams haven't listed their final injury report yet, so this is a good sign that Nacua is likely to be active and play this week in a tough matchup against the 49ers. Nacua tied Tyreek Hill for the most targets (15) by a wide receiver in Week 1 and was a hot option on the waiver wire.
| Rams place Cooper Kupp on IR, out four games|

|Source: The #Rams are placing star WR Cooper Kupp on Injured Reserve to give him time for his hamstring to heal. Not a surprise, as coach Sean McVay acknowledged this was a possibility this week. He’s out four games. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Kupp aggravated his hamstring injury last week and has been traveling across the country looking for answers. Without Kupp, the Rams are lacking stable receiving talent at wideout with Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell and rookie Puka Nacua expected to be the top three options against the Seahawks in Week 1.
| Cooper Kupp out for Week 1|
Hamstring injury is still cause for concern
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 6, 4:22 pm
|Cooper Kupp will be out on Sunday, per Sean McVay. "Not much more information...just dealing with some soft tissue stuff." While McVay did not clarify the nature of the specialist Cooper Kupp saw in Minnesota, he said team is "opening every avenue" to understand whether hamstring feeling related to soft-tissue injury or even possible nerve issue. "There's just a lot of gray behind this." (Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We didn't expect Kupp to play Week 1 but this is starting to feel like an issue that may linger for some time. McVay didn't rule out Kupp going on Injured Reserve. The way it stands now, Van Jefferson, Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell are the top three widouts for Matthew Stafford. You can bet tight end Tyler Higbee will be heavily involved as well, with Kupp sidelined.
