The Los Angeles Rams have had an incredibly disappointing season following a Super Bowl title last year, sitting at 3-4 heading into Week 9. While they have struggled as a team, star wide receiver Cooper Kupp is delivering another stellar campaign.

While Kupp hasn't missed a game yet, he did suffer an ankle injury near the end of last week's contest, which put his Week 9 status in jeopardy.

The good news is, it sounds like Kupp will be on the field on Sunday after practice on Friday went well for him. Nothing is official yet, but things are looking up for Kupp.

Kupp has been basically the entire Rams passing attack this season. He has 64 catches, 686 yards and 5 touchdowns so far, and has cleared the 100-yard mark four times already. If he's out, it's hard to imagine the Rams finding a way to consistently move the ball, based on their play so far this season.

It won't be an easy matchup wither inWeek 9. Los Angeles is going up against a tough defense in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Rams are 3-point road underdogs in Week 9, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
