Brandin Cooks injury status update

Cooks has been ruled OUT with a concussion and will not return to Week 8 vs. the Cincinnati Bengals. Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, and tight end Gerald Everett will be plenty busy. The Rams have a bye after this game, so Cooks has extra time to recover from the concussion.


The Los Angeles Rams have suffered an early injury to their skill position players in Week 8. Wide receiver Brandin Cooks left their London matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals due to a head injury. He is being checked for a concussion and is questionable to return, per the Rams.

Cooks was targeted once before leaving with the injury. Cooper Kupp currently leads the team with two receptions for 46 yards. Robert Woods has one catch for 31 yards and Tyler Higbee has one catch for eight yards. They moved into the red zone, but had to settle for a field goal to take a 3-0 first quarter lead.
