Post-game update: Kupp’s injury is not believed to be major and is being described as a knee contusion, per Mike Garafolo.

The Los Angeles Rams are headed to the divisional round but they suffered a late injury that we’ll need to track in the coming week. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp left Saturday’s win over the Seattle Seahawks with 2:05 to go in the fourth quarter after suffering a leg injury. It was a non-contact injury and after leaving the field he went to the locker room with a trainer.

Kupp left the game after leading LA with 78 receiving yards on four catches. This came after he missed Week 17 while on the team’s COVID-19 injured reserve list. He was activated for this week and immediately stepped in with a team-high nine targets before the injury.
