s Rams on Thursday Dante Fowler Jersey , less than three weeks after the receiver injured his knee.While Kupp is still uncertain whether he'll play Sunday, the second-year pro is grateful to be anywhere near the field this quickly, since he also incurred a concussion one week before he was carted off the turf in Denver with that knee injury."It could have been worse," Kupp said. "Guys in this league go through a lot worse. It's football. You know these things are going to happen. At some point, everyone goes through some kind of injury if you play this game long enough. Hopefully you'll just move through this thing and work through it and get back out there playing the game I love."Kupp hopes to be in uniform when the Rams (8-0) visit the New Orleans Saints (6-1) in a tantalizing midseason NFC showdown, and coach Sean McVay expected to have LA's full complement of receivers at Jared Goff's disposal in what could be a high-scoring showdown with Drew Brees and coach Sean Payton.Kupp was hurt by a horse-collar tackle from the Broncos' Darian Stewart. One week earlier, he left a game in Seattle after taking a head hit.The dual experiences were a challenge for a receiver who never missed significant playing time in college at Eastern Washington or during his outstanding rookie season, when he led Los Angeles with 869 yards receiving and formed a tight bond with Goff."The first thing that goes through my head as soon as it happens is, 'I'm letting these guys down by not being able to be out there and compete,'" Kupp said. "You put so much time and effort into getting your body ready to play, and then when you're not able to because your body is not allowing you to, you feel like, 'What else could I have done to prevent this from happening?'"A receiver can't do much about a horse-collar tackle from behind, and the injury was alarming to his teammates."I think the knee one was definitely scary to see C.J. Anderson Jersey ," Goff said. "You see those happen all the time, and usually they're not very good. Whenever someone gets carted off like that, usually it doesn't end up very good. I think he's recovered really quickly."Kupp had 30 catches for 438 yards and five touchdowns in the Rams' first five games this season. During his absence from most of the past three games, Los Angeles relied on second-year pro Josh Reynolds to fill Kupp's usual spot in the Rams' wideout trio of Robert Woods, Brandin Cooks and Kupp.Reynolds had only seven catches in the last four games, but two went for touchdowns in last week's 29-27 win over Green Bay. McVay loves to use his top three receivers in multiple roles with minimal substitutions, so Reynolds' ability to fill in for Kupp was vital."It's a great group of three," McVay said. "But I think what's been great, if you're going to try to spin a positive on Cooper being out, is it's given us a chance to see what we believed in Josh Reynolds, and that he's a starting-caliber receiver, certainly isn't too big for him."The Rams' passing balance has been a major asset in their unbeaten start. Woods (672 yards receiving) and Cooks (643 yards receiving) are both on pace for 1,000-yard seasons, while running back Todd Gurley is a major factor in the passing game again with 30 catches for 351 yards."Those three are very good receivers that can do everything Eric Weddle Jersey ," McVay said of Woods, Cooks and Kupp. "I think their skill sets complement each other really well."NOTES: CB Sam Shields missed practice Thursday with an illness. ... LB Trevon Young returned to full participation in practice. ... Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips jokingly referred to this weekend's trip to New Orleans as "another revenge game for me." Phillips was the Saints' 38-year-old interim coach for four games in 1985, the first of his six stints as an NFL head coach. "Then they shipped me out of there, so I'm still mad at them," Phillips said laughingly. ... Dante Fowler said his first full practice with the Rams went well, and he is optimistic about being able to contribute Sunday if the Rams put him on the field. Los Angeles acquired the pass-rusher from Jacksonville in a trade Tuesday. "That's probably one of the easiest positions to come in and play," Phillips said. "You say, 'Hey, you go rush the passer on this down.' But he's picked up everything well. Seems like a sharp guy. Picked up everything so far. We may use him in our first- and second-down defense, too." The Arizona Cardinals might just be the antidote for what's ailing the Los Angeles Rams.The Rams (11-3) are the NFL West champions again, and have the NFC's second-best record behind New Orleans (12-2). But Los Angeles has lost two in a row, 15-6 at Chicago and, last week, 30-23 to Philadelphia.So the Cardinals (3-11) Austin Blythe Jersey , 1-6 at home and at the bottom of the NFL standings under first-year coach Steve Wilks, would seem a welcome opponent when the teams square off Sunday in Arizona's final home game of its difficult season.Of course, Rams coach Sean McVay would never say that even if he thought it was true."That's certainly not our attitude," he said. "Our attitude is that we have a lot of respect for this football team and for coach Wilks, and we've got to be ready to go. There's a lot of great players on both sides - proven, high-caliber players, some Hall of Fame players, perennial Pro Bowl players. We've got to be ready to go."The Cardinals were gashed for a season-worst 215 yards on the ground in their 40-14 blowout loss at Atlanta last week. The could mean a big day for Todd Gurley, if he's healthy. McVay indicated on Wednesday he expected his prolific running back to play after being limited by knee inflammation this week."We expect that if he progresses the way that we anticipate, that he'll be ready to go," McVay said.Gurley didn't have a big day statistically but ran for three touchdowns in Los Angeles' 34-0 home rout of Arizona in Week 2.Jared Goff threw for 354 yards in that game, but is going through a rough stretch. In the last three games, he's thrown for one touchdown and been intercepted six times."I think each game is independent of each other," he said. "I don't think there's one singular thing. Look at last game Sean Mannion Jersey , made a couple dumb plays that hurt us and you can't do that."The Rams are two-touchdown favorites. Here are some things to consider about the game:FITZGERALD'S FINALEThis might be Larry Fitzgerald's final home game of his spectacular 15-year NFL career. Then again, it might not.Fitzgerald, as is his custom, was not at all forthcoming on the subject of his retirement when the subject was broached Thursday."If I decide to retire, I'll let you guys know, seriously," he said. "So I don't know why we keep asking these questions. You know me. I've been answering for the last three years. Nothing's going to change."In other words, when he decides, he'll let everyone know.Fitzgerald has caught a pass in 226 consecutive games and recently passed Jerry Rice's record for most catches with one team. With a TD catch on Sunday, he'd have 19 in his career against the Rams. Only Rice has more against a single team, 25 against Atlanta and 20 against the Rams.GOFF'S CONFIDENCEGoff said he thought that toward the end of the Philadelphia game, the Rams got back to being themselves on offense."I felt like we moved the ball really well and we were able to build off some things there and able to kind of take what the defense was giving us," he said. "I felt like I learned a lot in the last game and was able to grow."Goff said it's not that defenses are figuring them out."I think it always comes back to us, just doing what we do 鈥?executing Jamon Brown Jersey ," he said. "Defenses are going to present different looks every game and that's no excuse. It happens every game. It's happened every game we've played this year. So, it just comes down to us executing and being our best and just really focusing on the details."RAM BACKSWith Gurley's status a bit shaky, the Rams signed veteran running back C.J. Anderson this week.Even if Gurley plays, there could be some action for Anderson."Could really see him playing a role this week," McVay said, "very sharp, cerebral player. He's played in some systems very similar in terms of the verbiage, some of the things we try to emphasize specific to the running game and in protection."PHAROH SWITCHReturn specialist and wide receiver Pharoh Cooper went from a Super Bowl contender to a leading candidate for the No. 1 draft pick this week when he was waived by Los Angeles and claimed by the Cardinals."It's going to be great to see all those guys," he said of facing the Rams so soon. "I've built so many relationships with them. That's still family over there, but at the end of the day I play for the Cardinals now."HOLIDAY SACKSArizona defensive end Chandler Jones is donating $20,000 for every sack he gets in the final two games 鈥?against the Rams and Seattle 鈥?to Phoenix Children's Hospital. He has 5 1-2 career sacks against Los Angeles and 8 1-2 against the Seahawks.
