As a WR that comes with the job, right?

Fans have been all over other players labeling them as injury prone for the same kind of on their job injuries that come from being rolled up on or other freak injuries they have no control over.

The list I have found is 7 separate injuries long for Kupp. In 2018 he had two stints where he missed games.

I love me some Kupp, I want to see what other Rams fans think. Does he get a pass from this label because we like him? So far the only 2 replies says yes.
The average NFL player suffers from 3.76 injuries in their career in which they miss time. That’s pretty standard for an NFL now man. IDK if I’d call Kupp injury prone compared to others.

The info I posted earlier shows 7 injuries so far in his career. And, he has only played 2 complete seasons.

Same site shows Henderson with 8 and he get crapped on regularly on this board for being injury prone.

Stop it, he got hung out to dry by a shitty backup QB who should not even be on a Super Bowl winning teams roster.
Kupp is simply one of those try his hardest on every play dudes. Its something to behold.
Thats not to say Bruce and Holt going to the ground on all those 20+ yard "deep ins" in the GSOT days was not also great. I liked those plays.
McVay needs to find a real backup, and soon. Its not like he is not going to have to find his starter in the not too distant future either.
And while you are at it, bell cow running back. We are the RAMS after all.
Yeah because most players don’t try that hard week to week.

You do not get it. If you are any sort of long times Rams fan you would remember fans complaining about Bruce and Holt just going to the ground with no YAK yards.
Kupp is not like that in any way. More chances to get hurt.
That is what I meant and I think you knew it.

I get it just fine. People have different standards for players they like but they don’t like admitting it.

I was one of them. We watched every week Steve Smith catch a ball and make a move and take it to the house. Then we would watch Bruce and Holt catch the ball and fall to the ground. But then they had bulger throwing the ball to them so there was little chance of yac with his ball placement.

Yes I see what you mean, but does it show if they actually missed time because of said injury? Someone could have a strain but still play yet it still be listed.

Yes, the column on the right shows if they missed any games. On Kupp’s list I believe he was evaluated for a head injury but still played the next game his first or second year.
