When it rains, it pours for the Los Angeles Rams.
Sean McVay’s team hasn’t been able to catch a break since winning the Super Bowl, and they won’t start the upcoming season in the best shape.
The Rams will most likely be without their best offensive weapon, as star WR Cooper Kupp suffered a setback in his hamstring injury.
Kupp had already missed some time in training camp, and according to McVay, his status is day-to-day right now.
Now, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Kupp has traveled to Minnesota to visit a ‘noted body specialist’ to try and find the root of his hamstring issue.

Kupp has suffered the same injury twice in a short period of time, so they don’t want it to be a lingering issue that could keep him on the shelf throughout the course of the season.
McVay and the Rams reportedly have no intention whatsoever of getting him on the field unless they’re 100% certain of his status.
Kupp struggled with injuries last season.
He was fresh off setting several marks and running away with the Offensive Player of the Year award and a Super Bowl ring.
And even though he missed half of the season, he still managed to have 75 receptions, 812 yards, and six scores.
The Rams aren’t projected to be the same top-tier team they were two years ago, especially with all the questions surrounding Matthew Stafford’s health, and this is the last thing their fans wanted to hear just days before the start of the season.NEXT: Analyst Suggests Sean McVay Could Make Surprising Career Move
