As the Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Rams square off in Week 13, injuries look to be a big part of the story. Dorian Thompson-Robinson and Denzel Ward were not able to play in the game on top of a long list of players who are on injured reserve.

During the second quarter of Browns vs Rams, wide receivers Puka Nacua and Amari Cooper were hurt on back-to-back plays. Nacua seemed to hurt his arm or shoulder but the initial announcement was that he was questionable to return with a rib injury.

Cooper dropped a key third-down pass prior to Nacua’s injury but was hit by two Rams defenders after the drop. Cleveland’s top receiver was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion:

If Cooper can’t return, the Browns will be without their top quarterback, running back and wide receiver on top of their starting tackles.


Update after halftime:

Cooper has been ruled out for the rest of the game:


As we’ve seen with Marquise Goodwin and Dorian Thompson-Robinson, it could be tough for Cooper to be available in Week 14 either.
