Cobb would miss at least four games while on injured reserve: trips to Seattle, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis and at home against the San Francisco 49ers.
Earlier in the week, Rams head coach Sean McVay admitted the IR job was a possibility, as Los Angeles doesn’t want to rush Cobb’s return from a hamstring injury he initially sustained during training camp practice Aug. 1 and aggravated last week.
McVay said Wednesday that Cobb’s injury did not follow the “standard protocol when a soft tissue injury progresses.” Cobb met with a specialist in Minnesota earlier in the week to get to the root of his hamstring problems.
“[We’re] “I’m trying to continue to understand exactly what he is so he can go back to feeling like the Cooper we know and love. Hopefully we will,” said McVay.
Cobb has not played in a game since Week 10 of 2022 after an ankle injury ended his season. He had 75 catches for 812 yards and six touchdowns in nine games.
