The Rams are receiving some succor at valid the correct time.
Brandin Cooks has been cleared to come and ought to smooth play in Los Angeles’ Monday night contest against the white-hot Baltimore Ravens, coach Sean McVay confirmed Wednesday.
Cooks has neglected as regards to a month of action after suffering yet one other concussion — his 2d of the season — in Week 8, which required him to twice meet with concussion consultants. Cooks’ history of concussions has grown bearing on, alongside with his most notable one taking place for the interval of the first half of Huge Bowl LII.
Throughout his most up-to-date absence (following a remove over the lowly Bengals), the Rams’ offense has struggled in all departments. Jared Goff and Co. handed for 291 yards in Cooks’ most up-to-date paunchy-recreation time out, and has since didn’t interrupt 220 yards in every of Los Angeles’ final two outings.
The Rams managed to bounce back with a Sunday night remove over Chicago in Week 11 with powerful thanks due to Todd Gurley’s single-recreation resurgence (25 carries, 97 yards, one touchdown), but it if truth be told’s been obvious that Cooks’ presence has been neglected.
Los Angeles will salvage Cooks back in time to rearrange for perhaps its ultimate test yet: the 8-2 Ravens, who hang looked unbeatable for a good deal of of the final month and a half. Cooks’ return can even succor bridge the gap widened by the absence of Robert Woods, who neglected Sunday night’s remove and continues to be away from the team to handle a family topic.
