The Arizona Cardinals may be lucky come Sunday, but who knows with how they have played in 2020.
According to the Los Angeles Rams, the team has placed wide receiver Cooper Kupp on the Reserve/Covid-19 list.

The Cardinals will have to keep aware, as according to Darren Urban, if Kupp is on the close contact list, he will likely be available on Sunday, meaning this is another development for the Rams we will have to watch play out.
If Kupp is on the list as a close contact, I think he would clear by game day (especially playing at home). But best-case scenario he won't get any practice reps with a new quarterback. https://t.co/bs9kyjLFKU— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) December 29, 2020
Kupp has been outstanding this season, as he leads the team in receptions and yards on the season with 92 catches for 974 yards and three touchdowns.
If he misses, it would be a big blow to the Rams and especially Kupp who has had an outstanding season for the second consecutive season in a row.
The Rams still would have Robert Woods, one of their top receiving options, but going into the game they could be without their top two running backs in Darrell Henderson and Cam Akers, their starting quarterback and only player to have thrown a pass this season in Jared Goff and then of course Kupp.
Now, will Kyler Murray be ready to play?
