The Los Angeles Rams' injured wideout Cooper Kupp will be sidelined for the foreseeable future, but the reigning Super Bowl MVP has taken the news in stride. 

Kupp on Tuesday expressed gratitude for the team's medical staff and said he was excited to see what the future held. 

"Thanks to everyone who has reached out and sent prayers! This is unfortunately just part of the game. Appreciate having a trusted medical team around me. Gonna get this thing fixed, then get back to work to get back to work!," said Kupp.

Kupp's upbeat demeanor belies the Rams' 2022 campaign, which has resulted in a disappointing 3-6 record. Having dropped each of their last three games, LA's chances at a playoff berth are dwindling by the week. 

Coach Sean McVay forecasted at least a four-week absence for Kupp. But if the Rams are eliminated from postseason contention by that point, the team would almost certainly keep Cooper sidelined ahead of the 2023 season. Kupp is under team control until 2027, when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has hinted at sour grapes with the Rams, so a reunion this season seems unlikely. Allen Robinson II, a veteran of nine seasons in the league, seems the most likely to see his role increase in Kupp's stead. 

Should the team opt for a more comprehensive rebuild, 23-year-old receivers Tutu Atwell and Lance McCutcheon could see targets from Matthew Stafford.
