While the ball was out of reach he took a low blow from Arizona Cardinals defensive back Marco Wilson.
Kupp then went down awkwardly and grabbed his lower left leg.

And with the Rams in last place in the NFC West with a 3-6 record – there is no reason to rush him back.
The team will likely miss the playoffs after winning the Super Bowl last year.
After beating the Cincinnati Bengals, Kupp won Super Bowl MVP after posting 92 receiving yards and catching two touchdown passes.
Kupp has followed that up this year with 812 yards receiving and six touchdown passes.
But it’s possible season his season will be over.
In Kupp’s absence, Allen Robinson II will be the team’s top receiver.
Also, expect Van Jefferson to become more involved in the offense.
In the offseason, Kupp and the Rams reportedly agreed on a three-year contract worth more than $80 million.
The deal guarantees at least $35 million.
Next up, the Rams will play the Saints on Sunday.
