Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
The Arizona Cardinals has claimed the Los Angeles Rams former Pro Bowl KR/WR Pharoh Cooper off waivers. The Rams released Cooper yesterday after signing free agent veteran running back C.J. Anderson.
Anderson signing is due mainly to the fact that both starting running back Todd Gurley and reserved running back Justin Davis sustained injuries against the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday night. The two are day to day with Davis injury being severe. Rookie John Kelly is currently the only healthy back on the roster. Anderson gives Rams added depth and a veteran presence in the backfield.
Coincidentally the Cardinals snagged Cooper off waivers as the Rams are set to play them on Sunday. Cardinals decimated with injuries at the receiver position added Cooper to play some this week. Rams look to get back on track by beating the Cardinals to secure their playoff position.
Many fans were puzzled to the Coopers release; however many felt that returner JoJo Natson been released after his fumble against the Eagles late in the fourth quarter. Coach McVay made it very clear that JoJo's one miscue didn't lead for him to be released as he's done a lot of positive things in the return game. Natson will continue to return punts and possibly kickoff returns too.
