THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Rams receiver Brandin Cooks won’t play in Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh while he seeks further medical help for his second concussion in a month.
Cooks was ruled out by Rams coach Sean McVay on Wednesday.
Cooks was hurt Oct. 27 during the Rams’ win over Cincinnati in London, and he has not cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol. He flew to Pittsburgh on Wednesday for the second time since his injury to meet with specialists.
Cooks first went into the concussion protocol this season during the Rams’ loss to Seattle on Oct. 3. He returned swiftly from that injury, but McVay says the Rams are being cautious.
Cooks has been evaluated for concussions at least four times in the past two years.
