Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks will miss Week 10’s contest against the Steelers. He has been ruled out with a concussion.
ESPN’s Los Angeles Rams reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted on Tuesday that Cooks will go to Pittsburgh early to see a specialist.
Brandin Cooks is en route to Pittsburgh to meet with specialists, Sean McVay said, to further look into his concussions. He has also been ruled OUT for the game.

Despite the Rams having a bye in Week 9, Cooks prognosis did not get any better. This is the reason he will see a specialist in Pittsburgh. The visit will hopefully reveal more about the head injury and provide more insight into how long he will be sidelined.
In 2019, Cooks has 27 receptions for 402 yards and only one touchdown. Despite playing in all eight games of LA’s season so far, these numbers are not great. The Rams’ offense as a whole has been disappointing this season, especially after a conference-winning campaign a year ago.
On pace to finish around 400 yards short of his yardage total last year, Cooks cannot afford to miss time. The Rams will also need him back on the field as soon as possible.
The Rams will continue their season off of their bye against the Steelers on Sunday, November 10.
