McVay said on Wednesday, "It's going to give a lot of guys an opportunity to be able to move on. Whenever you lose a player, you never replace him."

But what it does provide is an opportunity for us to learn about a lot of the other guys in that receiver's room and really our offense in general.

Ahead of his performance against the New Orleans Saints in Week 11, Kupp has led the Rams in receiving yards by 37.8% this season.

There is a replacement for the current Super Bowl MVP Matthew Stafford and he has caught six of the team's nine receiving touchdowns so far.

 McVay sees Kupp's absence as an opportunity for the other wide receivers on the roster to showcase their abilities and potentially earn future roles.

Even though Kupp being sidelined is unfortunate for the Rams, McVay is taking a positive approach by asking more of others on the roster.
