LA Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has not been removed from the game during Thursday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks, but he has suffered a finger injury on his throwing hand that needed attention from medical staff. Stafford was on the field for a fourth-and-2 situation late in the second quarter, then came off of the field in favor of the field goal unit and had his hand wrapped in tape by Vice President of Sports Medicine and Performance Reggie Scott.
Stafford reportedly suffered a sprained index finger on his throwing hand on Thursday night against the Seahawks.

Stafford has been shaky in the first half against Seattle, completing 13 of 19 passes for 131 yards and an ugly interception in the end zone. He has been about as inaccurate as he was in Week 4 against the Cardinals, which is to say that some of his passes look great and others look terrible.
The Rams trail 7-3 at halftime.
Stafford entered the game with a wrapped elbow on his non-throwing arm that is considered not serious.
Before anybody freaks about the large bandage on Stafford's left (non-throwing) elbow, that thing had a raspberry the size of a hamster on it when we saw him this week for his presser so looks like just a precaution/wanting to keep it covered in tonight's game.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) October 7, 2021
