It seems almost every time you close your eyes, the Los Angeles Rams lose yet another player due to injury.
Matthew Stafford is the latest to miss practice for the team, and head coach Sean McVay confirmed Wednesday that the Rams’ franchise QB is in the concussion protocol and in danger of missing Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Kelly Stafford, wife of Matthew, shared on Instagram she is “not ok” and that “the head is not something to be messed with”.
Whether the quarterback suits up for Sunday’s game has to be an incredibly difficult decision for the Stafford family, and they should do whatever is in the best interests of their children and their family.
With that said, we must prepare for how this Rams team could look without their signal caller. John Wolford has been in Los Angeles with McVay for four seasons - Bryce Perkins has also been an understudy for three years.
Kenneth Arthur and JB Scott discuss on this episode of Turf Show Times: The Podcast whether the Rams are screwed without Stafford and whether the mobile attributes of the young QB’s could add a dynamic element to this offense should the veteran sit out.
