In the latest NFL news, Matthew Stafford, the quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams, will not play this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs because he is now in the league’s concussion protocol, according to head coach Sean McVay’s announcement on Wednesday. Stafford may or may not have a concussion, according to McVay, who informed reporters. According to the Rams’ current assessment of Stafford’s condition, a neck problem exists.
Stafford’s legs went numb during a collision in the game last Sunday, which prompted additional testing on Monday. Additionally, the head coach hasn’t ruled out the possibility of benching his starting quarterback for the duration of the campaign. If you want to be an NFL bookie you need to keep track of injuries like this.
Rams Roster Update
McVay didn’t commit to a quarterback for Sunday, but it looks like backup Bryce Perkins will start. Stafford started the Rams’ Week 11 loss to the Saints, but he was forced to leave the game after being sacked early in the third quarter. He left the game before the Rams suffered their fourth straight loss.
Following that, Perkins took over at quarterback for Stafford, and he’s scheduled to start his first NFL game this Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. In just his second appearance of the regular season against the Saints, Perkins completed 5 of 10 passes for 64 yards and added 39 yards on 5 carries. Many are excited to see how these changes will come out in our sports betting software.
The Rams are now 3-7 after winning the Super Bowl the previous season. Their most reliable receiver, Cooper Kupp, is on injured reserve due to an ankle ailment. This season, injuries, drama at the running back position, and limited production from some of the Rams’ newcomers have all emerged as major issues. But unsurprising, considering NFL Champions tend to have rougher seasons after a Championship season win.
