The Lions will hold QB Matt Stafford out of today's game against the Bears, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Stafford has fractured bones in his back, and it's unclear if he'll miss more time beyond Week 10. His absence leaves QB Jeff Driskel, who joined the Lions in mid-September, as today's starter. The 2016 6th-rounder made 5 starts for the Bengals last year, completing just 58.6% of his passes and averaging only 5.5 yards per attempt. He did post a 5-to-2 TD:INT ratio and ran for 81 yards. Driskel is a bottom-barrel QB2 and is a big downgrade for Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and T.J. Hockenson. Upgrade the Bears defense.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Rams are "uncertain when or if" QB Matthew Stafford will return this season. Stafford is out for today's game at Kansas City with a neck strain. He has also landed in the league concussion protocol twice, though HC Sean McVay says the 2nd concussion hasn't been confirmed. It's easy to forget that we were all concerned about an issue with Stafford's right elbow entering the season. Throw in his myriad physical issues and a 3-7 record -- which will almost certainly add a loss to the Chiefs -- and it would make sense to let Stafford take the rest of the year off.
Rams QB Matt Stafford is out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs, HC Sean McVay said. Stafford is in the concussion protocol and is being evaluated for a neck injury after experiencing numbness in his legs during last week's loss to the Saints. It certainly seems like Stafford could miss more time beyond Week 12. QB Bryce Perkins is in line to make his 1st career start on Sunday.
Pro Football Talk reports that Rams QB Matt Stafford has entered the concussion protocol. HC Sean McVay refused to say whether Stafford was in the protocol in his Monday press conference. But if this PFT report is correct, Stafford is a long shot to be cleared for Week 12 and might miss multiple games.
Rams HC Sean McVay said Monday that QB Matt Stafford is still being evaluated for a concussion and is uncertain for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. "I think you wanna be really careful with that," McVay said. "It's gonna be about the person first and foremost." Considering he just sustained a concussion back in Week 9, we'd be surprised if Stafford played this weekend. His absence would leave the starting job to either QB John Wolford, who missed Week 11 with a neck injury, or QB Bryce Perkins.
Rams QB Matthew Stafford will undergo further testing on Monday to determine whether he'll enter the concussion protocol, according to the team. We'll update the situation when we know more. Stafford just sustained a concussion in Week 9.
