Shark Bites

The Rams and QB Matt Stafford agreed to a 4-year, $160 million extension with $135 million guaranteed. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport notes that it's "effectively a 3-year extension" with "added years for cap purposes." So consider Stafford signed with the Rams through the 2024 season.

Recent Shark Bites

Rams QB Matthew Stafford has been diagnosed with a spinal cord contusion, HC Sean McVay said after Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. The "indication" is that it's a season-ending injury, McVay added. Stafford was placed on IR this week, knocking him out until at least Week 17. And we'd be surprised if he played in either of the final 2 games for the going-nowhere Rams. We'll see if the injury impacts Stafford's 2023 offseason.

Rams QB Matt Stafford (neck) has been placed on IR. He's out for at least the next 4 games, making Week 17 his earliest possible return. With the Rams sitting at 3-8 and likely to be eliminated from playoff contention by then, we doubt Stafford takes the field again this year. He can be dropped from redraft rosters.

Rams QB Matt Stafford (neck) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. He's cleared the concussion protocol, HC Sean McVay said Friday, but is still dealing with the neck injury. McVay also announced Friday that QB John Wolford will get the start this weekend but that QB Bryce Perkins will also be available. The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue believes the Rams might use both QBs, which we saw back in Week 10. It's obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Rams HC Sean McVay confirmed that QB Matt Stafford (concussion, neck) is not expected to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday. We'll see whether L.A. sticks with QB Bryce Perkins or goes back to QB John Wolford, but neither guy would be more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy football.

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.
