Shark Bites

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Rams QB Matthew Stafford had a "procedure" on his right elbow in the offseason "to deal with the pain he experienced last season and to help prepare for this season." Schefter's sources say Stafford's throwing elbow now feels better than it did a year ago. That corroborates last week's words from the QB and HC Sean McVay that Stafford's heading into the season with no limitations. At this point, all we can do is trust the Rams' words on their QB. We haven't lowered Stafford or his pass-catchers in our projections.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

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.
