After battling elbow tendonitis, Matthew Stafford is on schedule to play this season


Despite the elbow tendinitis he’s had throughout training camp, Matthew Stafford will be ready for the Rams’ regular-season opener. It’s noteworthy that the Rams have been closely monitoring the quarterback’s workload for the previous month that he said he “felt excellent” the day after an intrasquad scrimmage in which he fully participated. Stafford continued by saying he won’t be setting a time limit on whether the bothersome issue will be resolved by Week 1 or whether it will last the entire season. The 34-year-old did, however, say that any residual pain shouldn’t impair his performance on the field. Despite dealing with a lot of discomfort throughout the course of his 13-year NFL career, Stafford conquered the problem in 2021, the year the Rams won the Super Bowl. Stafford missed offseason training after having an elbow operation, but he has continually played down the bothersome issue and insisted that it won’t affect his performance. Sean McVay, head coach of the Rams, also said he is unconcerned about Stafford.
