Matthew Stafford, the quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams, will not play this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs because he is 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 became numb during a collision in the game last Sunday, according to McVay’s addition on Wednesday, which prompted more testing on Monday. Additionally, the head coach hasn’t ruled out the possibility of benching his starting quarterback for the duration of the campaign.
McVay didn’t commit to a quarterback for Sunday, but it looks like backup Bryce Perkins will start. Perkins was predicted to see the majority of first-team reps this week, according to a prior report from NFL Network Insider. John Wolford had some limitations at practice on Wednesday due to his own neck problem.
