Injury Matthew Stafford dealing with elbow tendinitis
Rams trying to manage QB's "abnormal" pain
By: Doug Orth | Aug 5 2022, 1:15 am

Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams HC Sean McVay said QB Matthew Stafford's right elbow pain is "a little bit abnormal for a quarterback," comparing it instead to what pitchers deal with. Stafford, who dealt with an elbow injury last season, received an injection in his right elbow during the offseason. He did not throw during the Rams' spring workouts, saying he and the team were trying to be smart with his throwing arm. Stafford threw during individual and 7-on-7 drills on Thursday but did not take part in the team reps. McVay said earlier in the week that he doesn't expect Stafford to do so before the Rams leave Irvine on Aug. 10. (ESPN - Sarah Barshop)

FFToday's Take: This is obviously an issue that fantasy managers need to monitor, but it also seems like the Rams aren't overly concerned. It almost goes without saying Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson would be negatively impacted in a big way if Stafford has to miss time. Fantasy managers should proceed as if Stafford will be OK for Week 1, but the team may need to give him regular rest throughout the season. John Wolford is the primary backup.
