Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford slammed his surgically repaired right thumb into a defender’s helmet during a throw Monday, ending his day early and leaving the Rams’ sideline to hold its collective breath.
The Rams had no substantive update on Stafford’s status after practice, but Rams coach Sean McVay said he was hopeful “everything will be OK there.”
“We’ll see,” McVay said. “He’s so tough as it is. Look at what he played through all last year to get the thumb cleaned up. He’s a tough guy. We’ll see what they say and take it one day at a time.”
We first reported this story Monday night and it sounded like there wasn't too much concern. But it's the same thumb Stafford had surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in early March, shortly after the Rams acquired him from the Detroit Lions. We'll continue to update. Wolford took the rest of the first team snaps but Stafford did walk off the field gripping his helmet with his right hand.
