  • Rams' Matthew Stafford: Rests arm Monday

    Coach Sean McVay relayed that Stafford (elbow) not throwing during Monday's practice was planned, with the QB expected to resume throwing Tuesday, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

    As long as Stafford faces any sort of throwing limitations, his progress will be worth monitoring, but Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic notes that the veteran QB isn't too concerned about an elbow issue that he describes as "something that is irritating, at the moment," but one that Stafford is working through in anticipation of being ready for Week 1 action.

  • Rams' Matthew Stafford: Dealing with nontraditional injury

    Coach Sean McVay called the discomfort in Matthew Stafford's right elbow "a little bit abnormal for a quarterback" Thursday, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

    McVay also confirmed a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that Stafford got an injection in his right elbow this offseason, which likely was the reason he didn't throw in OTAs or mandatory minicamp. While Stafford resumed throwing at the starting of training camp, he took a seat from team drills Monday and will be capped at non-team work until Wednesday, Aug. 10 due to lingering elbow tendinitis. In the end, his goal is to be ready for Week 1, so limitations on the practice field may dominate his activity in camp, and he may even need to manage pain during the regular season.

  • Rams' Matthew Stafford: Bothered by elbow tendinitis

    Stafford is still dealing with elbow tendinitis, and while he "did not get to a place he really needs to be" after an offseason procedure, the Rams expect him to be fine for the upcoming season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

    Rapoport says the offseason procedure was a "PRP-type deal" rather than a surgery. Stafford didn't throw at spring practices and had his reps limited through the first week of training camp, with coach Sean McVay recently mentioning Wednesday (Aug. 10) as a target date to resume throwing in team drills. Stafford is expected to start Week 1, but with some possibility he'll need to manage pain/discomfort during the season.

  • Rams' Matthew Stafford: Not throwing in team drills

    Rams head coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Stafford (elbow) to throw in any team drills before Aug. 10, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

    That date coincides with the completion of the squad's training camp practices in Irvine, Calif. That said, McVay reiterated that he's not overly concerned about Stafford's elbow, adding that the Rams' goal is simply to make sure that the quarterback is ready for the team's Sept. 8 regular-season opener against the Bills.

  • Rams' Matthew Stafford: Sits out team drills

    Stafford (elbow) didn't work in team drills Monday, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

    Coach Sean McVay noted that the approach was taken because the QB is "still feeling a little bit of pain." Despite that comment, McVay indicated that he's not too concerned, suggesting that Stafford could push through the pain, but "that's not the goal with somebody like him." With that in mind, consider Stafford day-to-day until he's next able to participate fully in team drills.

  • Rams' Matthew Stafford: Moves past elbow issue

    Stafford, who didn't throw during spring workouts as he dealt with a right elbow issue, has resumed throwing in training camp, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

    In the process, the veteran QB has been able to begin building his on-field rapport with Allen Robinson, who was signed this offseason to bolster a wide receiver corps that also includes returnees Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson (knee), but no longer currently rosters Robert Woods (traded to the Titans) and Odell Beckham (still unsigned). Per Barshop, as training camp has progressed, the chemistry between Stafford and Robinson appears to be developing, with the report noting that the two connected on a nice play during team drills Saturday, which resulted in the signal-caller finding Robinson between two defenders in the back of the end zone.
