BET À DAY
The Los Angeles Rams may have suffered a heavy loss as quarterback Matthew Stafford was put on concussion protocol on Tuesday.
< p>Head coach Sean McVay made the announcement at a press conference on Wednesday, a few days before Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
“He's following protocol. We'll go one day at a time with him, the pilot said. This is what our medical experts have deemed best after gathering information. It's a smart and fair decision.”
“It's more important for the person than for the player in this kind of case, as we know. Nobody is more competitive and wants to be with their teammates more than Matthew,” added McVay.
The Rams (3-5) had the opportunity to regain a record of , 500 last Sunday, but they fell 16-13 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Stafford has also been rather discreet, completing only 13 of his 27 pass attempts for gains of 165 yards and a major.
The star quarterback's second season in Los Angeles is a lot less convincing than the first. After eight games, Stafford fired eight stints for touchdowns and committed as many interceptions. His 1,928 yards through the air only rank him 15th in the NFL in that regard.
