Rams’ Matthew Stafford assessed for concussion in loss to Saints
Matthew Stafford is reevaluated for concussion.
The Rams quarterback was sacked on a 3-and-8 during the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Saints and he left the game and did not return. Stafford, who had just approved concussion protocol so he could play against New Orleans, will now step back into the protocol.
Stafford was replaced by Bryce Perkins.
Stafford missed last week’s Rams game against the Cardinals while still in protocol. He was, however, released from the protocols on Friday.
He left the game having completed 11 of 18 passes for 159 yards with two touchdowns against New Orleans.
Perkins, meanwhile, completed just 5 of 10 passes for 64 yards, with second-string QB John Wolford ruled out before the game with a neck injury.
The defending Super Bowl champions haven’t had a good 2022 campaign. They arrived on Sunday having already scored the NFL’s third-fewest points this season. The Saints also won, 27-20, dropping the Rams to just 3-7.
Should Stafford miss any more time, their reign could soon be officially over.
