Trouble in paradise? Matthew Stafford could miss a game as he's placed in concussion protocol

The Los Angeles Rams' Super Bowl LVI championship defense has been much more complicated than expected and this Wednesday, the road has hit another bump in the road as head coach Sean McVay has announced that star quarterback Matthew Stafford has been placed in the concussion protocol.

"It is more importantly about the person than the player in these types of things as we know," McVay said. "Nobody is more of a competitor and wanting to be out there with his teammates than Matthew."

According to McVay's own statements, the decision has been made due to direction from vice president of sports medicine and performance Reggie Scott and if Stafford is unable to come out of this protocol he would be on track to miss his first game as Rams quarterback since arriving in Southern California last season, in fact it was in 2019 when he last saw activity while playing for the Detroit Lions.

Who would take Stafford's place on the Rams?

The other quarterbacks on the Rams' depht chart are John Wolford and Bryce Perkins, both with little or no experience opening games in the NFL and the former being the favorite to take that responsibility when Los Angeles hosts the Arizona Cardinals.

Wolford took Jared Goff's place for one game in 2020 and was also the starter during the Wild Card Round, however, he was injured in that matchup, Perkins has never played a game in the NFL.

The Rams have started the season with a 3-5 record and after losing last week in agonizing fashion to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fallen to third place in the NFC West 2.5 games behind the top-seeded Seattle Seahawks.
