Matthew Stafford Misses Practice Thursday, Status for Week 9 in Doubt

Stafford has yet to practice this week after sustaining an apparent thumb injury in their loss to the Cowboys last Sunday. Any time missed by Rams signal caller would significantly lower the ceilings of WRs Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua, who both had quiet outings in Week 8 with backup Brett Rypien unable to get anything going in the passing game over a few drives. Fantasy managers should have a backup plan ready in the event that Stafford is unable to go while bearing in mind that the Rams’ bye comes next week. If the Rams wanted to allow Stafford an extended rest to make sure he’s all the way healed for the stretch run, it wouldn’t be the most surprising development in the world. Stafford would be a low-end QB2 once again if he ultimately does suit up on Sunday against the Packers.
