Matthew Stafford not throwing at OTAs and may not throw until camp

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was present for the first day of organized team activities. But Stafford did not throw Monday.

Stafford confirmed that he received an anti-inflammatory shot in his right elbow for an issue he dealt with last season. He also briefly wore a brace to limit his range of motion while healing, Jordan Rodrigue of TheAthletic.com reported last month.

Stafford said he doesn’t know yet whether he will throw in any of the OTAs or the minicamp or wait until training camp begins in July.

“Still working on it,” Stafford said, via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times.

Rams coach Sean McVay seems unconcerned, and it seems likely if there was any concern, the team would have signed a fourth quarterback by now. Stafford, John Wolford and Bryce Perkins are the only quarterbacks on the roster.

That means Wolford and Perkins will get a lot of work this spring as Stafford continues to rest his arm.

  1. Stafford is a good dude and tough as nails. Happy he got outta dumpster Detroit and got to play for a winner.

  2. It was nice to see Stafford play for a real good team. He spent all of those years in Detroit with no shot at winning anything. He got a team around him and won. I am not a Rams fan, but really enjoyed watching Stafford get his chance to win.

  3. Normally, this time.of the year, he would be throwing temper tantrums about being in Detroit. Glad that’s behind him now.

  4. Matt Stafford never threw tantrums. He’s a consummate professional who always gives 100%, no matter who he plays for. Hopefully your team will get someone half as good.

  5. Whether or not Matthew is throwing, his participation in meetings and practices adds a lot to the program.

  6. I once read or heard that an NFL quarterback throws 150 passes per practice. If I was QB1, I might begin throwing in the practice week leading up to Week 1 and quit throwing the last game of my season.
