Stafford did not practice Wednesday due to a thumb injury. That's a sign Stafford won't play Sunday at the Green Bay Packers. The Rams have a bye in Week 10, which would give Stafford an extra week to recover.
Stafford banged his thumb on a defender's helmet during the Rams' loss last Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys. Stafford missed eight games last season due to injury but he has played in every game this season.
The Rams seem unlikely to rule him out before Sunday. Tests on Stafford's thumb were better than expected, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, and he's considered day-to-day. The Rams will give Stafford "right up before the game," said Rams coach Sean McVay, according to Rodrigue.
Stafford has played through plenty of injuries and will presumably push to play Sunday. The Rams will have to determine what's best for their quarterback before then.
