During the Rams’ bye week, quarterback Matthew Stafford treated his injured right thumb.As Carson Wentz assumed the backup position to Stafford, he started studying the playbook and getting used to it.

Additionally, coach Sean McVay spent time with his wife and infant son.

“I really went all in,” McVay remarked on Monday, “being able to have the baby a few weeks ago and spend some time, you know, learning how to change diapers and all that kind of stuff.”during a reporter videoconference. Thus, I wasn’t merely observing from the sidelines.

 

 

“I tried to be helpful without getting in the way of my wife. I had a great week with lots of Mr. Dad, which was nice. I might adjust to it.

In order to get ready for their Sunday game at SoFi Stadium against the Seattle Seahawks (6-3), the Rams (3-6) returned to practise on Monday.

Stafford missed the Green Bay Packers’ Nov. 5 loss because he participated in the closed practise, according to McVay. 15-year veteran Stafford is expected to start against a Seahawks team that just defeated the Washington Commanders.

McVay stated, “We expect Matthew to be able to start and play and do his thing and lead the way this week.” “Matthew should be ready to go.”

On October 29, Stafford, 35, suffered injuries during a Dallas Cowboys blowout.On November 5, Brett Rypien started in Stafford’s place against the Packers, but he was ineffective in the team’s 20-3 defeat.

The No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL draught, Wentz, was then signed by the Rams after Rypien was cut. Throughout five Philadelphia Eagles seasons, and oneWentz passed for 151 touchdowns with 66 interceptions while playing for the Washington Commanders and the Indianapolis Colts, respectively.

Wentz was set free by the Commanders in February.

McVay stated of Wentz, who turns 31 next month, “We’re excited about getting Matthew back, but I think to have somebody that’s played as well as he’s played, has had as many experiences as he’s had, to be out there and available is kind of rare.”

Rypien was added to the practise squad by the Seahawks.

Coach of the Rams quarterbacks, Zac Robinson, assisted in getting Wentz ready. According to McVay, Wentz “got a bunch of reps” during Monday’s workout.

McVay stated, “I believe he was just happy to be able to enter a building and be around a guy like Matthew.” “They both hold each other in the highest regard.”

According to McVay, both linebacker Ernest Jones and offensive lineman Rob Havenstein, who missed the game against the Packers due to calf and knee injuries, respectively, will be fit to play against the Seahawks.

Bobby Brown, a nose tackle for the Rams, has also been cleared to resume practise from injured reserve.

The Rams had suffered losses to the Packers, Cowboys, and Pittsburgh Steelers before their break. However, McVay gave cause for hope, particularly if the Rams are able to “seize and maximise game-changing opportunities in their remaining games.

The Rams play the Seahawks in the season’s finale.The Commanders, the New Orleans Saints, the New York Giants, the San Francisco 49ers, the Cleveland Browns, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Cardinals.

Hey, this is what it’s looked like when it’s been right, is something that your guys can take great comfort in, McVay stated. Let’s continue moving forward. Let’s not allow the emotion from some of the past weeks to cloud our judgement as we move forward in a way that is both realistic and optimistic in order to continue growing and realising the potential of this group.

And don’t allow anyone else to write that story but ourselves.
