Matthew Stafford Shares Reaction To People Being Concerned About His ‘Abnormal’ Elbow Injury

While everyone seems concerned about Matthew Stafford’s elbow injury but the QB seems to be in good spirits.

Earlier this week, Rams head coach revealed that Stafford was dealing with an “abnormal” elbow injury.

“It’s a little bit abnormal for a quarterback,” McVay told reporters. “Some of this stuff is things that MLB pitchers deal with, so it is something that we’re kind of learning about on the , the QB seems

NFL insider Ian Rapoport called the injury “thrower’s elbow” and said it “isn’t nothing” while speaking to the Pat McAfee show on Friday.

On Saturday, Stafford spoke to the media and says while he still has some pain in the elbow he’s beginning to feel better.

“I just have a little soreness,” Stafford said. “We’re working through it. I felt pretty good today. I thought it looked pretty good. Just trying to be smart with it and make me feel as good as I can feel going into Week One while still getting as many reps as I can too.”

“We got a great plan,” Stafford said. “I’m feeling stronger every time I come out here and throw. I don’t know if you guys were watching, I felt like I could make any throw I wanted to today. I’m just trying to be smart when I get those opportunities to make sure I can come out here, cut it loose, turn it loose like I did today and go from there.”

Stafford says he doesn’t want to get into details about whether the injury is abnormal or not.

“I don’t know if it’s a baseball or a football injury,” Stafford said. “I currently play football, and it’s on a football player so I guess it’s a football injury at this point. I’m not really too worried about what it’s called or whether it’s abnormal or not, or whatever. I’m worried about here today. How did I feel? Let’s continue to progress and get better.”

As of now Stafford is still expected to be the starting QB for the team’s opening game on September 8th.
