Stafford Likely Done for Year; Knee Injury ‘Not Serious’ for Lamar Jackson

Stafford Likely Out for Year

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is likely to miss the remainder of the 2022 NFL season, according to The Athletic. Stafford suffered a spinal cord contusion and was placed on injured reserve earlier this week, Rams coach Sean McVay told reporters.
