Matthew Stafford (thumb) leaves Rams practice early, X-rays negative

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford's X-rays on his thumb came back negative, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Stafford exited Monday's practice early after hitting his throwing thumb on a player's helmet. The veteran quarterback underwent a minor operation on the same thumb earlier this offseason, but he's expected to return to action well before the Rams' Sunday night opener against the Chicago Bears.

Stafford is currently the QB11 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to average 268.6 passing yards per game with 33.76 touchdowns and 11.0 interceptions in 2021. Among the 44 quarterbacks with at least 100 drop backs last season, Stafford ranked 16th in Passing Net Expected Points per drop back.
