Rams QB Matthew Stafford leaves game with Cowboys early with thumb injury

October 29th, 2023

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was replaced by Brett Rypien at the end of the third quarter in their game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon while dealing with a thumb injury.

Stafford injured his thumb in the first half of the matchup at AT&T Stadium after it collided with Cowboys defensive tackle Mazi Smith’s helmet. His thumb started bleeding significantly, and Stafford went to the locker room early to get it checked out.

Stafford returned to the game to start the third quarter where he led the Rams on a 75-yard touchdown drive and caught a two-point conversion on a pass from Tutu Atwell to briefly cut Dallas’ lead to 17 points.

Yet right before the third quarter ended, Stafford went back to the locker room and re-emerged with his right hand heavily taped. The Rams then went with Rypien, who had yet to play this season.

Stafford went 13-of-22 for 162 yards with a touchdown and an interception before he went down. He entered the day with 1,908 yards and seven touchdowns with six interceptions this season.
