Rams expect Matthew Stafford to start vs. Seahawks on Sunday

The Los Angeles Rams don’t expect to be without Matthew Stafford for the second straight game on Sunday. Sean McVay shared some good news during his media session on Monday, saying the Rams expect Stafford to start against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend.

Stafford missed Week 9 with a thumb injury, which he suffered the week prior in the Rams’ loss to the Cowboys. McVay was optimistic he’d be able to return after the bye and he confirmed Stafford should be good to go against Seattle.

McVay did indicate that perhaps Stafford isn’t 100% healthy, saying “he’ll be pushing through.”

Additionally, McVay said he expects Ernest Jones and Rob Havenstein to return to the field this weekend after they also missed Week 9 due to injuries. The bye week clearly served the Rams well because they’ll be getting several players back from injury.

The Rams host the Seahawks at SoFi Stadium on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET, their first game following the bye.
