Rams Quarterback Exits With Concussion Symptoms

The Los Angeles Rams' nightmare season continues. Quarterback Matthew Stafford exited in the third quarter of the team's Week 11 matchup with the New Orleans Saints due to concussion symptoms and has yet to return. Stafford took several hard hits before being pulled out of the game, including a nine-yard sack on his final play. He was replaced in the lineup by third-string quarterback Bryce Perkins. Top backup John Walford is inactive with a neck injury.

As for the Rams and Stafford, their playoff hopes appear on life support. Stafford had been playing one of his better games before his exit, netting 150 yards on 19 dropbacks with a 126.9 passer rating. However, if he does not return, the Rams will likely pick up their seventh loss of the season. Stafford could also be in line to miss future games. He missed Week 10 with a concussion
