Arizona Cardinals BLOG Los Angeles Rams NFL

Rams Matthew Stafford and Cardinals Kyler Murray are expected to miss their matchup today

Sunday’s battle between the Los Angeles Rams and the Arizona Cardinals is shaping up to be a clash between two backup QBs. The season is on the line for both teams today.

John Wolford is expected to start for the Rams in place of Matthew Stafford, who is recovering from a potential concussion and is in the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Kyler Murray is dealing with a hamstring injury, and the Cardinals are likely to start Colt McCoy. McCoy started three games filling in for Murray last season, leading Arizona to a 2-1 record over that stretch.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported on Sunday morning that friends of McCoy had “called the Rams on Saturday night to purchase ‘a bunch of tickets’ to today’s game in Los Angeles”.

The loser of this game effectively falls out of contention for 2022. The Rams would move to 3-6 and the Cardinals to 3-7.
