There's a new quarterback in Hollywood, and you may have heard of him around here.
Matthew Stafford arrives in Los Angeles as the new face of the Rams after having been dealt from his only NFL home in the Motor City in exchange for Jared Goff earlier this year. And while fans on the west coast have visions of another Super Bowl run dancing in their heads, Stafford gave them a bit of a scare earlier today.
The #Rams got a scare when QB Matthew Stafford hit his throwing thumb on a helmet near the end of practice. Stafford left the field with the thumb wrapped but holding his helmet with that hand. #LosAngeles #LARams #NFL

He hit his surgically repaired thumb on a helmet during practice today, and didn't resume throwing. According to head coach Sean McVay, there was no additional information. And almost immediately, the fan reaction began pouring in.
