Rams’ Matthew Stafford leaves game against Saints to be evaluated for concussion

One week after missing a game due to a concussion, Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford left Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints and was evaluated for a concussion.

Stafford cleared the league’s concussion protocol — which underwent changes earlier this season and faced much scrutiny in the wake of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s scary injury on Sept. 30 — on Friday, the team announced.

Last Sunday, John Wolford quarterbacked the Rams in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Inactive this week with a neck injury, Wolford was replaced on the depth chart by Bryce Perkins, who relieved Stafford in New Orleans.

Before exiting, Stafford was 11-for-18 with 159 passing yards and two touchdowns, including a 62-yard connection to Tutu Atwell.

Entering the game, Stafford had as many touchdowns (eight) as interceptions, but he had not thrown a pick in his last two games.

The NFL and NFL Players’ Association investigated the Dolphins’ handling of Tago vailoa’s evaluation for a concussion that allowed him to return to a Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills only to suffer a debilitating concussion four days later against the Cincinnati Bengals. The change went into effect two weeks later, with the term “ataxia” —an abnormality of balance/stability, motor coordination or dysfunctional speech caused by a neurological issue — taking a central role. Any player showing signs of ataxia is now prohibited from returning to a game.
