The Rams add a quarterback that no one anticipated.

With Matthew Stafford on the mend, Brett Rypien is expected to start with Dresser Winn as backup

formally rejecting L.A.’s attempts to bring back the former backup to Jared Goff and Matthew Stafford by adding John Wolford to their 53-man roster.

In other words, Winn is essentially the backup plan to the backup plan, and the Rams are very likely on the verge of using the former undrafted free agent from UT-Martin in a game this season.

Winn was also with the Rams in the preseason prior to being released.

Sean McVay says the team is going day to day with Stafford’s UCL thumb sprain, but it would be surprising to see him start against the Packers on Sunday with the bye week on deck, especially with the head coach mentioning that IR was a possibility only a day ago.

The Rams drafted a quarterback in the fourth round this year, but Stetson Bennett appears unlikely to be with the team this year, according to McVay.

That puts Brett Rypien in line to start against Green Bay with Winn as the backup, unless Stafford is able to go.
