The Los Angeles Rams and Green Bay Packers are heading into Week Nine both in desperate need of a win. The Packers (2-5) have lost four straight and are looking for signs of growth on the offense. The Rams (3-5) have lost two in a row and are trying to claw back into their divisional race.
As the Rams prepare for their trip to Lambeau Field, they have officially made a move at quarterback that could mean Matthew Stafford won’t be suiting up.
The Los Angeles Rams Elevate QB Dresser Winn To The Active Roster Prior To Their Matchup With The Green Bay Packers
A thumb injury has kept Stafford questionable for Sunday’s game against the Packers, so the Rams have brought in another backup quarterback in case Stafford cannot play.
For Sunday, the Rams have activated Dresser Winn from their practice squad.
If Stafford is unable to play, Brett Rypien would likely start for the Rams and Winn would be the back up.
Undrafted out of Tennessee-Martin, Winn originally signed with the Rams this year as an undrafted free agent. After not making the Rams’ roster after the preseason, he briefly played for the Canadian Football League’s Edmonton Elks before returning to the Rams’ practice squad.
It would obviously be a huge break for the Packers if they didn’t have to face off against Super Bowl winning quarterback Matthew Stafford. As a result of a UCL sprain in his right thumb, Matthew Stafford missed Wednesday and Thursday’s practices. Despite not looking likely to play in Week 9, he hasn’t yet been ruled out.
