  • Rams' Stetson Bennett: Future in L.A. looking uncertain

    Head coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that he's uncertain whether Bennett (illness) will remain with the Rams in 2024, saying it's "a conversation for another time," Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

    Bennett, a 2023 fourth-round pick, spent his entire rookie campaign on the reserve/NFI list due to an undisclosed non-football illness. His absence was felt during the portions of the season in which Matthew Stafford missed time, as the Rams struggled to find answers while cycling through an unimpressive carousel of backup options. McVay said he thinks Bennett is "doing better," but that he "wouldn't be in a position to answer that accurately right now."

  • Rams' Stetson Bennett: May not return for 2023

    Head coach Sean McVay told reporters Monday that it is less likely that Bennett (illness) will return to the team this season, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

    Bennett was placed on the reserve/NFI list on Sept. 13 with an illness, though Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reported at the time that McVay did not expand on the specifics of the illness "out of respect for the particulars and the specifics." With Matthew Stafford sustaining a UCL sprain in his right thumb in the Rams' 43-20 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, Bennett would have been in line to take over as the backup QB behind Brett Rypien if Stafford were to miss time, but it appears as though the rookie quarterback out of Georgia is unlikely to make an appearance in the 2023 season.

  • Rams' Stetson Bennett: Goes to NFI list

    The Rams placed Bennett on the reserve/NFI list Wednesday, Greg Beacham of The Associated Press reports.

    It's not clear what precisely prompted the move, partially because Coach Sean McVay declined to explain it to reporters. Bennett had reportedly been dealing with shoulder soreness ahead of Week 1, so it could be that, but for now all that is known for certain is that the Rams will need a new backup quarterback for the immediate future.

  • Rams' Stetson Bennett: Dealing with illness

    Bennett's placement on the reserve/NFI list Wednesday was due to an illness, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    When Rams coach Sean McVay was initially asked about Bennett on Wednesday, he declined to indicate the nature of the issue that resulted in the quarterback landing on the reserve/NFI list. It has since been made clear that Bennett is dealing with an illness, though McVay declined to elaborate "out of respect for the particulars and the specifics." Bennett had been managing a shoulder injury for several weeks, but that appears unrelated to Wednesday's transaction.

  • Rams' Stetson Bennett: Out Week 1

    Bennett has been ruled out for Sunday's season opener against the Seahawks due to a right shoulder injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    The Rams will call up Brett Rypien from the practice squad to serve as their backup quarterback spot behind Matthew Stafford. Bennett has been dealing with arm soreness through training camp, culminating in a disappointing preseason finale where he completed just four of nine passes for 14 yards and two interceptions. Bennett's status beyond Week 1 is unclear as of now.
