Rams QB Stetson Bennett goes on reserve/non-football illness list

Los Angeles Rams Place Backup Quarterback Stetson Bennett on Reserve/Non-Football Illness List

The Los Angeles Rams have made a roster move, placing backup quarterback Stetson Bennett on the reserve/non-football illness (NFI) list, according to an announcement by Rams head coach Sean McVay on Wednesday.

McVay did not provide specific details about Bennett’s situation but clarified that it is unrelated to the right shoulder injury he was dealing with last week. In a press conference, McVay stated, “Out of respect for him and the situation, I’m going to leave all the specifics and particulars in-house. And I want to be able to do that out of respect for that situation, so I’m not going to really have any follow-up information or anything that I’ll give in that regards.”

With Stetson Bennett on the NFI list, Rams quarterback Brett Rypien will continue to serve as the backup to Matthew Stafford, a role he assumed in Week 1 when the Rams faced the Seattle Seahawks. When asked about the impact of moving Bennett to the NFI list on the Rams’ quarterback room, McVay emphasized that some matters transcend football, saying, “I think there are certain things that are a lot bigger than that.”

“The fortunate thing for us is that Brett Rypien has been in-house,” McVay added. “He’s on our practice squad. He was the backup last week, and he’s going to continue to be in that situation until anything changes on that note.”

McVay also mentioned that he has had the opportunity to meet with Stetson Bennett, showing support for the young quarterback during this challenging time.

The Rams made a significant move in the NFL draft when they traded up to select Stetson Bennett in the fourth round. Bennett gained recognition for leading the University of Georgia to back-to-back national championships in the past two seasons, making him an intriguing addition to the Rams’ quarterback depth chart. Notably, Bennett is the first quarterback drafted by the Rams since they selected Jared Goff as the No. 1 overall pick in 2016.
