Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is dealing with "bad tendinitis" in his throwing elbow according to Ian Rapoport of

Stafford had a procedure this offseason that Rapoport described as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.  "My understanding, this elbow issue, which actually cropped up in the spring, is described to me as bad tendinitis," Rapoport said. "It is a tendon issue in his throwing elbow. [He] had a little of a procedure -- not a surgery, but a procedure -- more of a PRP-type deal in the offseason to try to manage it. Did not get to a place where he really needs it to be. I think long-term, everyone in L.A. thinks this is going to be fine. I don't sense any stress about it, but it's a quarterback. It's a throwing arm. Obviously, something we need to monitor going forward."

 Stafford also wore a brace briefly to limit his range of motion while healing and did not throw during offseason workouts.  The fact that the issue has carried over into training camp has to be a concern despite the coaching staff minimizing the problem.

Backup QB John Wolford will handle the starting reps in Stafford's absence.
