John Wolford, QB (LAR)

Status hinges on pregame warmup

Wolford (neck), who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Raiders, will go through a pregame warmup before the Rams decide on whether he'll start the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Rams will release their inactive list 90 minutes ahead of the 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, but even if Wolford isn't included on the list, he may not be guaranteed to make his second consecutive start like the team planned. If Wolford's sore neck doesn't respond as well to warmups as hoped, the Rams could still keep him available as an emergency backup, in which case new acquisition Baker Mayfield would likely step in to start in his L.A. debut. Despite being claimed off waivers from the Panthers on Tuesday and not arriving in Los Angeles until later that day, Mayfield is already up to speed with the Rams' game plan after practicing Wednesday, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The Rams also have Bryce Perkins on hand as another option at quarterback, but both Wolford and Mayfield look to be ahead of him on the depth chart.

Plans to be back for OTAs

Stafford (neck) said Monday that he expects to avoid surgery to address his spinal cord contusion and plans to be a full participant for OTAs in April, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports. "I had obviously the thumb a couple years ago, and then elbow stuff that I wasn't able to really participate in a whole lot of stuff when it comes to throwing the football for a long time," Stafford said. "So to be able to do that at a way more regular pace, which is exciting for me as a player, that's what I want to do. I want to be out there, I want to be able to throw and be a part of the team."
