Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said Sunday that quarterback Matthew Stafford will have “no limitations” for Thursday’s season opener against the Buffalo Bills, according to team reporter Stu Jackson.

“He’ll be ready to go,” McVay said.

The 36-year-old coach added he’ll have “no hesitation” asking Stafford to throw 50-plus times versus Buffalo.

Stafford didn’t throw at OTAs after receiving an anti-inflammatory injection in his right elbow earlier in the offseason. Reports later noted that “bad tendinitis” also limited his throwing during training camp.

But the 34-year-old passer said he’s fully healthy again.

“I feel good. Ready to go, no hesitations. … I feel like I can make every throw,” he said Sunday, per NFL Network’s Kayla Burton.

Stafford completed 67.2% of his passes for 4,886 yards and 41 touchdowns against 17 interceptions across 17 regular-season appearances in his first year with the Rams in 2021. He averaged 35 pass attempts per game, including the playoffs.

The one-time Pro Bowler helped the Rams win the Super Bowl after joining in a trade from the Detroit Lions.
