Despite Stafford dealing with elbow tendinitis through the entirety of training camp,

he's scheduled to start the season opener on Monday.

The Rams quarterback told reporters he felt good a day after a scrimmage where he participated in full.

For the past month, the team has been closely monitoring his workload.

Stafford is happy with the work that he was able to achieve as well as his lack of fatigue.

Stafford indicated that the injury should not impact his performance on the field,

but he is unsure how long the pain will take to go away for good.

Matt Stafford threw over 75 balls at his practice on Tuesday,

and Rams coach Sean McVay has said that he is not concerned about his arm.

Said McVay: "He looks like Matt Stafford ."

The Rams and their fans are looking forward to September 8 

when the defending champions play their first game against the Buffalo Bills.
