Stafford dropped back to pass on third-and-seven, but he was taken down by Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle D.J. Reader. The Rams QB had his left ankle caught up under Reader during the tackle.
Stafford then got medical treatment on the sideline, where they wrapped his left ankle with heavy tape.
It doesn't seem like the ailment will prevent Stafford from playing down the stretch, but it could impact the gunslinger's performace. Jonathan Wofford would be the next man up at QB if Stafford is forced to the sideline.
