Rams QB John Wolford Had His Finger Nail Ripped Off During Joint Practice With Bengals

A brawl at Rams-Bengals joint practice has dominated the news today, but it wasn’t the only thing that happened today.

The Rams’ competition at backup quarterback just got a little bit more interesting after Sean McVay told reporters after practice that John Wolford didn’t participate against the Bengals because, during Wednesday’s session, he suffered an injury to the thumbnail on his throwing hand.

The veteran backup had a fingernail ripped off on his throwing hand during Wednesday’s practice.

The former Wake Forest quarterback notched three game appearances during the Rams’ Super Bowl-winning season in 2021.


He made his preseason debut during a matchup against the Texans last Friday as he tossed for 142 yards on 14/22 passing.
