Matthew Stafford is now 34 years old; he wasn't bound to stay healthy forever. The veteran NFL quarterback reportedly underwent an offseason procedure to help fix some issues with his elbow. 

Matthew Stafford underwent an offseason elbow procedure to fix elbow pain he dealt with during the 2021 season. The good news is the veteran will be good to go for tonight's NFL season opener between the Rams and Bills. 

Stafford also reportedly feels "better" now than he did last year. We could see an even better season performance from the veteran quarterback this upcoming season. 

"Rams QB Matthew Stafford underwent an off-season elbow procedure to deal with the pain he experienced last season and to help prepare for this season, per sources. Despite the questions about his elbow, Stafford is now said to feel better today than he did at this time last year," said ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Even while dealing with elbow pain, Matthew Stafford completed 67.2 percent of his throws for 4,886 yards and 41 touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season. Now healthier, he could be even better in 2022. 

The Rams host the Bills in the NFL season opener tonight at 8:20 p.m. ET. Football is back.
