Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay confirmed quarterback Matthew Stafford is fully healthy and will have a full offseason workload ahead of the 2023 season.

"There will be no limitations. He'll be ready to roll," McVay said, according to Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network.

McVay added he sees a "renewed sense of urgency" from Stafford and other players who were injured last season, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

After leading the Rams to a Super Bowl title in 2021, Stafford took a step back last season due to a variety of reasons, including injuries.

Stafford suffered a spinal cord contusion that landed him on injured reserve in early December. He threw for 2,087 yards with 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions in nine games, compiling a 3-6 record.

The 35-year-old Stafford signed a four-year, $160-million contract extension in March 2022.

Wide receiver Cooper Kupp played in nine games last season due to injuries and was the only Rams receiver to amass at least 400 receiving yards.

The Rams have interest in bringing back wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., McVay said, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. He added there are a lot of other teams interested, and they'll see how it plays out.

Beckham was with the Rams in 2021 for eight games, totaling 305 yards with five scores. He found the end zone in the Rams' Super Bowl victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
