John Wolford got the start for the Rams on Saturday. Jared Goff might have to finish.
Midway through L.A.’s second possession of the game, Wolford took a blow to the head from Seahawks safety Jamal Adams following a scramble and soon headed to the locker room. He is questionable to return with a neck injury.
That prompted the insertion of Goff, who didn’t start after furiously rehabbing his surgically-repaired thumb. He and Wolford are the Rams’ only two active quarterbacks.
Goff’s first series included just one play, a sack, yet resulted in a field goal for the game’s first points. His tender thumb in the cold Seattle air is expected to present its challenges for Goff, who fractured his throwing thumb in the same building less than two weeks ago. The Rams lost that game to Seattle, which saw their franchise QB struggle before his thumb collided with the helmet of a Seahawks defender.
He subsequently sat out the team’s playoff-clinching victory against the Cardinals last week, his first missed start since 2017.
