Less than two weeks after surgery for a fractured and dislocated thumb, Los Angeles Rams Quarterback Jared Goff He will be active for Saturday’s wild game vs. Seattle Seahawks. However, coach Sean McVeigh confirmed this Jay Glazer from Fox Sports That Goff will be a backup for John Wolford on Saturday as the Year Two player gets a nod in the opening match.
McVay was shy about his QB status in the week before the NFC West supplement fight on Saturday. Joff is officially back into practice, and has participated in a limited, but, like, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network According to reports, it was Wolford who saw most of the first team representatives. The coaching staff prepared it for the start of this week, which seemed to be an internal indication that things were going this way for Jawf.
While McVeigh noted that Gove threw brilliantly into practice, the question of his in-game effectiveness due to restoring the right thumb is still a concern for the staff and why he would be active on an emergency basis for this competition.
Wolford, who had not thrown an NFL pass before Week 17, started a hollow spot against the Cardinals at the end of the regular season. The former Uncut Wake Forest producer went 22 out of 38 for 231 yards and one interception, plus 56 flowing yards, in a victory for the Rams to help reach beyond the season.
If history is any indication, it may not be the best news for the Rams, who will rise against the Seahawks appearing to be rising in precisely the right time under veteran Russell Wilson. Since 2002, midfielders who make their first playoff start (like Wolford) against midfielders who are not (like Wilson) are 15-31. For Wolford to advance to the Division Round, he will have to challenge a bit of NFL history.
