Will the Rams turn to John Wolford vs Cardinals?

LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff was shown popping his thumb back into place during Sunday’s 20-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and after the game it was confirmed that the thumb is broken. Goff was able to finish the rest of the game but said he was not sure if his status for next week’s regular season finale against the Arizona Cardinals would be impacted by the injury.

Goff went 24 of 43 for 234 yards and one of the ugliest interceptions of his career. He broke his thumb when his hand was moving forward on a pass and it hit the helmet of Seahawks pass rusher Benson Mayowa. Goff was sacked three times and under constant duress.

The Rams have lost two straight and are now in danger of missing the playoffs if they do not beat the Cardinals in Week 17. That would also require the Chicago Bears beating the Green Bay Packers, which would be considered a significant upset but far from impossible. If Goff is unable to start, John Wolford is next in line.
