The Los Angeles Rams have listed quarterback Jared Goff as questionable on the final injury report. Goff was a limited participant in every practice this week. If he is unable to play, John Wolford would be the presumed starter, with Blake Bortles as his backup. Sean McVay hasn’t ruled out the idea of Goff and Wolford splitting reps.
Will Goff or Wolford start? That might not be answered until Saturday morning. I have been wondering to myself: What is the lowest percentage of throws that Goff could still make with his injured thumb that McVay would be comfortable to put him out there? What if he was at 70%? Would he need to be over 80%?
I still think the Rams would be better off with Goff this Saturday. Too much of what they are trained to do is predicated around Goff’s abilities and he’s the quarterback who they are most comfortable with. I believe that even if the quarterback position itself was played better by Wolford, the other positions all suffered on Sunday with him as the starter, as strange as that seems. Adapting the offense to a quarterback like Wolford, would take much more time than a couple of weeks.
Also questionable are left guard David Edwards and linebacker Micah Kiser. Cam Akers and Joseph Noteboom were not given an injury designation, so they are good to go. Obviously it seems that if Edwards is out, Noteboom would return to left guard, which is not a spot he was playing as well at as he has at left tackle.
