Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay is uncertain whether Jared Goff will be able to play on Wild Card Weekend.
The Rams beat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday to clinch a spot in the postseason. After the game, McVay weighed in on Goff’s status, and cast doubt on the quarterback’s availability for the Rams’ game at Seattle.
A playoff return for Goff seemed possible when he underwent thumb surgery this week. It certainly still could be, as McVay could simply be engaging in some gamesmanship here. It’s simply too soon to tell.
John Wolford would get the nod if Goff can’t go for the Wild Card round. Wolford went 22-of-38 for 231 yards and an interception in his Week 17 debut.
