Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff underwent surgery on his broken thumb on Monday and is unlikely to play against the Cardinals on Sunday.
Goff could reportedly return to the field in two weeks if Los Angeles reaches the playoffs. John Wolford is expected to start for the Rams on Sunday. Wolford has never thrown an NFL pass, though he did toss 59 touchdowns in four seasons at Wake Forest from 2014-17. Los Angeles enters Week 17 seeking its third playoff appearance in the last four seasons. They could reach the postseason with either a win on Sunday or a Packers win over the Bears.
The Rams will face Arizona at 4:25 ET on Sunday, the same time as Green Bay’s matchup with Chicago.
