Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) active vs. Seahawks

Jared Goff will be available to play in the Rams’ wild-card showdown.

The quarterback is active for Los Angeles’ playoff meeting with the Seattle Seahawks, according to the team’s official inactives list (which does not include Goff, of course). NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported it’s not yet clear if Goff will start or be the emergency QB.

Goff’s status was uncertain for much of the week, with a thumb injury suffered in Week 16 and surgically repaired shortly thereafter making a quick turnaround possible, but not guaranteed. Though he was able to throw a week after his injury, forecast conditions didn’t seem to play in his favor if he were to play through lingering pain.

We’re uncertain whether he’ll play, but he’ll at least be dressed and ready to do so. If not, it’ll be John Wolford, who did enough to get the Rams past the Cardinals last week and into the playoffs. NFL Network’s Omar Ruiz reported Goff demonstrated nice velocity while warming up with a small bandage on his hand before Saturday’s kickoff, as offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell and pass game coordinator Shane Waldron watched on.
