Shark Bites

Rams QB Jared Goff had surgery Monday on his broken and dislocated right thumb, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That almost definitely means he'll miss Sunday's regular-season finale against Arizona, but Goff hopes to be back for the playoffs -- if his team gets in. John Wolford will start in his place Sunday. He's basically an unknown with no NFL snaps behind him. Downgrade Rams pass-catchers for Week 17.

Recent Shark Bites

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is told that there will be an "open competition" this offseason between Rams QBs Jared Goff and John Wolford. Goff has been far too inconsistent from game to game in 4 seasons under Sean McVay -- but it'd frankly be a major surprise if he lost a battle to Wolford, a former undrafted free agent who didn't even complete 60% of his passes at Wake Forest. The takeaway here, though, is that Goff is on thin ice in Los Angeles. We'll see if the Rams add any additional competition this offseason.

Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) was a full-go in Tuesday's practice, while QB John Wolford (stinger) was sidelined. HC Sean McVay wouldn't say who will start vs. the Packers on Saturday, but it's seemingly trending toward Goff. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) is active for today's game against the Seahawks. "No word yet on if he's starting or if he's the emergency QB," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted. We'll see whether Goff's actually starting this game or if it's John Wolford. You shouldn't be using him in fantasy either way.

Rams QB John Wolford "took the majority of snaps" in practice this week and is "prepared to start," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jared Goff reportedly threw well this week despite his injured thumb and is "pushing to play." HC Sean McVay has yet to decide which guy will start, per Rapoport. We'll see about this situation on Saturday.

Rams QB Jared Goff (thumb) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game vs. the Seahawks after a limited week of practice. HC Sean McVay has been non-committal on Goff's status, but The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue notes that Goff had "good velocity" on short- and medium-range passes on Thursday. Goff said afterward that he's "progressing well." It seems like he has a legitimate chance to start this weekend. We'll find out for sure around 3 pm ET on Saturday.
