Report: Rams QB Goff has broken right thumb
With their playoff chances still up in the air, the Los Angeles Rams could be without quarterback Jared Goff for the Week 17 season finale because of a broken right thumb, NFL Network reported.
Goff, 26, smashed his thumb into the helmet of Seattle Seahawks defensive end Benson Mayowa on a third-quarter pass attempt. According to the report, Goff also dislocated his thumb on the play.
Goff remained in the game but was unable to rally the Rams to a victory as Los Angeles fell 20-9 to the Seahawks. He was 24 of 43 for 234 yards with one interception and did not have a touchdown pass for the fourth time this season. He did not throw a TD pass in two games against the Seahawks this season.
It was the second consecutive week the Rams could have clinched a playoff spot with a victory, but they fell to the winless New York Jets in Week 15 before losing to the Seahawks on Sunday.
The Rams will conduct more tests on Goff’s thumb this week before determining if he will play in the regular-season finale at home against the Arizona Cardinals. John Wolford is the Rams’ backup quarterback, but he has not taken a snap in the NFL.
