Rams’ quarterback Jared Goff broke his thumb during last night’s loss to the Seahawks, and he underwent surgery to repair it this morning. That leaves back up John Wolford to start next week in the biggest game of the season.
Jared Goff was abysmal in last night’s loss, but Rams fans certainly would rather have him play this Sunday against the Cardinals than Wolford. Their one hope for victory is that Cardinals’ quarterback Kyler Murray is also dealing with a “lower leg” injury, according to Kliff Kingsbury.

It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to realize that the Rams have to turn to their backup now. Even if you have no horse in this race, it always stinks to watch a team’s best players miss their biggest game of the season.
Rams’ head coach Sean McVay will have his hands full.
