Jared Goff active for Rams less than 2 weeks after surgery


SEATTLE (AP)Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is active for Saturday’s NFC wild-card matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

Goff suffered a right thumb injury in Week 16 against the Seahawks and underwent surgery. Goff returned to practice this week, but Rams coach Sean McVay has not said whether it would be Goff or John Wolford that starts.

Third-string quarterback Blake Bortles was inactive for the Rams.

Seattle was without backup running back Rashaad Penny, but defensive tackle Jarran Reed (oblique) and cornerback Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) were both active after being listed as questionable.


Rams: QB Blake Bortles, WR Trishton Jackson, TE Brycen Hopkins, OL Brian Allen, OL Tremayne Anchrum.

Seahawks: RB Rashaad Penny, RB DeeJay Dallas, TE Colby Parkinson, TE Luke Willson, CB Linden Stephens, T Chad Wheeler.
