Jared Goff Questionable Saturday vs. Seahawks
No real surprise here. Goff was officially listed as questionable on the Rams’ injury report for their first-round matchup vs. the Seahawks. He’s been limited at practice on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and the Rams have played this situation pretty close to the vest. Head coach Sean McVay said earlier this week that Goff was a long shot to return vs. the Seahawks, but he has also said that Goff is “preparing himself to play”. They don’t want to let the Seahawks know who will be under center on Saturday, so we probably won’t have clarity on this situation until just before kickoff. If Goff is unable to suit up, John Wolford will make just the second start of his NFL career.
Whoever is under center will face a challenge from Seattle, who has improved massively on defense since the start of the season. They’ve allowed 23 points or fewer in each of their past eight games, and they’ve allowed an average of just 16.0 points per game over that time frame.
The one positive for the Rams is that Andrew Whitworth was officially activated off injured reserve. He’s been out of the lineup since Week 10, but Whitworth owns the fourth-highest grade at offensive tackle per Pro Football Focus.
The Rams are currently listed as 3.5-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook, while the total sits at 42.5 points.
