The Los Angeles Rams kept their quarterback situation under wraps for the bulk of the week, but moments before kickoff of their Super Wild-Card Weekend matchup with the Seattle Seahawks it was revealed that John Wolford would start.,As Wolford tried to go down head-first on the rushing attempt, Adams' shoulder made direct and hard contact with the top of the quarterback's helmet.,Right as Wolford took the hit, Goff began warming up, came in for two plays -- one of which was a seven-yard sack -- before the club made way for Matt Gay to hit a 40-yard field goal to cap off the 12-play drive.,McVay had noted that Goff was throwing the ball well in practice this week, but the club still gave Wolford the bulk of the starting reps. That seems to be due to the lack of confidence in Goff's effectiveness throwing the ball due to that injured right thumb, which was on full display during Los Angeles' following offensive possession where the veteran quarterback failed to complete a pass as the offense went three-and-out.,The broadcast noted that punter Johnny Hekker is the current in-game backup for Goff with Wolford out.
