Los Angeles Ramez Quarterback Jared Goff He expressed uncertainty whether he will be able to play in the team’s regular season final after suffering a thumb injury on Sunday in a 20-9 loss at the Seattle Seahawks.
Sources told ESPN’s Adam Shifter that the Rams are afraid to fracture Juve’s thumb and that he will undergo more testing in Los Angeles on Monday.
“I’m not sure,” Goff said when asked if he would be able to play next Sunday at home versus the Arizona Cardinals. “We’ll see.”
Ramez coach Sean McVeigh added, “I’m not sure right now. I don’t want to speculate.”
With a lopsided defeat on Sunday, Ramez (9-6) lost two consecutive games for the first time this season, but could decide a playoff game by either beating the Cardinal (8-7) or winning the Green Bay Packers in Chicago. Bears (7-8) at week 17.
John Wolford, Undone 2018 free agent from Wake Forest, is the Rams reserve midfielder. Wolford never appeared in the NFL regular season match.
Goof injured his thumb in the final seconds of the third quarter as he completed a 9-yard pass for a court finish Gerald Everett. As he followed through with this throw, Goof’s right hand collided with the Seahawks’ defensive limb helmet Benson Maywa.
“He put it back in place, and I’m just done with the game,” Goff said.
During his post-match video conference with reporters, Jove played down the impact of the injury and said his thumb was “not terrible”.
He also said his thumb didn’t bother him on his throws, as Gauve completed 6 of 14 passes for 74 yards after he was injured.
“He was tough and daring and kept fighting for his team-mates,” said McVeigh, who expressed his frustration with his playing that led to the loss.
Goof completed 24 of 43 passes for 234 yards with an interception at loss.
In the second quarter, Goof delivered a pass that was intended for the wide receiver Robert WoodsBut Woods wasn’t anywhere near by Seahawks Quander Digges Picked it up. Seahawks switched takeaways into a 49-yard field goal to tie the match 6-6.
“I did one of what I think was one of the worst plays in my career at the start of the first half when I threw this objection at Digges,” Goff said. “I was trying to be nice to something but it just didn’t work for me and they did a great play.”
It was Juve’s 23rd match with a turnover since the start of the 2019 season, the most in the NFL.
The Rams have failed to score an attack landing for only the fifth time since McVay took over his coaching in 2017, including Super Bowl LIII.
