THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — He’s never played a snap in the NFL, but quarterback John Wolford will be depended on to lead the Los Angeles Rams to a playoff berth after starter Jared Goff underwent surgery on his right thumb and will be sidelined at least a week.

In the midst of their first two-game losing streak this season, the Rams (9-6) can still clinch a playoff spot in Week 17 with either a victory over the Arizona Cardinals (8-7) (4:25 p.m. Sunday, Fox) or a Green Bay Packers win at the Chicago Bears (8-7).

McVay expects Goff to return for a playoff run, but in the meantime, the Rams need the mobile 6-foot-1, 200-pound Wolford — who easily could be mistaken for head coach Sean McVay’s kid brother — to step up in his first NFL appearance.
