THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay has no intention of revealing before kickoff whether Jared Goff or John Wolford will start at quarterback in Saturday’s wild-card playoff game at the Seattle Seahawks.
“I’m not gonna make an announcement on who is starting and who is not,” McVay said tersely during a videoconference with reporters on Tuesday. “I’m not going to answer that question this week.”
McVay did say he anticipates wide receiver Cooper Kupp and defensive lineman Michael Brockers to be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Saturday and that there’s a good chance left tackle Andrew Whitworth — who tore his MCL and posterior cruciate ligament in Week 10 — will be activated from injured reserve.
As the Rams prepare for their third playoff appearance in four seasons, Goff is continuing to recover from surgery on his throwing-hand thumb that he underwent a day after a Week 16 loss to the division-champion Seahawks at Lumen Field.
