THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — “Good” was the word at the Los Angeles Rams‘ practice facility Thursday when quarterback Jared Goff spoke with reporters for the first time since undergoing surgery on his throwing-hand thumb on Dec. 28.

“It feels good,” Goff said. “It’s progressing well, it’s in a good place.”

It remains uncertain, however, whether Goff will start Saturday when the Rams (10-6) play the Seattle Seahawks (12-4) in a wild-card NFL playoff game at Lumen Field.

Earlier in the week, Rams coach Sean McVay said he would not announce a starter before kickoff, and on Thursday, after the team’s final practice of the week, he stuck to his word.

“We are going to work through that,” McVay said, “and we’ll see on Saturday.”

Said Goff: “I’m in the mindset that if I have to play at any point, then I’m ready to play and just continuing to progress well.”
