Rams head coach Sean McVay announced Monday night that quarterback Jared Goff underwent surgery to repair a broken right thumb sustained in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks and will be out for this week's game against the Cardinals.
McVay said Goff's surgery took place Monday morning and went well, with Goff getting "some screws put in."
"He actually should be available, if we're able to handle business, for the playoffs. Which is pretty amazing," McVay said during a video conference with reporters.
Goff sustained the thumb injury in the final seconds of the third quarter after his right (throwing) hand hit Seahawks defensive end Benson Mayowa's helmet as he followed through on a pass attempt. Goff later popped his thumb back into place and managed to finish the game.
John Wolford will start against the Cardinals on Sunday in Goff's place.
