Jared Goff active for LA Rams less than 2 weeks after surgery

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is active for Saturday’s NFC wild-card matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

Goff suffered a right thumb injury in Week 16 against the Seahawks and underwent surgery. Goff returned to practice this week, but Rams coach Sean McVay has not said whether it would be Goff or John Wolford that starts.

Just before the game, FOX Sports reported that Wolford would start the game.

Third-string quarterback Blake Bortles was inactive for the Rams.
