John Wolford is confident he can step up for Rams at quarterback

#With a critical #Week 17 matchup against the #Arizona #Cardinals this #Sunday, the #Los #Angeles #Rams have been forced to turn to a quarterback with zero career regular season snaps.

#John #Wolford will get the starting nod for the #Rams this weekend after #Jared #Goff had to have surgery on his broken thumb on #Monday. #Wolford has played in preseason games for the #Rams and #New #York #Jets and was the starting quarterback for the #Arizona #Hotshots of the #Alliance of #American #Football in 2019, but #Sunday will be a different experience altogether.

#But #Wolford is confident he’s ready for the challenge and believes he can rise to the occasion.

“It’s been a fun journey getting to this point,” #Wolford said, via #Greg #Beacham of the #Associated #Press. “It’s a lot of hard work, and I’m confident in the time I’ve spent that has gotten me here. I’m confident in my capabilities as a player. I know I can spin it. I know how to make the throws, and then mentally it’s about making the right decisions.”

#As a senior at #Wake #Forest in 2017, #Wolford threw for 3,192 yards with 29 touchdowns and just six interceptions. #He went undrafted and was signed by the #Jets as a free agent. #He appeared in four preseason games in 2018, going 8-for-20 for 89 yards with an interception. #After his stint in the AAF, he signed with the #Rams and completed 25-of-44 passes for 249 yards with three touchdowns in the 2019 preseason for #Los #Angeles.

#As the #Hotshots starter in the AAF, #Wolford completed 130-of-206 passes for 1,617 yard with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions in eight games played.

The #Rams need a win to against #Arizona to clinch a playoff spot or they’ll need help from the #Green #Bay #Packers in beating the #Chicago #Bears to earn their way into the playoffs. #Wolford may have to accomplish the task without #Cooper #Kupp, #Darrell #Henderson or #Cam #Akers as well due to COVID-19 issues and injuries on offense.

“I’m just going to put my head down and work to the best of my ability,” #Wolford said. “Whatever happens, I’ll be able to sleep at night. I’m just looking forward to the opportunity.”
