Summary List PlacementLos Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford left Saturday’s Wild Card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks and was taken to the hospital.
In the first quarter, Wolford ran with the ball. As he dove to the ground, his head hit Seahawks safety Jamal Adams’ shoulder and turned awkwardly.
Wolford was responsive, but replays appeared to show him in pain as the Rams medical staff checked him out. He left the game under his own power and ran to the locker room.

An alternate angle of Wolford running to the locker room also appeared to show him in discomfort.
Watch til the end of this video, it seems like Wolford’s limbs started to feel funny when he was walking into the locker room. Hope they’re just taking precautions by taking him to the hospital. Scary sight 🙏🏼 https://t.co/osQHHocTPx pic.twitter.com/wmZJ5Whll0 — greg (@LifeOfDoughboy) January 9, 2021
Wolford was starting in place of Jared Goff, who underwent surgery on his thumb less than two weeks ago. Goff was inserted into the game after Wolford’s injury.
Through much of the first half, there was no update on Wolford. However, Associated Press photographer Ted Warren took a photo of Wolford being taken away in an ambulance. The Rams later announced it was precautionary.
Wolford reportedly walked to the ambulance on his own.
It was Wolford’s first playoff appearance and second career start.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: 3 ways to spruce up your sandals for under $25
