Jared Goff (shoulder) OK, likely to get first-team reps

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Rams quarterback Jared Goff went to the bench a bit earlier than expected against the Cowboys on Saturday night because of a sore left shoulder, but coach Jeff Fisher said it was a minor issue after the game.

Fisher reiterated that diagnosis on Sunday, saying there are “no concerns whatsoever” and that Goff will be practicing all week despite being “banged up and sore.”

Assuming all goes well during the practice week, Fisher also hinted at Goff seeing time with the first team when the Chiefs pay a visit to Los Angeles.

“I’d like to get Jared some snaps with the ones at some point, and it quite likely would be this week against Kansas City,” Fisher said, via ESPN.com.

Fantasy Impact: 

Goff was 4-of-9 for 38 yards and an interception in his first taste of NFL game action while starter Case Keenum was 6-of-7 for 58 yards to open the game. If Goff puts together a better showing in a taste of life with the first team, he probably won’t be waiting too long before he gets another look in his eventual starting role, the story said.
