At the beginning of the new season, Goff served as team’s No.3 quarterback but didn’t enter the lineup of the season opener game, which 0-28 lost to San Francisco 49ers. However, the team coach Jeff Fisher had said that he might consider rotating positions between Goff and the original backup quarterback Sean Mannion.

“He was really excited about this,” Fisher said in talking about Goff. “He is ready to play if anything happens. Just a step away from the foot on the track let him excited.”

Fisher has not decided whether let Goff and Mannion to take turns serving as backup quarterback.

Goff, Rams signed to at great cost, had a poor performance in the preseason. He completed passes with 22 out 49, and four turnovers to lost the ball, advancing only 4.7 yards per pass attempt. He trained with starting lineup for a long time in Friday’s training.

Fisher has not planned to replace the starting quarterback now, so Goff has to accept a bench role. But ultimately that is progress.
