Rams quarterback Jared Goff left in the fourth quarter after suffering a concussion and did not return in Thursday night's 24-3 loss against the Seahawks.

Goff took a huge hit from cornerback Richard Sherman while scrambling along the sideline. After the game, Rams interim head coach John Fassel said Goff was placed in concussion protocol.

"He will be OK but it's probably not going to happen again," Fassel said before adding that Goff needs to learn to run out of bounds. "He seemed OK, but he's maybe tough enough to disguise (his condition)."

After the game, Sherman talked about the hit on NFL Network's TNF Postgame, saying that he felt Goff was showing "a little disrespect in his running style, he was acting like he was getting a freebie to end zone."

Case Keenum took over at quarterback in the middle of the fourth quarter and finished the rest of the game.

Goff completed 13 of 25 passes for 135 yards before leaving.
