Rams QB Jared Goff has surgery; John Wolford will start vs. Cardinals

A few times this season, Rams coaches probably imagined starting John Wolford at quarterback in the final game of the regular season. If so, they envisioned playing the backup to save Jared Goff from the risk of injury after clinching a division championship and a high seed for the playoffs. As it turns out, Wolford will be the Rams’ quarterback against the Arizona Cardinals in their regular-season finale on Sunday at SoFi Stadium, but under much different and more difficult circumstances. Goff ...

Marijuana: 4 things to watch for in California in 2021

Making predictions about California’s marijuana industry was a challenge even before a global pandemic changed everything. It’s not just that the legal cannabis market, which launched three years ago in California, is so new. It’s also the singularity of an industry in which licensed, legal operators still compete against a much larger illicit market, even as the industry’s core consumer product — which is medicine for some people — remains illegal at the federal level. Some of the trends that w...

Alex Caruso becomes first Laker to miss a regular-season game due to COVID-19 protocols

LOS ANGELES — Lakers guard Alex Caruso is missing Monday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers, becoming the first player on the team to sit out a game due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols. Coach Frank Vogel announced Caruso’s absence hours before tip-off. It is unclear exactly which circumstances of the 135-plus page protocols required Caruso to sit out, but Vogel said he couldn’t elaborate.

Conditions at LA County hospitals, already dire, likely to worsen

Overcrowded ICUs. Ambulances turned away. Creaky pipes struggling to deliver oxygen. Hospital beds in gift shops. Mobile morgues housing the ultimate victims of the coronavirus. The once-unthinkable has become an undeniable truth: Los Angeles County is facing death on a scale for which even the best medical training could not prepare you. “We are seeing death in a completely different light,” said Lindsey Baker, an intensive-care unit nurse at Torrance’s Providence Little Company of Mary Medical...

Announcement appears imminent on whether Rose Bowl trademark will be used for Jan. 1 game in Texas

Rose Bowl organizers say an announcement is imminent on whether the actual name of Pasadena’s traditional game will be used in light of COVID-19 forcing it out of state for the first time in nearly 80 years. The issue has hung in the balance since the state gave a final “no” verdict earlier this month to the game being played with fans in the 95,000-seat Pasadena Rose Bowl with limited fans in attendance.

Boxing Day was a complete abomination with Canada destroying Germany 16-2, followed by the US beating Austria 11-0. Both games featured the winning squad scoring more ...

Chargers creating momentum for next season with winning streak

A vivid memory from the Chargers’ difficult 2020 season came in Week 8 when rookie linebacker Kenneth Murray sat in disbelief with his hands covering his face after the Chargers blew a 21-point lead to the Denver Broncos and lost on the final play. Broncos quarterback Drew Lock had another opportunity to deliver the Chargers some pain on Sunday when he heaved a Hail Mary pass near midfield with one second left in regulation. But there was no agony, only relief for the Chargers after wide receive...
