Random Ramsdom, 8/18: Receivers doing it for themselves

Danny Amendola continued his strong training camp yesterday.

Fortune smiled on the St. Louis Rams yesterday, as injured players returned to practice. Spanguolo's crew rewarded the fates with a spirited practice. Let's jump in...

All eyes might have been on the offensive line, but the receivers put on their own show yesterday. Lots of highlight reel catches, and not just because of highlight reel throws from Sam Bradford. The tight ends, including Daniel Fells, who was hardly noticeable in Saturday's game, and rookie Fendi Onobun got in on the action too. 

Receiver Jordan Kent worked on his kicking skills as well as his receiving skills in what is turning into a tough position for the coaches to make final roster decisions as they cut down from 10 to 5 or 6 players. 

S David Roach was cut in favor of rookie S Brett Johnson. Johnson might make an impact on special teams this year, where he spent significant time at Cal before getting more starting work as a junior and senior. He's pure raw athleticism at this point, per this report at Buffalo Rumblings:

Despite his uphill climb, Johnson's tremendous athleticism - we're talking 4.3-second 40-yard dash, 42.5-inch vertical jump and 10'9" broad jump athleticism - makes him one of the team's most intriguing UDFA signings this year. But he's definitely more athlete than football player at this point in time.

Larry Grant gets some much deserved ink for his inspired play. With David Vobora as the Rams 4th LB, the Rams look like they have a pretty strong crew at that position.
