Rams training camp: Where's Leonard Little?

Training camp hasn't even been in session for a week and the mostly good vibes surround the St. Louis Rams.

Think about it. Their rookie QB proclaims loudly and proudly that the offense can be "very good" and publicly establishes high expectations and accountability. Steven Jackson feels good, Ron Bartell dodges a bullet and even Jason Smith's is turning up in team drills again

But there's one name missing from the mix: Leonard Little. One of the biggest concerns for a Rams defense that has the possibility to be a solid, but not impenetrable wall, is the lack of a consistent four-pronged pass rush from the front four. Yes, Chris Long looks to have emerged, but will he be as effective without more effective parts in the middle and on the other end? The balance on defense is delicate, or seems to be on paper, and a poor pass rush could be the thing that breaks it wide open. So where's Leonard Little?

Little's physical location is irrelevant, because it's not at Rams Park. As of last week, the Rams had not "ruled him out." That's not the strongest endorsement. 

Is the coaching staff satisfied with the roster they have now? It seemed incredulous that the Rams were going into the season with the receivers they had too, but the administration has really stood by their guys at that spot. Spagnuolo plays the platoons up front with ends working at tackle and oodles of blitz packages. Is that enough?
