Random Ramsdom: Scrimmage On The Horizon

USA TODAY Sports

The Rams are past the pleasantries of the start of camp, and into the nitty gritty of preparing for the team scrimmage on Saturday. The position battles are well underway, and some players are already beginning to standout.

The Rams held their first padded practice Monday and all reports point to some positive signs for all most every group. There seem to be a couple surprise standouts at almost every position. But, where one stands out another must step up.

The offensive line quickly became a concern after reports of the defensive lines success this week in practice. However, it is not uncommon to see one group be ahead of another at the beginning of the year. After all, this is a group that performed admirally last year and has since upgraded it's talent, right? Rams fans sure hope so. If Sam Bradford can't be protected again this year the Rams plans will be in deep despair.

On to the news...

Rams injury updates

I mentioned in my article yesterday that Cory Harkey was standing out with the first team. Is it out of the question that he could be in a position to make a move on Kendricks position? I think the idea still seems a little far-fetched, but with Kendricks on the sidelines it's anyone's game. Harkey seems to be making the most of his opportunity so far.

Rams wearing throwbacks twice this year

You know what's better than the Rams wearing throwbacks twice this year? You guessed it, it would be better if they never took them off. Rams fans continue to clamor for throwback uniforms (possibly even some white and blues), yet what we keep hearing from Rams brass is that they are still a few years away from any uniform changes.

Harvin to have surgery

While it is very poor taste to celebrate a players injury, Rams fans can breath sigh of relief knowing Harvin may not be on the field when the play the Seahawks at least once this season. Harvin is an electrifying player that immediately boosted the Seahawks passing corp when he was acquired. However, he has been battling a hip injury that loos to have taken a turn for the worse.

Rams put down a few injured players

Neither player had a strong shot at making the team, and few probably even recognize the names. This is a reminder that one of the most difficult parts of camp is on the horizon.

Saffold adjusts to life on the right side

He better start adjusting quicker if he doesn't want Chris Long to continue to eat his lunch in practice. In all seriousness, Roger Saffold is an important part of the line this year. Fans will hope that he sees this as a career opportunity to cement himself as a top NFL tackle. So far, he has been having a rough time in practice against the Rams elite defensive line.
