It was a somewhat quiet practice today (that's a GOOD thing!), as the Rams gear up for Sunday night football action against the Seattle Seahawks. Win, and they win the division, and host a playoff game. Lose, and well, you know.
Even though practice was quiet, there was an exciting moment... Uh Oh practiced today in a limited role with the rest of the team, and the Rams are in hopes he will see action Sunday.
Coach Spagnuolo stated, "I just saw a few plays here and there," and also said, "But Reggie (Scott) felt like when he had him alone (Wednesday) that he was ready to get back into practice. Now we've just got to see how it reacts after he gets off the field."
So in other words, will his ankle swell or cause him any trouble after his reps? Only time will tell. If all goes well tomorrow, I would certainly expect Illinois Mike to play Sunday. That would be an incredible boost to the team.
In other news, the Rams held their entire practice outside today in preparation for the atmosphere Sunday night, Qwest Field, which is an outdoor venue.
Wednesday the Rams did spend half of the day outside, where as today, the entire day. They also practiced on both grass and Turf.
Coach Spagnuolo seemed very optimistic about playing on the FieldTurf and stated, "It's nice to have that turf field, that's worked out real good,".
