If you followed the tweets from fans at training camp on Tuesday you noticed a series of brief, 140-character descriptions of Brian Quick beautifully catching a pass. It was not all highlight reel work for the St. Louis Rams second-round pick. As Mike Sando noted his take on practice, Quick still had his rookie moments, but the progress does seem to be there, helped no doubt by his tireless work ethic.
More notes from fans on the scene after the jump.
Danny Amendola wasted no time getting his mind meld with Sam Bradford reestablished in training camp this year. His arm looks no worse for wear either.
"He's really got no issues," Fisher said of Amendola. "He was doing well prior to this break in the summer. He's running good. He's catching good and right now he's clearly on the same page with Sam (Bradford)."
It isn't easy being a Rams receiver these days either, not that it ever was, but they have much better cornerbacks working against them in practice these days. Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins are making their teammates on the other side of the ball works for every inch of each route they run.
On to some notes and observations from the scene.
