St. Louis Rams: Recapping Day 3 In Training Camp

New, comments

On Sunday, the St. Louis Rams held their third training camp practice. Soon preseason games will begin. Let's recap what happened during practice.

The Good

Remember in 2012 when the Rams drafted Brian Quick in the second round; a relatively unknown receiver who still hasn't shown enough to consistently stay on the field with the starters? This is Quick's third season and maybe this will be the one when he puts it all together. So far, it looks like he is coming along right on cue.

One of the most interesting rookies for the Rams is Lamarcus Joyner. He might be small in stature, but he made big plays in college which lead to the Rams drafting him as their nickel corner back in the second round.

The Bad

It's hard to put a lot of stock into training camp when there's no pads on (honestly, it's hard to judge players until the regular season begins), but the common sentiment seems to be that Jenkins is struggling.

Don't be too worried about Jenkins yet, but if this continues it could become a problem. What was interesting on day three? Kenny Britt seems like the veteran receiver the Rams have been missing.

The Kenny Britt factor

Seems like Britt and Quick are best friends now.

Interesting bits of information

Trumaine Johnson didn't practice because of an injury. Also, Jake Long didn't practice which caused shifts on the offensive line, mainly Rodger Saffold moving to left tackle and newly acquired guard Davin Joesph playing guard.

Now that Austin knows the playbook could they actually use him everywhere?

Sounds like head coach Jeff Fisher is making Tre Mason earn his position on the roster. Granted, the Rams have been rotating the running backs in camp, but it was interesting to note Isaiah Pead getting a fair share of carries with the second team. Well that's it for the recap, tomorrow the Rams will have a closed padded practice with the special teams unit, but on Tuesday the whole team will be in full pads. it's almost time for football!

Oh yeah, and one of the most amazing training camp moments happened when a former Superbowl winning quarterback took the field and played catch with Chris Givens and Tavon Austin. Did you miss the amazing moment? Well, don't worry you can catch it here.
