2015 St. Louis Rams: June 4th OTA Opens Team To Media For First Time (UPDATED)

New, comments

The Rams' second organized team activity will be the first open practice for the media.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Time to turn the path to the preseason up a notch.

The Rams' second of ten organized team activities will take place today in Earth City as the media is invited to observe today's proceedings. On Tuesday, we got our first look at the 2015 St. Louis Rams; today, we'll get a better look with the first 15 minutes of practice open for videographers.

After practice, Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher and the entire team will be available for interviews. Tomorrow's practice will also be open to the media, but no Fisher and no QB Nick Foles for media members.

A quick run around the major storylines we laid out a week ago:

The Offensive Line

As we passed along from @OllieReeb in our look at Tuesday's practice, we got our first suggestion at the starting line...at least as of June 2nd.

Keep an eye out for any personnel shifts from center to right tackle there. Good look around the line from Nick Wagoner yesterday if you missed it.

Injuries

Need another reminder on this front? Titans CB Brandon Harris tore his ACL on Tuesday in practice and will miss the 2015 season. So while we've got Brian Quick, Todd Gurley, Rodger Saffold, Isaiah Pead and Bud Sasser all on recovery road, it's also important not to add to that list.

The Rookies

Plenty to sort through here with the post-Mannion picks as well as the UDFAs. I expect all of you to begin selecting your favorite UDFAs and prepare for war with those Rams fans who disagree with you.

Defense

Plenty of standbys here, but plenty to sort through nonetheless. How to cycle Nick Fairley into that front four? How to manage the Akeem Ayers/Jo-Lonn Dunbar/Mark Barron reps? Is Lamarcus Joyner going to blossom into something relevant to the Rams' secondary?

Stay tuned.
