Tuesday, Aug. 11
As the NFL owners and league leadership met today in Chicago to hear updated proposals on the two major plans to build stadiums in Los Angeles, the St. Louis Rams are holding their final public training camp practice at Rams Park today...for perhaps the last time ever.
Should Stan Kroenke ultimately move the Rams to Inglewood, today will be pretty memorable for the fans in attendance I'd presume. Nevertheless, with this the final practice of the week before Friday's preseason opener on the road against the Oakland Raiders, it's the final tune-up for the Rams before gametime.
The center rotation continues on today with Demetrius Rhaney next in line. Things might be complicated though with this the last chance to iron things out before Friday and Barrett Jones ahead of both Rhaney and Tim Barnes on the depth chart...
RB Tre Mason and S Maurice Alexander were back in action, so the unofficial injury list included CB E.J. Gaines (foot), RB Todd Gurley (knee), DE Chris Long (back), CB Brandon McGee (foot), TE Brad Smelley (hand), LB Korey Toomer (ankle), OG Cody Wichmann (calf) and DT Doug Worthington (?).
And if you were hoping for a gametime injury report, don't hold your breath. Teams aren't required to provide them until the regular season.
Hurry and get here, Friday, so we have something concrete to talk about here. Thanks.
See the "Rookies" section, but things sound pretty good overall. Time to see this group in action.
Stay tuned, and let us know what you're seeing either at camp or online.
