A surprise transaction came today as the Los Angeles Rams opened their first training camp since moving from St. Louis.
From today’s transaction wire: Rams placed RT Rob Havenstein on the preseason physically unable to perform list.— Myles Simmons (@MylesASimmons) July 28, 2016
No specifics were released, but in the comments of that tweet, Myles says that Havenstein "didn't do much during OTAs either...was mainly on the bike" and that he "could be back in under a week." Those are both positives, but he seems to be careful not to give out too much information (which is his job mind you).
It's possible that Havenstein just suffered a minor injury during the offseason, but the lack of detail on the situation is unsettling. Big Rob had an outstanding rookie season and the Rams are counting on him to protect new Franchise QB Jared Goff.
Here's hoping it is something that won't have lasting consequences on the Rams 2016 season.
