The Los Angeles Rams hit the field on Tuesday in preparation for their Week 2 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Following practice the team took to the showers to get ready for tonight’s episode of Hard Knocks. No, wait, that’s not how it happens...
At any rate, while I try to figure that out, here’s what happened out on the field today.

Fisher saysDE Robert Quinn is in Rio to support his sister who is competing in the Olympics in track and field. He should be back for game.— Myles Simmons (@MylesASimmons) August 17, 2016
...and that was it for the day. A relatively (very) quiet Tuesday, all things considered. We’ll await further word on the status of defensive starters Mark Barron and Maurice Alexander. Updates should come as soon as this evening, assuming Rams’ head coach Jeff Fisher fields questions about their absence in his post-practice press conference.
We’re also likely to hear how the trio of QB’s looked, and how the defense is preparing for the Chiefs this Saturday.
We’ll keep you updated as word breaks. For now, fingers crossed that a pair of starters are just taking the day off for a bit of soreness.
