Myle Simmons tweeted some Interesting news as practice kicked off today.
TE Tyler Higbee comes to the field sans helmet and pads--clearly day off today. We'll see if there's an update from Fisher after practice.— Myles Simmons (@MylesASimmons) August 17, 2016
Now I've been out of the loop for a few days, but this is the first time I've heard of any issues with Higbee. Jeff Fisher showed last week with the Isaiah Battle situation that he's not exactly proactive with injury news in the preseason.
It's one thing to withhold news from a swing tackle fighting to make the final roster. It's another to do it with the player who has arguably turned the most heads in camp. Higbee has earned the adoration of Rams fans who are likely concerned by this development.
Hopefully we hear more about this after practice - and for Jared Goff's sake let's hope that it's not serious.
