That’s fandom.

Injuries

The big news today was that Los Angeles Rams RT Rob Havenstein looked like he was getting back into the swing.

I asked back in February why Big Rob didn’t get more Rookie of the Year buzz after being the only offensive tackle to play in 12 or more games in 2015 who didn’t concede a single sack. His return is great news.

Now, that doesn’t mean the Rams need to press him into action. Remember that E.J. Gaines, coming off of his 2015 foot injury that kept him out all year, injured his hamstring earlier in training camp this year. It’s hard not to connect the two, though it could certainly be coincidence.

That’s the kind of coincidence that we’d all prefer to avoid with Havenstein.

Jared Goff

Need to hear a lot more of this down the stretch. Rams media reporting rules makes it tough, and the allure of attending camp for the fans certainly wanes in these last few. Still...we’re 20 days away from the season opener.

Moar pleez.

Offense

Not a ton to go off of today.

Here’s some Higbee touchdown porn:

Suffice to say, getting Higbee and Spruce back soonest would be optimal.

Defense

I’ve got nothing. Literally nothing. I couldn’t find anyone talking about the defense. And given how the secondary has looked in the first halves of the first two preseason games, hey, maybe that’s not a bad thing.

But to get through today’s session without anyone picking up a notable injury as guys are getting back and Jared Goff is putting in good work...yeah, that’s a good day.
