Just yesterday, we saw Los Angeles Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher get upset with his defense for taking RB Todd Gurley to the ground in 9-on-7 drills. Today, Gurley did his part by getting involved in one of many scrums during practice.
Rams OL Rob Havenstein, on PUP, is "making progress," Fisher said. He'll travel with the team, work out pregame, hope to practice next week.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) August 25, 2016

S Mark Barron was limited today and Havenstein did individual work. WR Bradley Marquez and Spruce remain hobbled but nothing serious. RB Aaron Green should be back for the game on Sunday on the road to face the Denver Broncos.
Lots of info in this video. Jared Goff reportedly had one of his best practices.
Jeff Fisher on Rams post-scuffle: "They got a little testy so I gave them a timeout. It’s like go sit in the corner, go to your room."— Gary Klein (@LATimesklein) August 25, 2016
Fisher on Gurley at bottom of pile: "We all need to be smarter there. But that was his choice. Shows you what a competitor he is."— Gary Klein (@LATimesklein) August 25, 2016
So much JTG grit. But Todd, you are the team’s hopes and dreams this year. Save it for the bad guys. As noted in the video above, another bad day for WR Brian Quick, and another pedestrian practice from the WRs.
Jeff Fisher said this is the last practice that they can "legitimately practice with pads on"... And they got a little testy.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) August 25, 2016
Ogletree said it’s a focus to hold DEN to 0 points on first drive. Said it’s to set the tone, make offense feel it’s going to be a long day.— Myles Simmons (@MylesASimmons) August 25, 2016
Personally, I like Ogletree getting rough in practice. The first team defense has had its struggles the first two weeks and seems anxious to put forth a solid effort in Denver.
Another 48-hour setup period to preseason football...
