Today’s practice will be held at the Coliseum, so don’t head to UC Irvine. It’s “Family Day.” Make sure you’ve got a ticket too. Seating will be first come, first serve.

Injury Updates

Rookie WR Pharoh Cooper got back in the mix. That leaves just two Rams reported on injured status: CB E.J. Gaines, who sounds like he might not make the preseason opener, and RT Rob Havenstein who is still on the PUP list.

Jared Goff

In all seriousness depending on how he looks today, it’s time to ask when Rams fans will worry about Goff’s rookie season. The reports on his struggles are getting frequent. His readiness is being questioned. He’s reportedly lagging behind his peers. He’s still backing up Case Keenum...Case Keenum. Let that sink in.

I’m not suggesting that today is the threshold for worry to be justified. But that day does exist. And I’m eager to see how fans feel it approaching.

Offensive Development

Recent reporting has done nothing to slow the rising expectations behind rookie TE Tyler Higbee. And given the production at that spot in recent years...

Defensive Adjustment

It’s all about personnel rotation today. Cycling through at linebacker, cornerback and safety will give us our first real glimpse into the depth chart as it stands.

Bear in mind, all NFL clubs will have to make their first round of roster cuts to get to 75 the business week following the third preseason game. The final 53-man cuts will come September 3.

Today should give us a fair starting point to jump off of.
