Practice begins at 3:30pm PT
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.
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.
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.
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...
Jared Cook has been the Rams leading receiver for past 3 seasons. And he wasn't good. Boras(former TE coach) is now OC. #Higbee— Soul of Foles (@_BMule) August 6, 2016
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.
Today should give us a fair starting point to jump off of.
