Here we go.
The Los Angeles Rams 2017 Training Camp officially begins today. For all the info you need getting to camp, getting around and what to pay attention to, check out our training camp preview. Here’s the training camp schedule with all 15 practices.
Here are the main four storylines we’ll be tracking for every practice throughout camp:
The Rams enter camp with 10 players listed unavailable:
Physically Unable To Perform (PUP) List - Active
- WR Mike Thomas
- RB Lance Dunbar
- TE Johnny Mundt
Non-Football Injury (NFI) List - Active
S Maurice Alexander
CB/S Lamarcus Joyner
TE Cory Harkey
- DT Omarius Bryant
- CB Dominique Hatfield
- G Alex Kozan
- CB Aarion Penton
On top of those two, we know WR Tavon Austin is coming back from wrist surgery in early May while LB Josh Forrest tore his ACL in November.
(Updated at 2:27pm ET)
Alexander, Joyner and Harkey are all available:

This is sure to be the big draw today. Seeing how QB Jared Goff is handled between new Rams Head Coach Sean McVay and new Offensive Coordinator Matt LaFleur with new rookies TE Gerald Everett and WR Cooper Kupp to go with the second-year targets is likely going to be where most fans focus.
Wading with Wade
If the Rams have any chance at avoiding a losing record this year though, it’s going to require the defense to carry the day. New Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips is tasked with doing what former Head Coach Jeff Fisher and former Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams could not: translate the talent on defense into a top NFL defense.
This is more of a long-term storyline with the Rams visiting the Chargers on August 5 as they come to our place four days later, but perhaps we hear the grumblings of the attendees about the mere existence of the Chargers in the vicinity just minutes away.
