Back at it, another day another dollar. The Los Angeles Rams have officially wrapped up another day of practice, let’s take a look at what happened.
Doesn’t seem to be much news on this front. WR Josh Reynolds has returned from injury and is practicing, and when I say “he’s returned”, he’s returned in a BIG way. Also, Sammy Watkins seems to be 100% ready to roll.
McVay said running back Aaron Green had hand surgery last week. He's practicing again. Presumably battling Justin Davis for roster spot.— Rich Hammond (@Rich_Hammond) August 16, 2017
This was the noteworthy part in terms on injury. Aaron Green needs to get healthy quickly, he’s got a chance to be a real contributor on the 53-man roster.
Sammy Watkins got a little more involved in full-team drills today but still wasn't really targeted yet.— Rich Hammond (@Rich_Hammond) August 16, 2017
Sounds like Watkins is slowly coming along. There was news that Watkins was walking around with a play-sheet during practice.
One guy who stood out today: WR Josh Reynolds. He looked really good. Big target, made several impressive catches in traffic.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) August 16, 2017
Saw a nice one to Reynolds in 7/7 https://t.co/nDCvv7vjPq— Rich Hammond (@Rich_Hammond) August 16, 2017
Sounds like rookie WR Josh Reynolds had a big day. Finally practicing again, he may be finally ready to show his true ability, and who knows, that blockbuster trade Les Snead pulled off a few days ago may have sparked him.

Though they aren’t doing much (right now), this feels good to see. Sammy looks pretty healthy to me, and that was just way too easy for a guy as talented as he is.
Lastly, not too much has come out on Jared Goff’s day, but it sounds like the defense is still flying around.
Two interceptions each for Goff and Mannion today. First-team Rams defense very good once again. Cody Davis and John Johnson picked Goff.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) August 16, 2017
Once again, it sounds like the defense seems to be a step ahead of the offense. Yesterday’s practice (Monday), it was reported that Goff threw three interceptions, and two more that were dropped by defenders. Sounds like the defense is really starting to come into its own, and it’s consistently making plays on the daily. Now, this could be a product of being used to the offense’s tendencies, but they also showed in the game against the Dallas Cowboys, that this defense is for real.
Sounds like things are progressing slowly, we’ll see this front after the Oakland Raiders game coming this Saturday.
