New, comments

We’re officially closing in, five days away from real Ram football!

Well, the Los Angeles Rams have wrapped up another practice session making this eight days of practice now since training camp has launched.

Here’s what went down today:

Injuries

It seems like the Rams have gotten out pretty well on this front, with no new injuries to report today.

McVay’s Offense

Pass of the day from Goff to Kupp. Deep in the back left corner of the end zone, dropped it in the bucket. Kupp well covered, too.

That tidbit was dropped from Myles Simmons, and here was the video captured:

Ou, that was pretty. What looks like from this angle was WR Cooper Kupp on a wheel route creating some separation and making a great over-the-head catch while toe-tapping in the endzone. Love the good sportsmanship from CB Trumaine Johnson and Kupp at the end as well.

Nice to hear these two continue to build a chemistry, as WR Robert Woods will unfortunately for himself and the Rams will be counted on to be a de facto #1 WR.

Wade’s Defense

Well, it sounds like recent free agent signing and former mentee under Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips in Denver CB Kayvon Webster is making quite an impression:

Obviously this bodes well for multiple reasons. He can be the #2 CB on the team, he can be insurance for Tru if his situation continues to go south, and lastly, maybe, just maybe, Kayvon can get us to forget about CB Janoris Jenkins.

CB Mike Jordan has also had a quietly solid camp as it seems. An UDFA last year, Jordan actually got to play a solid amount of meaningful snaps with so many CB injuries, and though he wasn’t great, there were moments that showed you promise.

#FightForLA

Not too much new on this front, you know, outside of a pathetic showing at the Chargers-Rams practice by Chargers “fans”. The next joint practice comes Wednesday, hopefully with the Rams having this practice, the showing can be flooded - showing the Chargers who really runs the city.

We got some more general news too:

Sounds like some movements have been made on the roster, more specifically at the WR position.
