As the Los Angeles Rams prepare for a week 10 bout with the division rival Seattle Seahawks, the city of Thousand Oaks (where many players live and the Rams call home just a few miles away) is undergoing a tragedy.
There was yet another mass shooting and this time it struck incredibly close to home to the Rams.
The Rams released a statement yesterday on the tragic events and said they will have a moment of silence prior to the game in week 10:

Here are some pulled quotes from yesterday’s tragedy:
Head Coach Sean McVay:
Our organization’s thoughts and prayers are with the families and the victims that were affected by this terrible act that took place in our area.
LT Andrew Whitworth:
I just don’t believe that sitting there wondering is the best way. Find a way to put your feet on the ground and take action and get involved in some way.
Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips:
Our players are genuinely and greatly concerned about it.
