It’s Day 2 of minicamp for the Los Angeles Rams which is also the last day of minicamp. Head Coach Sean McVay said yesterday at his press availability the Rams will forego the last day of camp (as they did last year) and tour the construction site of the LA Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park.

Performance

We got a couple good nuggets. Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips has tabbed his starting outside linebackers in EDGE Matt Longacre and EDGE Samson Ebukam:

And indeed it will likely be ILB Cory Littleton next to ILB Mark Barron:

Overall, these aren’t too surprising. We talked about the linebacking corps back in late April ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft and the likelihood that the Rams already had their starting linebackers on the roster at that point.

We also got good news about K Greg Zuerlein:

Of course, that “probably” qualifier means he’d have to push it as things stand. So I wouldn’t expect K Sam Ficken to take off just yet. You do have to wonder if the appropriate timetable for GZ’s return might extend into the regular season out of an abundance of caution.

Health

No issues yesterday. Pray for none today.
