Here’s how it went down today.
Nothing new, reportedly. Good!
The offense reportedly had a rough day. QB Jared Goff wasn’t sharp, TE Temarrick Hemingway had a bunch of drops and the O-line was getting beat pretty regularly. Some good notes from Pure Azure in the comments in the live thread today, so shout out to him.
Rams’ defensive front is all over the O-line today. Samson Ebukam just pushed Whitworth back into Goff, who took an accidental tumble to the ground.— Rich Hammond (@Rich_Hammond) August 15, 2018
The offense hasn’t had many moments today, but Kupp just won vs Talib. Nice shot by Goff over the middle. #LARams— J.B. Long (@JB_Long) August 15, 2018
If I’m worried about any unit on the team this year personnel-wise, it’s the offensive line. Hearing things like this about LT Andrew Whitworth sincerely scare me, but let’s hope it’s an aberration.
RB Just Todd Gurley and TE Tyler Higbee hit the cameras for the team media session:
It was the DL Ndamukong Suh show today:
Rams just finished about a 90 minutes scrimmage. Ndamukong Suh was the standout for me. He could’ve taken Goff’s head off a few times.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) August 16, 2018
One takeaway from watching the Rams defense during camp: This Suh fella sure looks like he has a future in this league.— Ryan Kartje (@Ryan_Kartje) August 16, 2018
A little skirmish between C John Sullivan and rookie DL Sebastian Joseph-Day. Good to hear the rook’s not afraid of getting after it, but there is a hierarchy at work to be respected here:

Rams playing 11-on-11 and rookie DT Sebastian Joseph-Day stood up C John Sullivan — looked like Sullivan had a word and then things got heated. Joseph-Day just got spoken to on sideline. (You know, don’t hurt veteran center type stuff...)— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) August 15, 2018
And this from CB Aqib Talib is pretty funny:

GREG ZUERLEIN DA FOOTGOD BACK
Greg Zuerlein just hit a field goal in practice from 59 yards that I’m pretty sure would’ve been good from 70. Greg The Leg is back.— Ryan Kartje (@Ryan_Kartje) August 15, 2018
Went to Rams and Chargers camps today. There’s one major discrepancy between these two teams, and it’s at kicker ... https://t.co/V5FEtgRXQi— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) August 16, 2018
One more practice and then a tearful goodbye to UC Irvine for 2018.
