10 observations from Day 7 of training camp | Rams official site

Rams insider Myles Simmons had some interesting takes on training camp.

Before practice began, defensive lineman Michael Brockers was out on the field with a few of Los Angeles’ younger players at his position like Tanzel Smart, Chunky Clements, Sebastian Joseph-Day, and Omarius Bryant. Brockers led the group in some technique work, helping each of the young linemen improve on their moves at the line of scrimmage.

The severity is unclear, but best wishes to Young Gerald’s shoulder.

Speaking of dorks, you can now print out a uniform schedule and put it in your wallet!

First off, RB Todd Gurley II is now a Ram for a while and that’s pretty good! But is it all good?
