And away we go.
Here’s how things look from the three major aspects:
Day 1 was more about the guys back healthy. Despite playing in Super Bowl LIII, the drama down the stretch for RB Just Todd Gurley and his knee meant that Gurley’s first carry was always going to entertain a feeling of confidence. We won’t really learn anything about it or the balance of work to be doled out between Gurley, rookie RB Darrell Henderson and perhaps reserve RB Malcolm Brown until Week 1 of the regular season when the Rams travel to take on the Carolina Panthers. Still, it was good to see JTG tote the rock. As I write this, McVay noted after practice there would be days ahead where Gurley doesn’t practice much like how they’ve treated LT Andrew Whitworth, C John Sullivan and OLB Connor Barwin in years past.
Not of ton of import, but this nugget was certainly interesting:

Not gonna let myself read too much into Day 1 of training camp, but whew...
Not a ton of note today. CB Aqib Talib did get the better of QB Jared Goff at one point:
