The Los Angeles Rams cancelled practice Friday out of an abundance of precaution. The team said it had two tests from people in the organization that needed more testing, so the team decided to do all of its work Friday virtually. The Rams’ home game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday is still on schedule to be played.
The Rams say two members of the organization received COVID-19 results “that required further testing”, and have canceled practice today out of an abundance of caution. All meetings are virtual and Sean McVay will still address media later today.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) November 27, 2020
While it is not ideal to have a day of practice wiped out, if there is any day to miss a practice it is Friday. It is the shortest practice day of the week. The Rams got most of their work in earlier in the week and since it’s a short week — the Rams won in Tampa Bay on Monday night — the extra rest might do the Rams well heading into the San Francisco game.
Sean McVay says he was told late last night that a player and a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. Both re-tested and were negative, then re-tested a third time and were negative. Made practice all-virtual as added precaution and in part give players a little more rest.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) November 27, 2020
