Thursday, it was reported the Rams were planning to delay the start of training camp from Tuesday to an undetermined date. The reason was uncertainty surrounding the NFL’s plan for camp and the season.

However, Friday, the NFL and NFL Player Association both agreed to new guidelines for training camp and the regular season while dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

Barring an unexpected refusal by players later Friday, teams will now be able to start training camp Tuesday, which was the Rams’ original plan. It is not known if the Rams will reconsider now that things have been cleared up. I’d think there is a good chance they do start Tuesday. Whenever the Rams start, it is going to be a slow progression to the season.

The Rams begin the regular season, at home, at the brand new SoFi Stadium, September 13 in a Sunday night game against the Dallas Cowboys. The journey to and during the season is going to be odd, but, at least, it seems like we will have Rams’ football in 2020 and that’s pretty cool.
