The Los Angeles Rams continue 2021 training camp on Thursday, their second training camp practice of the year. The Rams made it to UC Irvine to open up training camp to all of their players on Wednesday and while a lot of the focus will be on the new or new-ish guys, it was a veteran who stole the show again.
Cooper Kupp made one of the top plays of the day on Wednesday.
And so far, Jordan Fuller has the “green dot” and will be taking over John Johnson’s role as defensive play caller. At least, for now, according to The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue.
I saw a green dot on Jordan Fuller’s helmet And Aaron Donald confirmed it when I asked him just now - Fuller is calling signals so far this year. More coming on this later for @TheAthleticNFL— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) July 29, 2021
Many training camp questions are left to be answered, including position battles at center, right guard, slot cornerback, the other safety spot opposite of Fuller, and a multitude of linebacker and edge jobs. Oh, and also punt returner, where rookie Tutu Atwell is the hopeful answer once the dust has settled.
Will we get more answers on Thursday? We’ll keep tabs on the Rams and the rest of the NFL right here — if you’ve got something for us to add, throw it in the comments.
Sean McVay met with the media after the first practice:
Terrell Burgess has drawn praise for his play already
“He did a great job,” McVay said after practice. “I thought he had a couple great breakups, even the one where we tried to hit DeSean down the seam and makes a great play, kind of carrying him outside, in vertical, and broke up a pass underneath. So, Terrell is a guy that’s really flashed. I thought he was just hitting his stride before he got injured, but really confident in what kind of player he can become and today he started off the right way.”
