“As far as playing on Sunday (at Buccaneers), I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” McVay told reporters. “We’re working through some different things.

The Rams have stuck with struggling offensive lineman Bobby Evans through thick and thin, despite the evidence that there is more thin than thick in his performances of late.”
