Jourdan thinks with tomorrow being a day off the Rams may use Monday to ramp up and then pads Tuesday.

Bubba said shorts and shells but i just saw guys in shorts and t-shirts. I wonder is shells now constitute a padded practice? The other thing is, as much as we fans want to see them in pads, i'm not sure if coaches like McVay feel the same way. With or without the CBA, he just seems to be a lot more measured about how much wear and tear/strain he wants put on his players...

Ryan back on the Rams beat (while Klein is in Tokyo)



Jalen Ramsey burns Matthew Stafford, who then gets on a roll

By Ryan Kartje

Jalen Ramsey watched the new quarterback’s eyes, ready to pounce.

Matthew Stafford had earned only rave reviews over the first four days of Rams camp, flashing the kind of veteran savvy and pinpoint accuracy that inspired the franchise to trade significant assets for him in the offseason. But as Stafford laced a throw near the left sideline during a team portion of Saturday’s practice, the Rams’ top cornerback got the best of the new quarterback.

A pass intended for wide receiver Cooper Kupp was stolen away by Ramsey, the cornerback was off to the races, and the veteran quarterback, forced to confront his first major mistake of camp, set about burning the Rams’ top-notch defense to a crisp.

There was a no-look pass to running back Darrell Henderson, a sidearm slingshot to Kupp for a corner score, a laser to receiver Robert Woods over the middle. For the rest of the team period, an especially determined Stafford unleashed every weapon in his arsenal.

On his final throw of practice, Stafford uncorked a deep ball to Woods for a session-ending touchdown, giving the offense the last word and sending Rams coach Sean McVay sprinting up the sideline.

“The goal is being able to push one another,” McVay said. “When you get into those competitive situations, that’s exactly what we want to see.”

It was also further proof of the strong early connection between Stafford and Woods, who had a standout performance Saturday.

“I was able to send it off on a good note,” Woods said.

Observations from Day 4:

— The pads won’t come on until Tuesday, so the pecking order in the Rams’ backfield could look radically different a week from now. But through the first three days of camp, Xavier Jones has served as the No. 2 back behind Henderson, while seventh-round rookie Jake Funk has been close behind him. Funk, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee twice at Maryland, showed some nice acceleration on a touchdown run during the team period, shaking a defender in the backfield, then speeding up to pass another.

— The competition at outside linebacker beyond Leonard Floyd is wide open, but Justin Hollins might have an inside track. Hollins was claimed off waivers by the Rams last season and still managed to tally three sacks. He could be in line for even more opportunity if he’s able to stave off the likes of Ogbonnia Okoronkwo. “Hollins showed me a lot last year,” Floyd said Saturday. “He’s building on that, taking it one practice at a time, and growing from rep to rep.”

— Rookie tight end Jacob Harris is still working his way back from a minor injury suffered during the spring, but you wouldn’t know it judging by the first few days of camp. The fourth-round pick has proved himself to be a physical specimen. He dropped a few passes from Stafford during drills, but the raw skills are clearly there, even if he’s a bit lanky at 6 feet 5, 210 pounds.

— Rookie cornerback Robert Rochell injured his wrist during Friday’s practice and will have surgery. His timeline to return is undetermined, but the injury is a setback for the fourth-round pick, who had a chance to earn a role in the Rams’ secondary rotation. Rookie defensive tackle Bobby Brown III suffered a thumb injury and also will have surgery. He’s expected back within a week.

Chick Hearn used to say that when guys played with Magic they had to keep their hands up or they'd get hit upside the head with his no look passes. Looks like the Rams might need to teach that too.
