VETERANS COMING BACK
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said on Sunday that
“We’re expecting Jake to play, which will be good,” Fisher said. “We’ve got to get Jake in there and get Jake and Scott, make sure they’re surrounding Greg [Robinson].”
Fisher also said that the Rams will do more game planning this week on both sides of the ball, as is customary across the league for the third preseason game.

RB PASS PROTECTION
“There’s two issues: one is recognition -- who you’ve got -- and then two is actually going out and executing the block,” Fisher said. “It starts with the recognition, and that’s where there was a breakdown, and we gave up a hit on the quarterback.”

THE MAN FROM D-II
“Honestly, I was kind of upset about the last play that I could’ve had on [Matt] Flynn,” Westbrooks said. “I felt good about it overall, but it’s always that one play that you miss that sticks out in your mind more than anything.”
We’ll bring you more from the undrafted free agent later today.
The Rams will have their final two training camp practiceson Tuesday and Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. Both sessions are free and open to the public, so don’t miss out on seeing your favorite team at Rams Park.
