Monday Camp Notes: QB Bradford Continues to Connect with Cook

Posted Aug 5, 2013

- The Rams came off a day of rest and practiced, “better than the last time we had a day off,” according to Head Coach Jeff Fisher.

- The defense got off to a good start in 7-on-7 as CB Janoris Jenkins broke up a sure completion to start the period.

- Down in the red zone, QB Sam Bradford continued to connect with TE Jared Cook with a score. Second-year RB Isaiah Pead also showed off his catching ability in the end zone as he came down with a score over LB Alec Ogletree.

- In one-on-ones on the other side of the field, C Scott Wells displayed his skills in pass protection, while LT Jake Long continued to show his Pro Bowl ability in defending against the pass rush. DT Kendall Langford consistently worked his way into the pocket, while DT Michael Brockers exhibited his improved strength in the pass rush.

- In Monday’s team session, Bradford connected with WR Chris Givens for a big completion on the sidelines to begin the period. Soon after, QB Austin Davis hooked up with second-year WR Brian Quick for a 55-yard completion over the middle of the field.

- Pead continued to haul in receptions, while also finding space on the ground for a number of positive gains. Adding to the oohs and ahhs of the crowd in today’s practice, rookie WR Stedman Bailey continued to show off his soft hands throughout the afternoon.

- The secondary responded when Jenkins picked off a pass in acrobatic fashion and CB Trumaine Johnson added a number of passes defensed in coverage.

- WR Nick Johnson returned to practice Monday and reeled in several passes downfield in his first day back. WR Emory Blake showed some big-play ability when got into the mix with two back-to-back deep balls, the second going for a touchdown.

- In today’s special teams period, K Greg Zuerlein remained consistent as he connected with two 50-yard field goals.

- In the two-minute drill, Bradford exhibited the chemistry that he has come to develop with Cook and Austin, as the offense moved efficiently at the higher tempo.
