Practice Recap: Receivers Come Up Big

Posted Jul 27, 2014

The St. Louis Rams offense took a step forward, including jaw-dropping touchdown receptions by Brian Quick, Kenny Britt and Jared Cook at training camp today.

The Rams entertained well over 2,200 fans in the team’s third training camp practice of 2014 on Sunday evening.
“We appreciate them coming back and hope they continue [to do so],” Fisher said of the weekend-high crowd.
Sam Bradford drew applause on multiple occasions, including notable touchdown passes to Brian Quick, Kenny Britt and Jared Cook.
“[The ball] is spinning off his hands right now and he made some great throws,” Fisher said. “At the other end of those throws, there were some great catches.”
- Legendary Rams quarterback Kurt Warner attended practice on behalf of NFL Network this evening. We will have much more on Kurt’s appearance tomorrow, including an exclusive interview with Casey Phillips, however, check out his exclusive one-on-one with current Rams quarterback Sam Bradford below.

- Tim Barnes returned to work with the first-team offense today after parting way for second-year offensive lineman Barrett Jones yesterday. Per Jeff Fisher’s press conference following yesterday’s practice, both players will rotate with the ones until Scott Wells returns to practice in full.
- Robert Quinn put on a show at practice today and needless to say, Fisher was impressed.
“He’s got a great future ahead of him,” Fisher stated. “Obviously he’s going to attract some attention, but our defense is such that if they so choose to do that, either someone else is going to come free or someone else is going to take advantage of a one-on-one.”

- The Rams are scheduled to wear pads for the first time tomorrow in a closed special teams practice at Rams Park before opening back up to the public for a full practice at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
“Last year, we decided to put the pads on for the first day in the special teams practice and we’re going to do that again, so shoulder pads will go on tomorrow,” Fisher said. “Everybody involved in special teams will be out in the morning. Anybody that’s not involved will be in a recovery phase inside at the same time.”
Last year’s first pads day proved to be vital for Ray Ray Armstrong and Daren Bates, who both played significant roles on special teams last season.
“Both of them were core guys for us last year and big play guys,” Fisher said. “They’re both settling in and doing a nice job on the defense.”
That’s it for today, but check back tomorrow for plenty of Kurt Warner coverage, as well as a recap of special teams practice.
