Throughout training camp, team insider Myles Simmons will share his top observations from each practice.
1) Los Angeles began the session with special teams and Johnny Hekker launching a number of punts. Hekker was routinely making his kicks at least 45 yards, working to move the ball in a number of different directions. During the offseason program, special teams coordinator John Fassel said one of Hekker's goals for 2018 was to get better at directional punts.
2) As head coach Sean McVay said would be the case, many of the Rams veteran players received practice off. Among others, the list included the Rams' longtime veteran offensive linemen — Andrew Whitworth, Rodger Saffold, and John Sullivan — along with defensive linemen Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers, and cornerback Aqib Talib. With his heavy use rate, running back Todd Gurley also received a vet day.
