Rams Day 10 camp report

Zac Stacy (USA TODAY Sports)

ST. LOUIS — The Rams have had some key players sitting out of practice recently with various ailments, so it wasn’t a good sign to see starting running back Zac Stacy walk off the practice field on Tuesday evening.

There was no word after practice about Stacy and what the second-year running back may have tweaked during practice, so we will have to wait until Friday night’s preseason opener against the Saints to find out if Stacy suffered anything serious. It didn’t look like it, but we’ll see.

If Stacy doesn't play on Friday, fans will see Benny Cunningham, rookie Tre Mason and Chase Reynolds get a lot of work at running back.

• Wide receiver Brian Quick returned to practice after missing a few days and made a nice diving catch on a Sam Bradford pass during a 7-on-7 period.

• Among the players still not participating on Tuesday were middle linebacker James Laurinaitis, offensive linemen Rodger Saffold, Barrett Jones and Brandon Washington, cornerback Janoris Jenkins, defensive tackle Michael Brockers and undrafted rookie running back Trey Watts.

Watts will need to get back on the field soon to help his chances of earning a roster spot. He can’t show what he’s capable of unless he gets out there and gets some carries during the preseason.

Jeff Fisher said after practice that it is unlikely quarterback Sam Bradford and veteran offensive linemen Jake Long and Scott Wells will play on Friday against the Saints.

• Bradford looked good once again slinging the ball around.

He had a nice completion along the left sideline to Stedman Bailey during an 11-on-11 period, found Lance Kendricks and Tavon Austin for touchdown passes later on and connected with Kenny Britt for a long pass late in a team session.

T.J. Moe had two more nice catches during a team session, a good follow-up to his Monday practice where he also had two good catches.

• Undrafted rookie cornerback Marcus Roberson had a interception of an overthrown pass from Austin Davis late in the team period. Roberson, one of the youngest players on the team at 21 years old, should get a lot of snaps during the preseason games and will have a chance to impress.

• The Rams have a special teams practice on Wednesday that is open to the media but not open to the public.
