    Bonsignore: What is Aaron Donald seeking with holdout?

    IRVINE — The Rams will play their first preseason game of 2017 Saturday against the Dallas Cowboys at the Coliseum.

    Miller: Rams, Chargers bring the kid out of each other

    IRVINE >> The words came from a man being paid $16.7 million this season and were directed at a man in the middle of a four-year, $83.25 million contract. “He started it,” Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson said, and clearly no amount of money can buy the kid out of some grownups. A day later, it remained unclear if Johnson followed his remark by sticking out his tongue at the Chargers and threatening to give Dean Spanos a nuclear wedgie. In an...

    Pharoh Cooper feels like a veteran among a young group of Rams receivers

    IRVINE >> Only on this team, in this situation, could Pharoh Cooper be considered a veteran. Cooper is in his second NFL training camp and has caught 14 passses in regular-season games. Among the 12 receivers on the field for the Rams at UC Irvine on Thursday, only one other guy could say that. So, Cooper, at age 22 and entering his second season, is someone being looked upon for leadership. He has the makeup to handle it, and the Rams hope he has the on-field skills to...

    Rams’ cornerbacks, the ‘bus drivers,’ add some fight to their training-camp talk

    IRVINE >> Turns out, the Rams’ receivers have been showing a lot of poise during training camp. The Rams’ defensive backs have been loud and feisty throughout training camp. They celebrate plays on the sidelines and aren’t afraid to let receivers known when they get the better of the on-field action. Not surprisingly, things got more physical Wednesday when the Chargers visited UC Irvine. Three fights broke out in less than a half-hour, early in...

    Highlights from Wednesday’s Rams practice

    A brief look at the Rams’ training-camp practice on Wednesday: Big moment During 7-on-7 drills halfway through practice, Tyler Higbee displayed why the Rams are so high on their tight ends, as Higbee ran a post route and caught a perfectly thrown 40-yard touchdown from quarterback Jared Goff, who also happens to be his training-camp roommate.
