Tuesday was another good day for the Rams at training camp, as they got some guys back from injuries and saw some impressive performances by others. Rookie RB Daryl Richardson was on the field, as was Rodger Saffold and Scott Wells, although Wells was limited. Also, Robert Quinn continued to impress everyone in attendance with his performance. Here is what coach Jeff Fisher had to say after practice.
“You know what? Practice was good. We got Daryl Richardson back, which is good. He had been working the last few days, we got him acclimated, and looks like that injury is behind him. Good to see him back in there doing some things, been clearly paying attention and really didn’t have any problems in there. Good to have him back. Got a lot done. They battled through the heat and just pushed right through it. We got better today. He has great speed vision, very explosive, he’s tough, he can run inside, he can run outside. He runs the entire offense. He gives us speed, he can get to the edge and set up the outside zone. He got good tracking ability on the inside zone, and good vision.”
“I am kind of just hoping that thing carries over in the games. It kind of reminds me of a little bit – even though you’re going to think I’m crazy about the comparison – but a little bit about (Titans running back) Chris Johnson’s rookie year in training camp when you said, ‘Gosh, if this was a game do you think he’d score?’ And I am thinking, ‘Well if this is a game, he should have a few sacks by the time the game is over’. He has really improved.”
“He’s good. He fought through a little minor pull, and he got back in there and is doing fine. Learning, playing physical, and he and (Robert) Quinn are working good together right now.”

“Well, it helps both of our tackles. Our offensive line is getting better because the talent level their lining up against and vice versa. Its good for Robert (Quinn) to work against Rodger (Saffold). They come in, they put in a days work and they learn, they help each other.”
