Here are three reasons why Los Angeles Rams fans shouldn’t worry about Jared Goff and Todd Gurley not playing in the preseason so far.

Despite all of the early reports surrounding the Los Angeles Rams expected to play their starters in the third week of the preseason against the Houston Texans, it looks like the offense will get the rest (except for Jamon Brown) while the defense gets to see some action. After resting in each of the first two preseason games, there was some excitement about finally seeing players like Jared Goff and Todd Gurley in action, especially after last year’s surprise success.

Between Gurley finishing second in the MVP voting to Tom Brady along with Goff earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl, all eyes will be on this duo heading into Week 1 to see where Los Angeles stands when it comes to living up to the hype of a serious contender in the NFC. Expectations were already high for the Rams after winning the NFC West last season, but with key additions on both sides of the football, those expectations hit a whole new level for Sean McVay‘s squad.

And while there may be some concerns over players like Goff and Gurley failing to see any preseason action so far, here are three positive factors for Rams fans to consider over the situation since it’s not the end of the world.
