Here comes the cavalry

Okay. that’s the bad news folks. But that’s not where we end this article, oh no. Some commenters are spending much too much time in the dark ‘glass is half empty’ outlook of the LA Rams season. Well, enough is enough.  Let’s talk about some of the guys who are returning from injury. But who can we discuss?  How about that tight end/wide receiver athletic freak Jacob Harris?

You know, this guy?

Per The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue, Jacob Harris is already working his way back into the drills

Harris is a fast learner, an understudy who quickly learns the lines better than any actor on the stage. He is being groomed by tight end coach Wes Phillips, and when that is not enough, he is getting some one-on-one time with head coach Sean McVay as well.  That time off was not really time off at all. Harris used the time to load up on the playbook, mentally learn his role on offense and that of his teammates. Now, as he eases back onto the field, he resembles the maturity of a returning veteran.

And per Stu Jackson’s video, he’s finding his way into the end zone.

Harris will be a matchup nightmare for defenses. Now back to that thumb injury. What is the prognosis? Per Ian Rapoport, the injury will be rest and heal only. No tears or breaks. Whew. That’s a huge relief. Now, we can refocus on training camp.

Of course, we can work out the details after reports start to trickle in over the football pads. That starts today. While we will share what we can, keep in mind that whenever evaluating the receiver, that performance will depend upon the quarterback throwing the football, and the defensive back who is assigned that coverage.

This is a Rams offense that is poised to live up to its goals for the season.  Not only does the team have more weapons, but with Stafford throwing the ball they all look like starting material.
