It’s been a rotten season for the Rams first year back in Los Angeles, and after coaching and managing controversies, here comes another potential disaster.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff missed Wednesday’s practice because of what coach Jeff Fisher described as “a virus that’s been going around.”
“Jared came in the building early this morning and he wasn’t feeling well so we treated him,” Fisher said after practice at California Lutheran University.
“He participated in the meetings, through install and everything and just was not feeling well. We felt it was best to send him home. He’ll be back in the morning, I’m sure.”
Fisher said Goff’s absence “doesn’t set him back at all.”
“I’m not concerned about it,” Fisher said.
Goff is expected to make the fourth start of his NFL career on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, still seeking his first victory.
Running back Benny Cunningham and cornerback E.J. Gaines also both missed practice, a team official said. Cunningham suffered a neck injury and Gaines a thigh injury in Sunday’s 26-10 loss to the New England Patriots.
Tavon Austin fully participated in the practice after missing Sunday’s game because of a chest injury in the 49-21 loss to the New Orleans Saints Nov. 27.
Defensive end Robert Quinn had limited participation, meaning he participated in less than less than 100 percent of his normal repetitions. Quinn missed the Patriots game because of a concussion suffered against New Orleans.
Offensive lineman Roger Saffold fully participated in the practice after missing the Patriots game because of a hand injury suffered in the Saints game.
