Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay said he halted practice Sunday for a team meeting because there are “some things we want to be smart about how we practice.”
“The thing that’s been refreshing about these guys is (they) always (do) whatever we ask and I couldn’t be more appreciative of that,” McVay said following practice at UC Irvine, the team’s second of its 2019 training camp.
“We got a chance to talk about a couple things and they responded the right way, finished it off and then we got some of our younger guys some good work at the end there.”
Running back Todd Gurley II was given the day off. He will return to practice Monday, then be given Tuesday off, McVay said.
The Rams have designated Monday’s practice as a “Legends Reunion,” with more than 50 former players over six decades set to attend.
A panel discussion will be conducted.
Fans will receive a Rams a poster featuring Rams legends and limited amount of merchandise marking the NFL’s 100th season while supplies last.
Defensive backs will sign autographs following practice.
Tuesday will be Youth Sports Day, billed as a celebration of “student-athletes and the stars of today and tomorrow.” Fans will receive an athletic sleeve while supplies last.
Running backs and wide receivers will sign autographs.
Practice both days will begin at 4 p.m. with gates to UC Irvine’s Crawford Field opening at 2 p.m.
A fan activation zone will open at 2 p.m. before each practice.
