Matthew Stafford throws passes in Rams' camp practice opener (2022)

Matthew Stafford throws passes in Rams' camp practice opener (1)


IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford threw to receivers in practice Sunday for the first time since Los Angeles' Super Bowl victory.

Stafford had an injection in his throwing elbow early in the offseason to treat an unspecified injury with which he played late last season. He avoided any serious throws during minicamps and organized team activities, but he was throwing again in the opening practice of the Rams' training camp at UC Irvine.

“It feels good to get out there, just knock some rust off it a little bit, stress it and see how it reacts,” Stafford said.

Stafford said he has gradually ramped up his throwing activity in recent months, and he threw the ball in informal workouts before training camp. Along with the usual camp work, he must build a rapport with new receiver Allen Robinson, who joined Los Angeles as a free agent shortly before the team traded Robert Woods to Tennessee.

“Just trying to progress back into it,” Stafford said. “That was kind of what my time between OTAs and camp was. It’s a little bit of a process, but you’ve just got to sit there and go with it.”

Stafford and the Rams have repeatedly said he should be ready well in advance of Los Angeles' regular season opener against Buffalo on Sept. 8 at SoFi Stadium. Rams coach Sean McVay typically doesn't allow his key starters to play at all in the preseason.

McVay also announced Sunday that the Rams decided not to put Jalen Ramsey on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, allowing the All-Pro cornerback to participate in the walk-through portions of training camp practices. Ramsey had surgery on his shoulder during the offseason, and the Rams said Saturday he would start the year on the PUP list.

Rookie safety Quentin Lake is on the PUP list while the team monitors a knee injury, McVay said.

The first-year Jaguars coach says quarterback Trevor Lawrence needs live repetitions with new receivers Christian Kirk, Zay Jones and Evan Engram and rookie center Luke Fortner.

Raiders give McDaniels happy homecoming, beat Jaguars 27-11

Josh Jacobs and rookie Zamir White ran well on a rain-soaked field and the Raiders routed Jacksonville 27-11 in the Hall of Fame game Thursday night, spoiling coach Doug Pederson’s first game with the Jaguars. Derek Carr and Davante Adams warmed up but they didn’t get a chance to play their first game together since Fresno State. Carr, the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, and Adams, the All-Pro receiver acquired in blockbuster trade with Green Bay, were among many starters who sat out for both teams. Jacksonville’s Trevor Lawrence wore a backward cap on the sideline while third-string quarterback Jake Luton was started. The NFL’s first preseason game began 40 minutes late due to severe weather that forced fans to seek shelter.

Titans patient as QB Malik Willis makes jump from Liberty

Malik Willis is experiencing some growing pains as the Tennessee Titans rookie works through his first NFL training camp. Willis has completed some nice passes and gotten the chance to run plays with the second-team offense. He took a sack Friday to wrap up practice. That’s OK. The Titans can be patient with Willis because Ryan Tannehill is their starter. Titans quarterbacks coach Pat O'Hara says it's one day at a time with Willis. O'Hara says that's OK because Willis has been great. The challenge is whether Willis can progress fast enough to challenge Logan Woodside for the job backing up Tannehill.

Cowboys give Turpin shot at NFL amid backdrop of TCU assault

KaVontae Turpin is getting his first chance in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys nearly four years after the receiver and kick returner was accused of assaulting his girlfriend, ending his career at TCU. Turpin pleaded guilty in the assault case with a chance to clear the conviction from his record. He says he had to learn from “my accountability, my consequences.” The 5-foot-7 Turpin is also an NFL longshot because of his size. If he makes the roster, Turpin will be close to his former college home with more time to tell his story.

Lions lose 4th player to retirement this summer

Detroit Lions rookie offensive tackle Zein Obeid has retired, the fourth player to end his career with the team in two months. Lions coach Dan Campbell said Monday that Kendall Lamm was signed to fill Obeid’s roster spot.
