(Costa Mesa, Ca) Head Coach of the L.A. Rams, Sean McVay, allowed the first couple days of practice to start without pads but added gear on Sunday without tackling.
McVay mentioned how evaluating practices is easier once players are in pads. On Saturday, McVay said the team won’t go full-tackle football during camp, but padded practices will allow the team to “thud.”
“I think we’ve got a lot of guys that know how to practice [with] pads on,” McVay said following Saturday’s practice. “Want to try to make sure we’re getting that physicality, but also limiting the risk for injury with some of things that can occur when guys are going to the ground, consistently getting rolled up on.”
“For the first day, the biggest thing is great energy. Guys were competing but doing it in a smart way and that’s what we like,” McVay said.
