By Marc Lawrence — LA Rams’ head coach Sean McVay is taking no risk when it comes to the potential of preseason injuries.
For a fourth consecutive season, McVay will not play starters – including quarterback Matthew Stafford, defensive lineman Aaron Donald, and cornerback Jalen Ramsey – in preseason games, and McVay seems to be taking his cautious approach a step further this season, opting to sit several rotational players and backups as well.
“We’ll get a chance to see a lot of our depth guys because there’s going to be probably about 35 players that are not playing in this game for us,” McVay said after training camp practice at the team facility on Thursday. “The goal is always to try to stay healthy.”
Remember that moving forward.
