    KFFL Highlight notes from camp

    Rams | Team will stage interesting battle at left guard
    Sun, 11 Jun 2006 07:05:44 -0700

    Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports there will be an interesting battle to be the St. Louis Rams starting left guard between OG Claude Terrell and OG Richie Incognito. "I think coach (head coach Scott Linehan) is giving everybody a fair shot," Incognito said. "I'm just trying to stay in the heat of the competition. Just trying to do my thing and stay near the top." Terrell was the starter last season, but he broke his wrist late in the season. Following wrist surgery in January, conditioning work for Terrell was put on hold. His waistline expanded, and Linehan dropped hints earlier in the spring that Terrell had anything but a stranglehold on the job. Judging from Linehan's comments Saturday, June 10, Terrell should take nothing for granted. "It's going to be competitive," Linehan said. "Claude hasn't been able to go; he's gone some this camp. He's still got the wrist issue. Richie had been working real good there, and then he gets the hand thing."


    Rams | Conklin hired
    Sun, 11 Jun 2006 07:03:49 -0700

    Rams | Kennedy happier now that Kollar has moved on
    Sun, 11 Jun 2006 06:55:33 -0700

    Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams DT Jimmy Kennedy is happier these days now that defensive line coach Bill Kollar has moved on. "It's a different environment," Kennedy said. "When you love coming to work every day, it just makes your job that much more fun." His play didn't support his status as a first-round draft choice, due at least to some degree to his oil-and-water relationship with the leather-lunged Kollar. "I'm not bashing the guy, because I know what he was trying to get out of me," Kennedy said. "But his teaching technique isn't for everyone." New defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has been happy with Kennedy so far. "The guy works hard, and he has more speed than I realized. He's smart, he doesn't make a lot of mistakes, and he listens, said Haslett. He's going to be a heck of a player." Nose tackle is a new position for Kennedy and the learning process for him is well underway.




    Rams | Offensive line has to run after practice
    Sun, 11 Jun 2006 06:25:00 -0700

    Steve Korte, of the News-Democrat, reports the St. Louis Rams offensive linemen ran sprints after practice as offensive line coach Paul Boudreau's punishment for jumping offsides. "I've always thought that it was a good thing within the group to have some kind of a penalty," Linehan said. "One thing we've really addressed is the pre-snap penalties that were a problem for this team a year ago. We're really putting the hammer down when we don't do a good job."

    Rams | Fisk to be part of team's defensive tackle rotation
    Sun, 11 Jun 2006 06:21:12 -0700

    Steve Korte, of the News-Democrat, reports the St. Louis Rams plan to use DL Jason Fisk as part of their defensive tackle rotation along with starting DTs Jimmy Kennedy and La'Roi Glover. "We brought him in here because of his ability to be a backup nose and play when we need some help in there," Rams head coach Scott Linehan said. "When people are trying to run the ball at us, he gives us some depth on the line." Fisk is happy to be with the Rams. "It was a great opportunity for me to come in here and play with a team that has all the talent to do whatever we want." Fisk said he was glad to be playing in a 4-3 defense after playing nose tackle in a 3-4 defense with the Browns and the San Diego Chargers.
