    Quick notes from afternoon practice

    Just back from this afternoon's practice, a couple of possible scoops...
    - Jacob Bell was at the afternoon practice in street clothes. I'm assuming he's agreed to a new deal.
    - Danario Alexander rode the cart off the field at the end of practice. I didn't see a specific incident where he might have been injured. Crossing my fingers it was nothing, but hate to see DX on a cart anyway.

    Longer writeup on the way but those are the juicy bits.

    Great.. That news worries me of DX in a cart.

    Well, that doesn't sound good.

    Thanks for the updates, Mike! Really appreciate hearing from someone who was there!

    Feels like a precautionary move... he'd had a collision with Craig Dahl in 11-on-11.
    I didn't put two and two together.

    I read that same DX rumor on another Rams board and it was subsequently debunked.

    I really hope it's nothing serious. He's the guy I'm really worried about. If he can't stay healthy I feel like this might be his last shot.

    Re: Quick notes from afternoon practice

    OK, STLToday's reporting now that it was cramps.

    Sorry for the semi-false alarm.

    They should make a big yellow sign that says "It's just cramps" for anyone being carted off the field during training camp for just this reason

    read that Gilyard looked very, very good today. Said that he looks like a completely different player than last year. Hopefully that's the case because he has the talent to be a significant contributor and probably has more potential than any other wr on the roster(besides Sims Walker)

    It's only day 1 in training camp, let's see how he pans out in the preseason, then the regular season. But I'm glad to see improvement over the kid, even I'm one of the consensus who was ready to give up on him.

    oh I'm not too excited but was there ever even a glimmer of hope for Gilyard last year? We never even heard one positive report. Everything was either he's struggling with injuries, the playbook or with attitude. The fact that he started camp very well is at least something. I think we all agree that he's talented. Let's hope he can at least turn it somewhat around. Let's face it there have been hundreds of talented players to struggle mightily there first year in the league.

    Agree. I'd been pretty much ruling him out heading into training camp, but getting a better look at him today, you have to rule him back in.

    I read that there were several cramps in today's practice. I bet it was that way for most NFL teams.

    Better cramps than Hamstring pulls... there's been a bunch of those league wide. Brandon Chillar, Terrell Suggs.
    I believe!
