    Bits and pieces:
    Defensive tackle Ryan Pickett missed Sunday afternoon's practice because of illness.

    Rookie S Jason Shivers made a leaping interception of a Marc Bulger pass intended for Kevin Curtis in seven-on-seven drills. S Justin Lucas also picked off a Chris Chandler toss intended for Mike Furrey.

    Curtis turned in the catch of the day, a diving grab in the back of the end zone that ended with him skidding into the plastic fencing that encircles the fields.

    Overheard: "The days are the days, whether they're the dog days, good days, good days, dog days, dog days, dog days, good days, good days - whatever you want to call it. It's still training camp." - WR Torry Holt, when asked whether the "dog days"
    of camp had set in yet.

    "I'll be happy to leave Macomb. It's boring out here." - CB Jerametrius Butler.

    Bits and pieces

    DE Leonard Little returned to practice Saturday. He had been gone since Tuesday
    because of the death of his grandmother in North Carolina.

    - because of injuries: TE Cam Cleeland (hamstring), WR Kevin Curtis (shin
    splints), DE Bernard Holsey (knee), LB Tony Newson (hamstring) and OT Grant
    Williams (ankle).

    Rookie Anthony Hargrove, who is making the switch from DE to DT, was banished
    to the locker room by defensive line coach Bill Kollar with about 30 minutes
    left in practice.

    Overheard

    "We can always use 'Big O' around here. When he's ready, he'll
    come."
    - C Andy McCollum, on Pace.
    "I'm on that dang rabbit diet." - G Chris Dishman, who
    reported to camp at 366 pounds but has dropped close to 20.

    game action in San Diego.

    different ways on a particular route to beat a guy."

    Injured: CB Jerametrius Butler (hamstring), LB Brandon Chillar (shoulder), TE Cam Cleeland (hamstring), CB Robert Cromartie (hamstring), CB Travis Fisher (knee), RB Lamar Gordon (ankle), DE Anthony Hargrove (knee and ankle), FB Erik Jensen (knee), DT Jimmy Kennedy (foot), S Tom Knight (finger), G Ryan Schau (back), LB Brandon Spoon (hamstring), OT Kyle Turley (back), C Dave Wohlabaugh (hip).

    Absent: OT Orlando Pace (contract).

    Today's schedule: The Rams and the Chicago Bears will practice together twice, at 8:10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Times are subject to change. For up-to-date practice information, call toll-free 1-866-726-7226. Practices are free and open to the public.

    Bits and pieces:

    RB Lamar Gordon skipped Thursday's workout. He's had chronic ankle problems and has been gimpy at times during camp.

    RB Steven Jackson, the Rams' top draft pick, appears to be adapting quickly, his effectiveness seemingly increasing day by day.

    Damione Lewis and Ryan Pickett have been solid in the middle of the defensive line.

    Bears WR Justin Gage, a former All-Big 12 performer at Missouri, is nursing a lower back injury.

    Bears QB Rex Grossman sailed a pass 75 yards in the air, overthrowing his intended receiver, in Thursday's drills.

    Overheard:

    "I can only say this: I've never come across a coach like him. I think he'll be very successful."
    - S Aeneas Williams, on first-year Bears coach Lovie Smith, the former Rams defensive coordinator.

    "Preseason was the last time I've played completely healthy. So, it's been almost a year. I feel like I've got to get out there and show them that I can still contribute."
    - Second-year WR Kevin Curtis, who missed nearly all of last season with a broken leg.

    Bits and pieces:
    After Saturday morning's scrimmage with the Chicago Bears, the Rams had the rest of the day and most of Sunday off. They returned Sunday evening for meetings.
    QB Chris Chandler and DE Sean Moran, offseason free-agent pickups, are in their second stints with the Rams. Chandler played for the Los Angeles Rams in 1994 and Moran was with the team in 2000 and 2001.


    Overheard:
    "He looks like the Marshall of old out here, but we'll see. We're really cautious with him. He feels so good, and when he's like that we try not to put a damper on it. But we also just want him to be cautious and take this thing in stride." - Coach Mike Martz, on frisky RB Marshall Faulk.
    "I felt comfortable hanging the whistle over my neck and the stopwatch. That was pretty fun, telling kids what to do." - C-G Chris Dishman, on his duties as a high school coach in Lincoln, Neb., before Martz persuaded him to "unretire" and report to Rams camp.
