An undisclosed number of players were diagnosed with flulike symptoms, and since the Rams suck away, they just cancelled practice.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo would not say how many players had the illness but said five or six players had flulike symptoms, and added that other players had reported symptoms the last few weeks. He anticipated the Rams would return to practice on Friday with a workout that will incorporate some of the elements missed on Thursday.
“It’s really more of a precaution than anything,” Spagnuolo said. “We’re checking everybody, we’re just being careful.” –Y! News.
The Rams host the Texans on Sunday, so it’s a wonder that they practice at all. I mean, they’re 1-12 on the year. What kind of magic could they possibly weave together in three days?
