The Rams decided to give cornerback Jalen Ramsey a workout even though he’s still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.
The franchise stated it was going to place Jalen Ramsey on the PUP list on Friday. However, Sean McVay decided getting him out on the practice field would be beneficial.
“Doctors cleared him in a limited fashion,” McVay said. “That enables him to participate in a lot of the jog-throughs, the above-the-neck stuff.”

“And to be able to have him out here with his teammates with all the different things that we ask of him, he felt good about that. We felt good about that. And so I think that’s what’s best for our football team. That’s why we kind of pivoted in that direction.”
As well as that, quarterback Matthew Stafford threw his first passes since Super Bowl LVI on Sunday.
Stafford had been recovering from an elbow issue throughout the Rams’ spring workouts. “It feels good to get out there, just knock some rust off it a little bit, stress it and see how it reacts,” Stafford said.
