St. Louis Rams rookies went through the first of a two-day refresher course ahead of veteran arrivals - and at least one of them making a bit of a fashion statement. Third-round pick Stedman Bailey, half of West Virginia wide receiver package with first-rounder Tavon Austin, ran patterns Monday clad in striped, multicolored socks.
Bailey joked to teammates that it was an homage to Bob Marley but said he just pulled them out of his equipment bag. Coach Jeff Fisher had no complaints after putting about three dozen players through conditioning drills and testing them on play retention.
Fisher said the rest of the team had already undergone physicals ahead of the official camp opening Thursday. The Rams worked out without center Barrett Jones, a fourth-round pick from Alabama still recovering from foot surgery.
Fisher expects Jones to be ready in a week or two.
