LOS ANGELES (AP) – Greg Gaines probably should have checked his posts on Tuesday morning after returning home after his Los Angeles Rams’ energizing victory over NFC West leaders Arizona.
When the nose plating arrived at the Rams’ training complex for the usual off-day treatment, he said he quickly found out what he missed when ordered to leave the property .
“Like the apocalypse is happening or something,” he said with a smile.
The complex had been closed after the team’s latest outbreak of COVID-19 infections, and the Rams did not return to anything like training before Saturday. In the five days in between, the Rams’ game against Seattle was postponed until Tuesday night and at least 27 players spent time on the reserve / COVID-19 roster, which stood at 21 on Saturday after two additions. and six reinstatements, including wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and running back Darrell Henderson.
“I didn’t think it would grow that big,” Gaines said. “I didn’t think it would be as big as it is.”
The Rams (9-4) are scrambling to prepare for the Seahawks with all available players at SoFi Stadium, but they seem confident they can get into what will be two games in six days, including their trip to Minnesota on December 19. . 26.
“We had to make the proper adjustments on the fly, and it was tough to do,” said quarterback Matthew Stafford. “I don’t think it’s something we’ve seen coming, the coaches, the players or the league, on such a scale. But we’re going to move forward and hopefully do a better job in the future to get things ready when they happen. “
The outbreak brought days of uncertainty for Rams players and coaches, who had just achieved the most energizing victory of their season. Instead of preparing to build on that momentum against the Seahawks (5-8), Los Angeles had to focus on testing, holding Zoom meetings and developing backup plans for a myriad of possibilities for their future. close.
When the Rams did a light practice on Saturday, assistant coaches and support staff had to swing into action so the Rams had enough body to lead coach Sean McVay’s activities.
McVay called it an “incredibly moving week”.
“You have a nice win on Monday, then on Tuesday you wake up and find that a handful of players have tested positive,” McVay said. “It’s been a whirlwind the last few days as we try to figure out where you know the numbers are only going to get worse. You realize how easily this can spread through our team or others until this new variant. … It’s so hard because when you’re playing a game and there’s so much cross exposure with what we’re doing, and you get positive delays from guys.
McVay said the Rams had some idea of how their outbreak started, but without providing details, he believes the rapid spread was linked to conditions around their resort in Ventura County.
“I don’t know if it could have been avoided or not, but I believe from the bottom of my heart that our players weren’t making bad decisions or doing anything with malicious intent,” said McVay.
McVay said he expects several other players to drop off the reserve / COVID roster over the next two days before the Rams are due to make their final roster for Tuesday’s game. But until he knows for sure, McVay and his team must anticipate any eventuality – for example, multiple contingency plans depending on whether starting right tackle Rob Havenstein and relief tackle Joseph Noteboom are taken out of the lineup. listing.
“What I’ve learned is to have a plan for the guys that we know are available for sure,” McVay said. “And then some of these guys, let’s have a plan if they keep going in the right direction.”
NOTES: C Brian Allen was entered as a full participant in training after missing most of the last two games with a knee injury. If Allen is healthy, the Rams could fill their potential hole in the right tackle by moving substitute C Coleman Shelton to guard and moving one of their starting goalies to tackle. … DT Aaron Donald is listed with a knee injury in the Rams injury report, but the three-time AP Defensive Player of the Year is scheduled to play on Tuesday, McVay said.
