Summary from the Final Week of Camp
Neither Matthew Stafford nor John Wolford took a preseason snap, illustrating their entrenched positions as the No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. Stafford didn’t need the game reps for Rams fans to be excited about the season ahead; the veteran had an excellent summer and looked reinvigorated at the helm of Sean McVay’s dynamic passing offense. Wolford has returned to practice after undergoing an emergency appendectomy early in camp, but the team knows what it has in the 25-year old.

General Manager Les Snead described Michel as a player who “runs from north to south with force.” Coach McVay added acquiring Michel was “an opportunity to acquire a really good player who has had a lot of success…He offers a physical presence to our room.
