(FootballStL) - Despite some afternoon showers on Day 2 of training camp, the Rams still practiced outdoors.
New Tight End Jared Cook is an imposing presence when he lines up in the slot. Standing at six foot five inches tall and weighing 248 pounds, Cook displays great speed for a man of his size. He also catches the ball away from his body extremely well.
Top draft pick Tavon Austin was targeted by Sam Bradford on a number of plays in the red zone drills.
Backup quarterback Kellen Clemens received the majority of reps at quarterback for the second half of practice.
The catch of the day was made by rookie wide receiver and Lindenwood University alumnus Andrew Helmick, who made a one-handed circus catch in the corner of the end zone during red zone drills.
After practice, Coach Jeff Fisher was pleased with the defense.
"They're not making a lot of mistakes. The defense made a lot of plays. So far, so good. "
Practice ended on a light note when Cortland Finnegan received a plate of whip cream to the face courtesy of teammates Chris Long, William Hayes and Trumaine Johnson.
