Most Rams starters skipping game in Hawaii

Lindsey Thiry

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Rams depart Thursday for Hawaii, where they will play the Dallas Cowboys in a preseason game, but quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley will be among approximately 20 starters who will be left behind.

"Our consideration is always what we feel is in the best interest of the players," coach Sean McVay said Thursday. "For the most part, the guys that will not be participating in that game, to have them [not] make that travel, things of that nature, we feel is in the best interest of those guys."

Defensive tackle Aaron Donald and cornerback Marcus Peters are the only starters who are expected to make the trip, though they will not play in the game on Saturday at Aloha Stadium.

There goes all of the Gurley's Nay Sayers about the reason why he's not going,,, because of his knees... :lol: :lol: :lol:

There is no reason for the Starters to go,,, they made the team.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is what good Coaching does for his Vets... No need to travel,,, save your bodies for the real season.... :D :D :D

Who would say Gurley isn't travelling because of his knees? No one who knows the team. He has an arthritic knee, but those can be managed (in fact he had it last year and ran well for most of it). The trick is to avoid those kinds of flare-ups (like in December) where it leads to a pain and inflammation episode. Whether or not he went to Hawaii would have nothing to do with that.

Ok we all know Gurley has an arthritic knee,

but the nay sayers were over reading this and making it a big deal on why Gurley is not going,,,, Well McVay cleared that up by saying most of his Vets are not going.... they are staying home working out on Fri and Sun...

Why travel when they don't need to....

The Vets that want to go and are not playing,,, its a one day vacation in HI for them to hit the beach... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gurley has been working out at camp, and he looks sharp... and he even said he knees feels fine,,,

So I'm not getting worked up during a pre season when we already know that Gurley will not play...

I really like this, I think players on most teams would rather get to Hawaii and have a day of play, but our guys are staying behind and having 2 days of workouts. I also like that a couple of key starters are going to keep the troops honest out there. Says a lot about this team, that we already know though!!
