Plenty to be proud of in Rams’ third preseason game
Because Saffold is switching positions from left tackle, he needs as many game repetitions as he can get, and he had not gotten many after injuring his shoulder on his second play of the preseason opener. The Rams initially thought Saffold might miss all of the second and third preseason games, but he was back for No. 3 and played well.
When Cortland Finnegan stopped Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman, Ogletree came up with a big play. He snatched the football and ran 13 yards for a touchdown.
“Typically, guys don’t lose their jobs because of injury,” Fisher said. “But we’ll re-evaluate when Stew comes back.”
“We’re going to play the guys that need to play,” he said. “If guys have had adequate snaps throughout the preseason, we may back down a little bit.”
