Five Rams showed support for the Ferguson, Missouri, protests in 2014, but Jeff Fisher doesn't expect his players to protest the national anthem.
Los Angeles Teams
The Browns terminated the contracts of defensive end Paul Kruger and quarterback Austin Davis.
Welcome to Kickoff Week. Here are the most pressing issues and compelling storylines in the Pac-12 this season.
What's the best game of the opening weekend? What's the individual matchup we're most looking forward to? Our experts tackles these and more pressing questions as we get ready for the season.
Sunday's longest home runs
Wilson Ramos' 450-foot blast paced the competition, but Josh Donaldson stole the show with his three-homer performance. Jefry Marte also connected for a deep blast against his former team, the Tigers.
Los Angeles Rams DE Robert Quinn added a souvenir from Denver's Von Miller, a jersey that will adorn a wall in Quinn's soon-to-be-built "man cave."
If WR Nelson Spruce starts practicing this coming week, it could be enough to secure his spot, with the Rams worried that another team will pluck him.
Rams receiver Pharoh Cooper and cornerback E.J. Gaines suffered injuries in Saturday's preseason loss that could keep them out of the regular-season opener, said coach Jeff Fisher.
Diana Taurasi scored 26 points and made two free throws with 8 seconds left to ice the Phoenix Mercury's 70-66 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday night.

Rams WR Pharoh Cooper has a shoulder injury and will miss "a few weeks," Jeff Fisher said. Will miss at least the opener, it seems.
The Dodgers reportedly placed Yasiel Puig on waivers Sunday, opening the possibility that the team could trade the recently demoted outfielder.
Marte leaves his mark on Anibal Sanchez
Jefry Marte tagged the Tigers right-hander for a 442-foot blast on Sunday, the longest Sanchez has given up since 2011, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.
To the Los Angeles Rams, Tavon Austin's value can't be measured by prototypical wide receiver standards. Which is why they paid him.
Seager proves looks can deceive
Corey Seager, 22, has played well beyond his years this season. Seager's .322 average is good for third among qualified NL hitters, and he has 23 home runs this season. No wonder he's the favorite for NL Rookie of the Year. Baby-faced big leaguers
Brock Stewart and four relievers combined on a four-hitter and Andrew Toles scored on a fielder's choice in the eighth inning, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Chicago Cubs 1-0 on Sunday.

Here is what Yasiel Puig just told me about being put on waivers by the Dodgers: "It didn't surprise me. It's common for all teams to put players on [revocable] waivers. I'm just here waiting to see what the future holds. I'm here in Oklahoma giving my best and preparing to have an opportunity, whether that is with another team or to stay with the Dodgers. I have to wait the pertinent time with the waivers and then wait to see what decision [the Dodgers] make. I'm here to play baseball. That's part of the business of baseball. I came from Cuba to the US to play baseball."
