It's unlikely Sean McVay will play starters Saturday in a Week 2 preseason game against the Oakland Raiders, which means backup quarterback Sean Mannion should have plenty of opportunity to redeem himself after a poor performance in Week 1. McVay said he'd look for "crisp execution" from the fourth-year pro. "Sean would be the first to tell you he should play better, but I think there were a lot of things that went into it," McVay said Thursday after the final training camp practice at UC Irvine. "Myself, obviously, some of the guys catching the football, protecting up front. So I just think you want to see more sharp, crisp execution, doing a good job recognizing what they're doing and then just being able to play sound football."

The Rams wrapped up training camp at UC Irvine on Thursday with morning practice that had a walk-thru portion as well as some brief 11-on-11 and 7-on-7 play. The standout player of the day was tight end Tyler Higbee. Higbee demonstrated improvement in the passing game throughout camp, but on Thursday he caught back-to-back passes for touchdowns during 7-on-7 red zone drills. The first was an impressive snag over Marqui Christina and Isaiah Johnson. Higbee emerge as a nice red zone target for Jared Goff this season.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco and head coach Anthony Lynn will fly to Stockton, California on Friday, the team's off day, for the memorial service of Faye Spanos, the wife of Chargers owner Alex Spanos, who passed last week at the age of 92. The Chargers will continue to wear a pink decal on their helmets with Faye's name on it to honor her memory for the rest of the season. Pink was Faye's favorite color. The Chargers will have a moment of silence for Faye before the team's first home game against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday.

Don't really get the sense anything is imminent between the Rams and Aaron Donald. They might be closer in numbers, but it doesn't appear like they're close enough for either side to give in. The staredown continues.
