Can Josh Rosen's play catch up to his voice?

Josh Rosen is not shy about voicing his opinions and he elicits a wide range of them with both his comments and his play. But NFL decision-makers are mostly concerned with one question: Is he a franchise quarterback?

Rams injury report: Several corners were down, including Kayvon Webster, Nickell Robey-Coleman and Mike Jordan. Webster has a bum ankle, but Sean McVay said none of the injuries at that position are serious. The Rams are bringing free agent Leodis McKelvin in for a workout tomorrow nonetheless.

Best play from Rams camp today: It was the very first play of 11-on-11. Sammy Watkins ran a post route. Jared Goff's throw was zipping towards him, and at the very last second, Watkins sprung his hands up and came down with the ball. Goff couldn't help but express awe. "You try not to, but then kind of turn around at everyone like, 'Everyone see that?'"

Trumaine Johnson, on why he has put it on himself to match up against Sammy Watkins in camp: "He's no regular receiver. That's Sammy Watkins. ... You gotta like competition, and I love competition. So of course I'm going to go out there and match up with the best guys."

New Rams WR Sammy Watkins got a lot more involved today. Made a couple of nice connections with Jared Goff towards the middle of the field, and another one about 20 yards near the far side. Trumaine Johnson was constantly matched up against Watkins. At one point, he picked Goff as the underneath guy in zone coverage. Said Goff on Watkins: "He's been sharper than I expected. ... He's been on it; he's been sharp."
