Watkins says he had jitters in Rams debut (0:41)

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Sammy Watkins is wearing No. 2, his number from Clemson, but will have to change it for the regular season. Receivers can only wear 80-89 or 10-19. Watkins wants to keep it in the teens. He wore 14 in Buffalo, which now belongs to backup QB Sean Mannion. Watkins hasn't approached Mannion about 14 yet.

New Rams WR Sammy Watkins liked the way the offense flowed Saturday, but still can't play as fast as he would like.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson, on Aaron Donald still holding out: "We'd love to have him here, but at the same time, I know what he's going through. I've been through it. It's a business at the end of the day. He's a very valuable player. Hopefully he gets what he's asking for."

OLB Robert Quinn and CB Kayvon Webster still have a chance of playing in Saturday's preseason game, but ILB Mark Barron will not and will thus begin the season without playing in a game. Webster's ankle was bothering him, so he didn't practice. Quinn was going to practice, but got a charley horse from Michael Brockers during a walk-through and stayed away. Tavon Austin (hamstring) did some agility drills on his own.

Rams coach Sean McVay says he has "a lot of respect" for Mike Martz. "You look at the production of offenses that he's been a part of. ... I don't know Coach Martz; I met him real quick at the combine a handful of years ago. But I have a lot of respect for what he's accomplished and can't say anything but good things about what he's done and what kind of coach he is."

Rams coach Sean McVay was asked about Mike Martz's comments that he only got the job to be "a buddy" to Jared Goff. Part of his response: "The bottom line is this: I've never been a head coach before; I haven't won a game. I haven't done anything. So it's going to be a great challenge." Full response in the video.

The Rams signed DB Tyquwan Glass and OLB Willie Mays III (no relation to the Hall of Fame center fielder). Rams need depth at those positions with Kayvon Webster, Nickell Robey-Coleman, Mike Jordan, Robert Quinn and Samson Ebukam out. Glass (Fresno State) and Mays (Tiffin University) went undrafted. DE Caushaud Lyons and RB De'Mard Llorens were waived.

Tavon Austin is "more than likely" going to be out again this week and will thus miss the third preseason game. Rams coach Sean McVay nonetheless said "signs are very positive" with his progress from the hamstring injury. Here he is catching passes from the Jugs machine.
