The California Cool of Jared Goff By Tim Keown

In the midst of a wild three-year career arc that has taken him from rookie bust to MVP candidate, the Rams quarterback has learned to enjoy the ride. How far can his surge lift LA? By Tim Keown

The Rams will honor their community events in Mexico City, which includes hospital visits, a 10K and the building of a playground. Rams COO Kevin Demoff, on not playing in Mexico: "I think ‘bittersweet' is a great word. We were really excited as an organization to play in Mexico. We requested to play in Mexico for our abroad game this year; we spent a lot of time working with the community and business leaders to host a great week, and get our fans excited and really build that fan base. ... On the other hand, for Southern California, what an unbelievable turn of events to be able to get potentially the game of the year here, on Monday night, in the Coliseum."

Rams officials are all over the place (Colorado Springs, Thousand Oaks, Playa Vista, working remotely), and their Agoura Hills ticket office is in an evacuation zone. They're scrambling to host a game in six days. But there aren't many other events going on in LA this weekend, which will help them secure concessions and security.

The NFL first raised concerns about the playing surface at Estadio Azteca in October, in the wake of a Shakira concert and a handful of soccer games. Rams COO Kevin Demoff saw the field alongside team and NFL officials then and said it seemed "very safe." But it only worsened thereafter, largely because of heavy rainfall. Field testers from all sides raised legitimate concerns on Monday and ultimately determined against playing in Mexico City. The Rams needed at least five days to get the Coliseum ready for Monday Night Football. Said Demoff: "Everybody just kind of needed the dropdead date. I think the NFL took all the information in, they processed it, and they made the right decision."

How about some team bonding: The Rams are attending tonight's Nuggets vs. Rockets game at the Pepsi Center in Denver. The Nuggets are owned by Kroenke Sports & Entertainment. The Rams are spending the week 75 miles south in Colorado Springs, where they had planned to train at altitude before playing the KC Chiefs in Mexico City. That game has now been moved to L.A., but the Rams will remain in Colorado until Saturday.

Important: The Rams will still wear their "Color Rush" uniforms on Monday night.

The Rams will be providing thousands of complimentary tickets for the Monday Night Football game against the Chiefs, which has moved from Mexico City to the L.A. Memorial Coliseum, to first responders and those who have been affected by the recent tragedies in Southern California.

Statement from the NFL on Chiefs-Rams moving from Mexico City to Los Angeles ...

Lindsey Thiry ESPN 

The Rams have designated WR Pharoh Cooper to return from injured reserve, the team announced. He will begin practicing this week. Cooper was placed on the IR after suffering an ankle injury in Week 1 that required surgery. Cooper's return comes after the Rams announced that Cooper Kupp tore his ACL last Sunday against the Seahawks and will be out the remainder of the season.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

If the Rams and Chiefs ultimately do not play in Mexico City, in all likelihood they will play Monday night at the Coliseum, then have a bye the following week, as scheduled. Seems unlikely that the game would be postponed or moved into a different window. Rams are waiting on the NFL. No deadline on when a decision must be reached by, but the team obviously needs time to work out the logistics.
