Los Angeles Rams Announce New Practice Facility – NFL Tracker

Stick with for the latest news and notes from the Los Angeles Rams and around the NFL.

NOV 14 NEW HOME The Rams are continuing to make Los Angeles their home despite having been back in the city since 2016. The Rams announced on Tuesday during a celebration at the Topanga Village that they will be moving to their new practice facility for the 2024 season, which will be located at the corner of West Oxnard Street and Canoga Avenue in Woodland Hills.

“This is a monumental day for the Los Angeles Rams as we can now call Woodland Hills and the City of Los Angeles our home, …” Rams CEO Kevin Demoff said. “Since bringing the Rams home to Los Angeles, Stan Kroenke’s commitment to this region is unmatched, and we are excited to expand our footprint and deepen our impact across the city.”

The announcement comes after Rams owner Stan Kroenke acquired nearly 100 acres of land in the Woodland Hills area a year ago.

NOV 13 SEAHAWKS FAVORED The Seattle Seahawks are coming off of a win on Sunday vs. the Washington Commanders, moving to 6-3 on the season, and in a tie on top of the NFC West.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Rams are coming off a bye week after dropping their third straight game in a loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Despite their vastly different trajectories, however, the Seahawks have opened up as only slight favorites over the Rams at -2.5. The over/under is set at 44.5.

The Rams and Seahawks will kick off on Sunday at 1:25 p.m. PT.

NOV 9 HOW MUCH IS WENTZ PAID? Contract details have emerged for new Los Angeles Rams quarterback signee Carson Wentz.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, Wentz is receiving a base salary of $1.165 million paired with a signing bonus of $150,000. His salary, however, is prorated over the nine weeks left in the NFL season, so his total payout reaches $732,500. If he is cut, the Rams are only on the hook for the $150,000 signing bonus.

That’s not a lot of money in the NFL quarterback market, but this is Wentz’s first opportunity of the season after being released by the Washington Commanders, so he may take whatever he can get.

Nov. 6, GONE RYPIEN After a disastrous start against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams waived backup quarterback Brett Rypien on Tuesday, according to reports.

In his lone start for the team, Rypien completed 13 of his 28 passes for 130 yards, with one interception. He also fumbled twice, one of which was lost to Green Bay.

The move comes shortly after the Rams signed veteran and former No. 2 overall draft pick Carson Wentz Tuesday afternoon.

The Rams also made three additional moves on Tuesday, waiving running back Myles Gaskin and defensive tackle Cory Durden and releasing quarterback Dresser Winn.

PUKAS RECORD, NOV. 5 PUKAS RECORD, NOV. 5 Puka Nacua now holds the Rams rookie record for most receptions in a season (63).

Nacua secured the mark on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, and the record was previously held by his teammate Cooper Kupp.

NOV 1 BABY MCVAY Rams head coach Sean McVay and his wife, Veronika Khomyn, have welcomed their first child into the world. … and now they are showing off Baby McVay.

“So glad I got to meet my pumpkin a week early,” Veronika writes on social media. “I don’t think I could’ve waited any longer!! Our Halloween baby is a week old today already.”

OCT 29 RAMS SCORE After a disaster of a first half for the Los Angeles Rams against the Dallas Cowboys, in which they trailed 33-3 at one point in the second quarter, things are starting to look up for L.A.

Building off of their touchdown to end the first half, the Rams got into the end zone once again, with Matthew Stafford hitting Ben Skowronek for a touchdown.

The Rams would then cash in on the two-point conversion as well, with Tutu Atwell passing to Stafford off of a reverse to convert the try.

The Rams now trail 33-17 early in the third quarter.

OCT 25 BABY MCVAY ARRIVES After a couple of weeks of suspense, the son of Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay and his wife Veronika Khomyn was born on Wednesday evening, per a tweet from the team’s official Twitter account.

“Delivered Jordan John McVay,” the Rams’ Twitter account wrote.

The newest addition of the McVay family kept his father’s promise when Sean told the media ahead of the Rams’ 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers that his son “knows better” than to be born during a game.

OCT 24 MAHER RELEASED After a gutwrenching 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams have released kicker Brett Maher, the team announced.

Maher was a major reason behind the loss to the Steelers, after missing two field goals and an extra point, which if made, would have potentially been the difference in the game.

Before Sunday, Maher was 16 of 20 (80 percent) on the season and was a perfect 4 of 4 in the Rams win over the Cardinals the week before.

Maher has been known to have his issues in the kick game before, however, making just 66 percent of his kicks in 2019 before being released by the Dallas Cowboys.

OCT 20 HENDERSON ACTIVE After losing their top two backs to injuries last week vs. the Arizona Cardinals, the Los Angeles Rams signed veterans Darrell Henderson and Myles Gaskin this week.

Now, Henderson has been promoted to the active roster and could see action on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Sean McVay said Friday.

Rookie Zach Evans was expected to see the majority of carries heading into the week but with Henderson familiar with the offense, that could change.

I liked what I saw from all four (running backs),” Sean McVay. “Darrell (Henderson) came back in. He’s a guy that’s going to be up and active this week. He’s done a great job of being able to quickly re-acclimate himself back to a lot of the things that we’ve done. He is taken good care of himself.”

OCT 18 CARDINALS ACTIVATE MURRAY AND BAKER The Arizona Cardinals could have two key starters return on Sunday when they travel to Lumen Field and take on the Seattle Seahawks. According to Ari Meirov, the Cardinals have designated both quarterback Kyler Murray and safety Budda Baker for return from the injured reserve Wednesday.

Murray, the former No. 1 overall pick, later confirmed this report via his own Twitter account that he would be returning to practice for the first time since being sidelined with a torn ACL in the Cardinals’ Week 12 loss to the New England Patriots last season.

Additionally, Baker is set to return from a hamstring injury that he suffered in practice just a few days before the Cardinals’ Week 2 loss to the New York Giants.

OCT 15 HEKKER HEADBUTT Former Los Angeles Rams punter Johnny Hekker is going viral on Sunday afternoon, after headbutting Miami Dolphins linebacker Cameron Goode.

The incident occurred with 9:55 to go in the fourth quarter, with the game already well in hand for Miami. The Panthers would go on to lose 42-21.

Hekker, who is in his second year with the Panthers, is averaging 48.3 yards per punt.

Hekker spent 10 years with the Rams both in St. Louis and Los Angeles, averaging 46.7 yards per punt.

OCT 11 PRACTICE SQUAD ADDITION After promoting Austin Trammel to the 53-man roster last week, the Los Angeles Rams filled the vacant spot on their practice with second-year linebacker Olakunle Fatukasi, according to the team’s Twitter account.

Fatukasi, the former Rutgers Scarlet Knight, has already spent time with four different teams prior to joining the Rams’ practice squad despite just being in his second season as a professional.

After spending last season as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster, where he played in 13 games, he bounced around last offseason, spending time with the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, and Kansas City Chiefs, most recently before he was cut.

OCT 8 STAFFORD TO TUTU The Los Angeles Rams might not have gotten off to an ideal start on Sunday vs. the Philadelphia Eagles, falling into an early 7-0 hole.

However, with the newly restored Cooper Kupp back in the lineup, the Rams were able to even things up rather quickly, with Kupp helping to lead a response scoring drive, ending with a Tutu Atwell touchdown catch from Matthew Stafford.

Already in the first quarter vs. Philadelphia, Kupp has five receptions for 56 yards on six targets, while Stafford has completed 7 of 10 passes for 65 yards.

OCT 6 KUPP RETURN OFFICIAL The Los Angeles Rams fans got fantastic news on Friday, with coach Sean McVay announcing that star wide receiver Cooper Kupp will officially return to the lineup vs. the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Kupp has missed the team’s first four games after being placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury but returned to practice on Wednesday.

“He said he’s feeling really good,” McVay told the media Wednesday. “I trust him. He’s a guy that really knows his body really well, very experienced player and so there’ll be an ongoing dialogue.”

Kupp missed the majority of last season with an injury as well.

In replacement of Kupp, rookie Puka Nacua has become a league-wide sensation, leading the NFL in receptions (39) and targets (52). He also ranks third in the league in receiving yards with 501.

OCT 1 KYREN EARLY TDs Kyren Williams has his second touchdown of the day as the Rams lead the Colts early, 14-0 … and this is the running back’s third multi-TD game in the first four weeks of the season.
