THOUSANDS of OAKS, Calif. – Coach Sean McVay expects a wide audience Odell Beckham Jr. and the person lining the outside Von Miller to increase the role when Los Angeles Rams play Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
“There’s more, hopefully,” McVay said on Friday when asked if he expected to hear more from the veteran duo in their second appearance since joining the Rams, who are 7-3 and goodbye.
The Rams will need a joint approach against Aaron Rodgers and 8-3 Packers at Lambeau Field as they tried to end a two-game losing streak.
Beckham agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million deal with the Rams four days before he was fit and played 15 of 55 tackles in a week 10, 31-10 lost San Francisco 49ers. The eighth-year professional caught two passes in 18 yards and was targeted for the third, but a deep throw from the midfield Matthew Stafford was blocked because Beckham appeared to have broken the route.
“Odell [is] McVay said.
The Rams did not practice on Thursday because of high winds at their training facility, but instead held a walkout. McVay noted that more physical reps were added to Friday’s schedule to atone and said that extra training could help Beckham.
“It helps because he’s starting to pick up the pace mentally,” McVay said. “You have no doubt how important those physical representations are and the relationship he and Matthew is continuing to develop and so because we’re going to be doing a little more representation today. , we would end up with that money. we would do in a normal week, so that would be a good thing, but he did a great job.”
Beckham, who has been kept under 30 yards in five of his six games played, said he has spent the bye week focusing on his books and fitness, which has taken a toll. due to lack of routine after his last match with Cleveland Browns on October 31st.
“I definitely feel like I’m not in the flow that I usually do with a regular schedule,” Beckham said. “So just try to get back there and find my way back to where I know I can.”
Stafford said he was impressed with what Beckham was able to capture in his short time with the team.
“Nine times out of 10, he broke the meeting with full confidence, knowing what he was going to do, which is great for me as a midfielder who can do his job well. himself,” Stafford said.
Miller, who was acquired in a blockbuster deal with Dancer broncos prior to the trade deadline earlier this month, was out of action during his first game in Los Angeles as he continued to recover from an ankle sprain, so the three-time All-Pro also debuted first. when saying goodbye to the 49ers.
Miller played 45 of 68 shots and scored two tackles, including one winning.
McVay said: “Von did very well, played very well. “I think he’s going to be much healthier, a lot fresher bye bye and give his ankle a few more days to keep making progress and walk in the right direction without any hitch. over the past few weeks.”
With the Rams’ goodbye coinciding with the Broncos’ goodbye, Miller said it came at the right time,
“I feel pretty good, I feel a bit more comfortable with my books, my ankles are a lot stronger,” says Miller. “So goodbye week was great.”
When asked to clarify how his ankle, where he sprained in Week 7, feels, Miller said it was something he hadn’t even thought of.
“It’s an unfounded cause,” Miller said of the injury. “What we did was perfect by waiting a week, playing a week and then saying goodbye a week later. Just cleaning up some stuff, so it’s really a groundless person and I really didn’t think about that.”
In eight games this season, Miller has 4.5 times sacked.
