When the Los Angeles Rams officially start training camp on Saturday, July 23, one thing will be clear: they will be without star cornerback Jalen Ramsey when they return to UC Irvine.

The All-Pro is not a contract denier. However, due to his shoulder, he is unlikely to appear in team practices.

Ramsey was among four members of the defending Super Bowl champions who were named to the PUP list on Friday, July 22 – nearly 24 hours before the Rams start the 2022 camp season. were set. Greg Beacham of the Associated Press reported all four names at 2:13 p.m. Pacific Time:

The perennial Pro Bowler underwent first shoulder surgery on June 21. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Ramsey played the 2021 season with tears in both shoulders as the Rams went in pursuit of the Vince Lombardi trophy. Despite the complaints, Ramsey put together a third All-Pro campaign, this time ending as the Super Bowl champion. Ramsey was in high spirits after his surgery as he shared this post-op selfie photo with his kids:

Ramsey’s expected absence sparked a reaction from head coach Sean McVay when speaking to reporters on Friday afternoon.

“He’s fine. He really attacked rehab. He’s feeling good,” McVay said of Ramsey.

McVay himself was part of the group who asked Ramsey how he was doing undergoing stabbing over the summer.

“Of course, when we operated on him, the most important thing was how he felt about it, but then with the goal of really tackling rehab and most importantly, to be ready for September 8 to go,” McVay said.

In all likelihood, Ram fans attending open training camp drills at UCI’s Crawford Field will not see Ramsey in pads or helmet for most of camp. However, McVay told LA media that he and the Rams want to approach his recovery with sanity and don’t feel like he’s being pushed back onto the field.

“We will assess that progress wisely for him,” McVay said.

Again, Ramsey will not be the only name on the PUP list.

The Rams announced that three other players will be on the same roster alongside the multiple-time Pro Bowler, according to the team’s website. Two of those represent the 2022 rookie class. Here’s who else will be with PUP when training camp begins:

Travin Howard: The inside linebacker is dealing with a groin injury. Howard is probably best remembered for intercepting Jimmy Garoppolo with a tap to seal the 20-17 NFC Championship game win over the San Francisco 49ers. McVay added that Howard may need surgery.

Kyren Williams: One of the most valuable offensive draft picks of the 2022 draft, the fifth-rounder underwent foot surgery on June 7 and is not yet cleared to participate in football-related activities. He injured his foot during a minicamp training session in Thousand Oaks.

Quentin Lake: The sixth rounder and son of former Pro Bowl safetyman Carnell Lake is also on the list with an undisclosed injury. Lake previously struggled with wrist and leg injuries in his last two seasons at UCLA.

The Rams’ first open practice session for fans is scheduled for Friday, July 29. Ticket information can be found here. Training is from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m
