Todd Gurley (ACL surgery) will soon meet with Dr. James Andrews for a recheck of his surgically repaired knee.

The meeting will take place "in the next few weeks." Gurley's recovery is believed to have gone on free of setbacks, but that won't be officially determined until Dr. Andrews sees the knee. It's also possible when they meet that Gurley will be cleared for some activity before training camp, which of course would be excellent news for Gurley's chances of playing in Week 1.

Todd Gurley (ACL surgery) is hopeful of participating in Rams training camp, at least on a limited basis.

"That is definitely a goal that I'm shooting for," Gurley said at the NFL Rookie Symposium. "Just to be able to get out there and do at least some individual stuff. It's looking pretty realistic. This month I'll be in St. Louis rehabbing, so hopefully I can aim for (camp)." Gurley's status for Week 1 is still uncertain. He remains likely to open camp on the active/PUP list.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason has slimmed down to between 195 and 200 pounds.

Mason weighed 207 at his Combine in 2014, with forty times of 4.44 and 4.50. He's cut weight to add speed and burst even though he showed plenty of both during a promising rookie campaign. Regardless of weight, the Rams will have confidence in Mason as their feature back anytime Todd Gurley (ACL) sits. Gurley's timeline is unknown right now.

Only the first two years of Todd Gurley's contract are guaranteed.

That way the Rams are protected in case Gurley's torn ACL doesn't heal right. His $8.3 million signing bonus is still guaranteed. Gurley hasn't practiced yet and is racing the clock to be ready in time for September 13th's season opener against the Seahawks. His current 37.9 ADP on Yahoo! seems a bit generous.

New Rams OC Frank Cignetti said WR Tavon Austin "had a great offseason."

"It starts in the classroom. He’s learning. He’s paying attention. He’s bringing it to the practice field," Cignetti said. "You just see it from his route running. What a difference. His effort, his attention to details. Every day out there, the guy’s made plays." Cignetti will likely try to get Austin into space to utilize his theoretical playmaking ability, but Austin has shown nothing so far to suggest he will suddenly turn into an offensive weapon. He is well off the redraft radar.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher declined to say if Todd Gurley (knee) will be ready for training camp.

"I can’t predict that," Fisher acknowledged. "I know he’s doing well. He’ll rehab with us during the break. We’re just going to see how he progresses. If he’s not PUPed, then I think you could probably assume he’s going to play sooner than you think." Seven months removed from ACL surgery, Gurley is questionable for Week 1. He's being over-drafted in early re-draft leagues.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Rams and contract-year QB Nick Foles have had "initial talks" about a long-term deal.

Per RapSheet, the "target" date for an extension is ahead of Week 1. We're not sure why the Rams would want to do a long-term deal with Foles before he's even played a down for the team and is coming off a shoulder injury, but maybe they see a buy-low window here. That's if they believe Foles' 2013 season wasn't an aberration. (It was.) He's going to be a game manager-type for the Rams.

Rams LE Chris Long (ankle) is close to 100 percent.

Long returned for the last five games of 2014, but managed one sack over 238 snaps. He’s practicing fully at OTAs and says his ankle issues are behind him. Owed $14.3 million in 2016, Long should be in his final year with the Rams.

Barrett Jones, Tim Barnes and Demetrius Rhaney are splitting reps at center with the Rams' first-team offense.

With Scott Wells gone, the Rams are holding a true open competition. "We’re not going to make a decision real early. We’ll let them all play. We’re rotating them," coach Jeff Fisher said. "We’ll make that decision when somebody shows us he’s earned the job." A 2013 fourth-round pick, Jones has the draft pedigree to win the job, but injuries have limited him to just 23 career snaps. Barnes has more experience with four career starts, but he has struggled when asked to play significant snaps. A seventh-round pick last year, Rhaney spent his rookie season on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury in training camp.

Rams signed seventh-round ILB Bryce Hager and DE Martin Ifedi to four-year contracts.

The Rams traded Zac Stacy to move up for Hager, who projects to back up inside and at the WILL spot under Gregg Williams. Ifedi (6'3/275) will compete at strong-side end and defensive tackle.
Jun 12 - 9:05 PM

Rams signed No. 215 overall pick OG Cody Wichmann to a four-year contract.

A sixth-round pick, Wichmann was College Football Focus' No. 4 guard at Fresno State last year. Wichmann could open 2015 as Jamon Brown's backup.
Jun 12 - 8:57 PM

Rams signed No. 119 overall pick OL Andrew Donnal to a four-year contract.

Donnal made All-Big Ten honorable mention in his only year as Iowa’s right tackle, where he was the bookend to Brandon Scherff. He has the versatility to fill a swing role. Donnal should back up at multiple spots.
Jun 12 - 8:11 PM

The Rams are concerned about DT Nick Fairley being underweight.

Fairley has a history of conditioning issues, but needs to bulk up after dropping to 280 pounds this offseason. "Nick’s changed his lifestyle, changed his diet," coach Jeff Fisher said. "We’re trying to get some weight back on him. He’s worked hard the last couple of weeks." Fairley's role will be to rush the passer in sub-packages. He shouldn't be heavier than 290 or so.
Jun 12 - 6:10 PM

Rams signed third-round QB Sean Mannion to a four-year contract.

A four-year starter at Oregon State, Mannion regressed during his senior season, wrapping his career with an 83:54 TD/INT ratio. Mannion will spend 2015 learning the pro game behind Nick Foles.
Jun 12 - 5:48 PM

Rams signed No. 57 overall pick OT Rob Havenstein to a four-year contract.

The Rams are committed to Havenstein as their right tackle after moving on from Joe Barksdale. Havenstein is a limited athlete, but has plus length (33 3/4" arms) and impressive drive-blocking ability. The Rams also signed third-round RG Jamon Brown, who likewise projects to start as a rookie.
