LOS ANGELES (AP) — after a wildfire forced about 20 players and coaches to evacuate their homes.The Rams (8-1) will cram their normal Friday preparations into a workout at the University of Southern California on Saturday before they face the Seattle Seahawks at the Coliseum on Sunday.Just one day after the Rams were stunned by a mass shooting less than five miles from their training complex in Thousand Oaks Michael Brockers Jersey , they were forced to make big changes in their normal game-week routine by two wildfires burning in Ventura and Los Angeles counties.“I don’t think anybody’s house has been specifically affected, but they did have to leave the areas,” coach Sean McVay said. “It’s still a scary thing Ethan Westbrooks Jersey , and extremely unfortunate that they had to go through this. … We just felt like the most important thing was for people to be with their families.”About 45 Rams employees were evacuated from neighborhoods south of the Rams’ training complex, although McVay doesn’t believe any homes have been lost. Those forced to leave their homes Friday included defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and defensive line coach Bill Johnson.Some of the evacuees moved early into the downtown hotel used by the Rams on the night before games. McVay will hold morning meetings at the hotel Saturday, followed by a practice at USC.The Rams already installed most of their game plan for the Seahawks John Sullivan Jersey , McVay said. On Saturday, his team will follow a plan that they used in September during their short week of preparation for a Thursday night game against Minnesota.“Hopefully things will get under control in the next day, and then we’ll get our work done (Saturday) in a little bit of a condensed fashion Cory Littleton Jersey ,” McVay said. “But our guys have always been able to adjust and adapt in a good way.”The Rams will hold a moment of silence before Sunday’s game in honor of the 12 victims of the massacre at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday night.“If anything, the last couple of days give you that perspective that we talked about (Thursday),” McVay said. “Most importantly is having our players and our organizational people be able to be the leaders of their family as they go through a little bit of adversity. … I’m fortunate where I didn’t have to leave my house Nickell Robey-Coleman Jersey , but a lot of guys did.” Left tackle Andrew Whitworth is coming back for another year with the Rams, but another member of their offensive line may be moving on.The Rams had to pick up their option on Sullivan’s contract by Monday and Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the team opted not to do so. Sullivan could reach agreement with the Rams on a different deal, but is in line to become an unrestricted free agent on March 13 if that doesn’t happen.Sullivan was set to have a $6.25 million cap number in 2019. The Rams will be left with $1 million of that charge on their cap.Sullivan started every meaningful game for the Rams over the last two seasons. At 33 Andrew Whitworth Jersey , he’s getting close to the end of his career but he remained a capable player in Los Angeles and will likely see a fair amount of interest in his services on the open market.The Rams could also wind up moving forward without guard Rodger Saffold, who is set for unrestricted free agency next month.
