From Pro Football Zone:

St. Louis Rams rookie cornerback Trumaine Johnson missed his first training camp practice after missing his flight on Wednesday because he overslept. 

“I set my alarm clock,” Johnson said after his day of practice on Thursday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “I didn’t hear it. I missed my flight. I messed up.”

Oversleeping and missing practice isn’t unheard of when it comes to NFL rookies.  I’m sure Johnson will do what he can to ensure he never misses another practice.

Rams rookie Trumaine Johnson misses first practice after oversleeping

There are good ways to start your NFL career, and there are bad ways. Rams rookie cornerback Trumaine Johnson knows about the bad ways.

Rams, Steven Jackson working on an extension

Steven Jackson is now 29 years old and has 2138 career carries. The average member of the top-25 all-time leaders in rushing yards has his last 1000 yard season at age 30 and 2602 career carries (Jackson currently sits at 32nd all-time and will likely finish his career in the top-25). After that players have a big drop off and they average just 169 carries per season at 3.5 yards...

Steven Jackson or Trent Richardson

We all know what S Jack can bring to the table. Seven years with at least a 1,000 yards and 5 touchdowns. Not to mention his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. How long can this production last? His bruiser mentality makes him questionable weekly leaving owners perplexed in regards to touches and playtime. Trent Richardson is the future. I haven’t watched highlights...
