Rams' Quinn heads to Rio watch sister in 100-meter hurdles
IRVINE, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Rams defensive end Robert Quinn missed practice Tuesday to watch his sister Jasmine Camacho-Quinn compete in the 100-meter hurdles at the Rio Olympics.
Coach Jeff Fisher said Quinn approached him earlier this summer when Camacho-Quinn was selected to the Puerto Rico national team, and the Rams allowed him to travel to Rio de Janeiro.
''We've been talking on and off for the last couple weeks, so I gave him permission a number of weeks ago and he finally made the arrangements,'' Fisher said. ''It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It's really a neat thing for Rob and his family. It's the right thing to do, to let him go down.''
