Rams coach Sean McVay missed Wednesday's practice with a non-COVID-19 illness. He experienced a stomach bug and wanted to play things on the safe side, resulting in him to miss a day so nobody else would catch it.
Therefore, Wednesday's practice was handled by offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell and defensive coordinator Raheem Morris.
O'Connell said in wake of McVay's mid-week absence that he had been able to do the game-planning despite feeling under the weather.
And on Thursday, McVay returned to the practice field in preparation for the Rams' Week 3 contest against the Buccaneers.
