The St. Louis Rams got into the swing of things with player-run practices on Monday.

About 30 players showed up at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo., for a practice that quarterback Sam Bradford took control of, according to Bill Coats of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Bradford not only ran the scene on the field, he’s helping off the field too as he’s housing some of the rookie draft picks who don’t have a place to stay. That includes tight end Lance Kendricks, a second-round pick from Wisconsin, and wide receiver Greg Salas, a fourth-round pick from Hawaii.

I rolled in at 4:30 (a.m.), got a couple of hours of sleep and got out here,” said Salas, who crashed at Bradford’s place.

Bradford has been regularly communicating with the rookies and they’re trying to do what they can without having too much knowledge of Josh McDaniels’ new playbook.

"We've gone over some things," Bradford said. "I've tried to explain to them in as much detail as possible the formations, routes, alignments, things like that.
 

"It definitely wasn't their first time to hear it when we got here.”
