Jared Goff raved about the first-team offensive line, said it "no doubt" felt different: "They've done a great job, just as a whole. They've really worked together; they're starting to jell. I think you saw that last Saturday. The Oakland defensive line is no slouch. They have some dudes over there. They did a great job keeping them away and giving me a good pocket. It wasn't just throw it and get hit. It was clean, the whole time."

Rams QB Jared Goff, when asked if Saturday's performance gives him confidence: "I think it does that for the whole team, just seeing it come to fruition. ... But it wasn't like it was shocking."

No surprise, but RB Lance Dunbar, who has spent all year recovering from an old knee injury, will begin the season on PUP. Behind Todd Gurley, it's Malcolm Brown, Justin Davis and Aaron Green, perhaps in that order.

Sean McVay, on Rams-Chargers, the "Fight For LA" and Saturday's game: "It offers a great opportunity for two teams, in a great market, to try to put a sound product out there. I think it'd be a little different if we were both in the NFC."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Sean McVay, on the Rams' offense: "We know that we have a long ways to go. Certainly last week was positive, but by no means does that mean that we've arrived."

Change of plans with Rams starters for the third preseason game. They'll have a similar workload to this past Saturday, playing through the first quarter and potentially into the second, rather than an entire half. Todd Gurley got eight carries against the Raiders and may get even get less against the Chargers. Offensive linemen Andrew Whitworth, Rodger Saffold and John Sullivan will probably exit before Goff, too. Starters obviously won't play in the fourth preseason game in Green Bay.

Rams re-sign veteran Walker for defensive line

Tyrunn Walker, who was released by the Rams in June amid sexual assault accusations, has re-signed with the team. Charges were not brought against Walker.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Rams announced that they have brought back veteran DT Tyrunn Walker, who was signed and waived over the offseason. Walker was recently cleared of sexual assault charges that stemmed from a February incident in Louisiana. Rams obviously have a need here, with Aaron Donald still holding out and Dominique Easley out for the year.

Watkins says he had jitters in Rams debut (0:41)

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Sammy Watkins is wearing No. 2, his number from Clemson, but will have to change it for the regular season. Receivers can only wear 80-89 or 10-19. Watkins wants to keep it in the teens. He wore 14 in Buffalo, which now belongs to backup QB Sean Mannion. Watkins hasn't approached Mannion about 14 yet.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

New Rams WR Sammy Watkins liked the way the offense flowed Saturday, but still can't play as fast as he would like.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson, on Aaron Donald still holding out: "We'd love to have him here, but at the same time, I know what he's going through. I've been through it. It's a business at the end of the day. He's a very valuable player. Hopefully he gets what he's asking for."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

OLB Robert Quinn and CB Kayvon Webster still have a chance of playing in Saturday's preseason game, but ILB Mark Barron will not and will thus begin the season without playing in a game. Webster's ankle was bothering him, so he didn't practice. Quinn was going to practice, but got a charley horse from Michael Brockers during a walk-through and stayed away. Tavon Austin (hamstring) did some agility drills on his own.

Rams coach Sean McVay says he has "a lot of respect" for Mike Martz. "You look at the production of offenses that he's been a part of. ... I don't know Coach Martz; I met him real quick at the combine a handful of years ago. But I have a lot of respect for what he's accomplished and can't say anything but good things about what he's done and what kind of coach he is."
