EARTH CITY, Mo. -- We are finally about 24 hours away from the start of the St. Louis Rams' 2014 training camp. The first full-squad practice is scheduled for Friday at 4:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. CT.
In total, the Rams will have 13 practices open to the public in this year's camp, including a scrimmage at the Edward Jones Dome for the team's annual FanFest.
What you will find here is the complete schedule of open practices along with the days in which the different position groups are scheduled to sign autographs. Like always, these are tentative times subject to change and I'll do my best to keep you updated on any changes on Twitter @nwagoner.
To start, here's the schedule of practices open to fans (note that one open practice has already been altered). All times are Central and all practices take place at Rams Park unless otherwise noted. Also, the designated player autograph tent is available only to kids 14 and under but other players do sign autographs near the fencing after practices at their discretion.
A few other notes as camp prepares to open:
For the first time, the Rams will sell beer among the concession items available at training camp.
The Rams will get the home portion of their preseason schedule out of the way in the first two weeks. They host New Orleans on Aug. 8 and follow with Green Bay on Aug. 16.
The Rams have a training camp hotline for fans to call for any changes to the practice schedule. That number is 314-516-8852.
The Rams' website also has additional information available on training camp, including the answers to frequently asked questions.
