The Rams have decided to close practice to the media for the first three weeks of the season. Mike Martz said it has nothing to do with any icy feelings towards the media, but wouldn’t elaborate on the decision. The closed practice policy begins on September 2nd and will last until after their Monday Night Football match up with the Buccaneers on September 23rd. With the move, the Rams join the Patriots, Raiders, Chargers, Buccaneers, and Redskins as the only teams with closed practices.
