THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — The Los Angeles Rams get positioned punters Johnny Hekker and Corey Bojorquez on the reserve/COVID-19 checklist, the group launched Saturday.

That leaves the Rams with out a punter listed on the roster for a Week 2 preseason game in opposition to the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday night at SoFi Stadium.

The Rams did no longer straight snarl who might perhaps well motivate as a reserve punter.

For a fourth consecutive twelve months, Rams coach Sean McVay has opted no longer to play starters in preseason action, and this twelve months he has taken it a step additional, resting several key reserves as nicely.

Quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and backup John Wolford will no longer play in opposition to Las Vegas.

It is that which you might perhaps well imagine that McVay might perhaps well test the fourth-down capabilities of backup quarterbacks Bryce Perkins and Devlin Hodges with out a punter.

A fourth-twelve months pro signed over the offseason, Bojorquez has been worrying the four-time All-Reputable Hekker for the say.

Both punted twice in a 13-6 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1. Hekker averaged 45.5 yards per punt, and Bojorquez averaged 43.
