    Right side of Rams’ offensive line under a microscope against Raiders

    OAKLAND >> The Rams will push their starters into the second quarter Saturday against the Oakland Raiders.

The former second-round pick looked healthy in his return to Southern California, flying around the field during joint practices between his former team (Chargers) and his current one (Saints).
