Defensive end Robert Quinn, the St. Louis Rams' first-round draft pick, was on the practice field today. But his work was limited to conditioning drills with head trainer Reggie Scott.
Quinn showed up Saturday at Rams Park with an injury to his right knee. He did it a couple of months ago while working out.
So, Quinn starts his first NFL training camp on the non-football injury (NFI) list.
"The knee is fine," Quinn said. "Just a little tweak."
Coach Steve Spagnuolo referred to it as a sprain and said Quinn could be full-go soon. "We could do it in a day, two days, three days," Spagnuolo said. "Reggie's going to take it day by day and assess it."
In other injury news, fullback Brit Miller and Marquis Johnson have been placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Both are recovering from knee injuries suffered last season.
