Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

Rams coach Sean Mcvay won­dered aloud how foot­ball and so­cial dis­tanc­ing con­cepts can pos­si­bly co-ex­ist in 2020.

Speak­ing on a joint con­fer­ence call with Charg­ers coach and Los An­ge­les NFL co-tenant An­thony Lynn to pre­view their Hard Knocks sea­son ahead, Mcvay opened up about doubts foot­ball can be played dur­ing the pan­demic.

“Is this crazy coach Lynn? We’re talk­ing about some of this stuff and we’re play­ing foot­ball,” Mcvay said. “I mean we’re go­ing to so­cial dis­tance but we play foot­ball? Hey, this is re­ally hard for me to un­der­stand all this. I don’t want to be ... I don’t get it. I re­ally don’t.”

On the same day Cal­i­for­nia Gov. Gavin New­som made pro­tec­tive masks manda­tory in pub­lic, HBO an­nounced the Charg­ers and Rams will be fea­tured in the five-part do­cuseries Hard Knocks de­but­ing Aug. 11.

Mcvay was back in the of­fice for the first time Thurs­day wear­ing the Rams’ new logo on his pro­tec­tive face mask.

If foot­ball train­ing camp hap­pens this sum­mer, Mcvay and gen­eral man­ager Les Snead said the Rams are ex­cited about be­ing a fea­tured at­trac­tion on HBO. “We’re re­ally ex­cited about it,” Mcvay said.
