Rams Training Camp 2012: Rokevious Watkins Back In Playing Shape

Offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins reported to Rams rookie camp out of shape, and the organization held him out of drills while he worked on the issue. Now that he's gotten himself into better shape, the South Carolina product is finally able to participate fully in practice.

A week after reporting, as the Rams spent their second day in full pads Friday, the 6-3, 341-pound Watkins was on the field, at a better weight and seeing significant time with the second and third teams.

"I'm just glad to be back out on the field," he said. "I thank the trainers for doing it the right way and getting me back out there safely. Now that I'm back out there, I'm just basically trying to get the mental part of it down."
