    Rams CB Derion Kendrick returns to team facility for first time after arrest
    • October 19, 2023

    THOUSAND OAKS — Rams cornerback Derion Kendrick returned to the team facility and participated in a walk through Thursday, defensive coordinator Raheem Morris said. It marked the first team activity Kendrick has participated in since his arrest early Monday morning on a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon.

    Kendrick spoke with Morris on Wednesday night and had a meeting with head coach Sean McVay on Thursday morning upon his return to the Rams’ team facility. After that, he attended team meetings, Morris said.

    The original plan was for Kendrick to participate in practice Thursday, but he left the team facility before it began, according to a team spokesperson.

    Kendrick’s status for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers remains to be determined, with McVay making the final call. But Morris said he is preparing for all possibilities.

    Morris said the entire situation has been a lot for Kendrick to deal with this week and something he tried to address with teammates after his return Thursday.

    “It’s really more about him being apologetic for causing any form of distraction. He doesn’t want me up here answering questions about DK Kendrick in a week we’re playing the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Morris said. “So you feel really bad about those things. No matter what the situation is, those are the things that affect these guys the most. Just getting away from our due process and the process that we want to go about for winning football games. Because that’s what we’re all here for.”
