Now that they're in Los Angeles, the Rams no longer have to worry about the brutally hot, humid summer practices they endured in St. Louis.

Coach Jeff Fisher said in Missouri the team would have to schedule some of its practices in the evening to stay out of the heat. A few were still held in the midday just to stay prepared for early-season games in the South.

Now that the team hold its summer practices in Oxnard - where June temperatures often stay in the 60s - the players have things a little easier.

"When it's different humidity, you gotta be mentally prepared for it," said rookie wide receiver Duke Williams. "Because it could easily drain you. But that's part of the game - mental toughness."

The team moved to Los Angeles earlier this year and plays its first preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys on Aug. 14 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The regular season starts Sept. 12 against the 49ers in San Francisco.
