With long days of meetings, practice and treatment for aches and injuries — not to mention travel and the games themselves — football is all-consuming for Rams players this time of year.

For the second year in a row, Justice Cunningham will enjoy Thanksgiving just a little bit more.

Among those sitting out Wednesday’s practice were defensive end Robert Quinn, center Scott Wells and end Eugene Sims. All three absences were not injury-related. Quinn and Wells watched the workout in what amounts to a veteran’s day off.

Linebacker James Laurinaitis (foot) also did not practice Wednesday in what has become something of a Wednesday tradition for him.
