Whether it's preparing for preseason games and trying to survive looming cut down days or gearing up for the post season chase, the Rams and Cardinals can't help following the day to day events. The Rams earlier this week invited football teams from disrupted high schools to practice at their indoor facility. They also provided 75 complimentary tickets to the schools.
The bottom line: "It's sad to see the same thing is happening over and over."
Offensive tackle Joe Barksdale, who grew up in Detroit, wondered about the rationale for looting: "What's even more messed up is people destroying their own communities."
"I don't know if the cops were overly aggressive, or what happened with the protesters," Britt said. "It's kind of hard when people with a voice (are) not saying anything."
Britt has had numerous brushes with the law, making the news for the wrong reasons three straight years earlier in his career when he was with the Titans. In 2013, he was questioned by police when a close friend was involved in a stabbing, a year after being cited for resisting arrest and then suspended for the opener after a DUI arrest. In 2011, he was arrested in New Jersey following a car chase with police

After a recent 6 1 home stand, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said he hoped his team's surge during the dog days of August would provide a welcome diversion. Maybe common ground, too.
Coach Jeff Fisher said the team had been "brainstorming" how to get involved and thought of kids who are being deprived.
"I think a lot of us are aware of what's going on with that," Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said after Green Bay's preseason victory over the Rams in St. Louis. "Sports, at times, have been able to heal a country in terms of bringing people back together.".
The Rams have drawn headlines this year for becoming the first NFL team to draft an openly gay player in Michael Sam. That was 77 years after the franchise, then in Los Angeles, was the first to sign a black player in the post World War II era Nike Basketball Shoes 2017 Women's
At the least, the players hoped the games and training camp tidbits provide a welcome diversion in St. Louis.
The case hit close to home for Padres reliever Blaine Boyer, who played for the Cardinals in 2009.
"It's just very, very sad and we hope that things get worked out as soon as they possibly can, but this is different," Fisher said. "This is football players. This will be something that I hope they'll always remember."

"I can identify 100 per cent with what they're going through," Britt said of Ferguson residents. "Especially as a young kid growing up, I've seen it. When people have power they tend to use it.
