ST. LOUIS (AP) - Moving practice indoors along with a fan festival gave the St. Louis Rams a chance to build some enthusiasm. Give the rookies a feel for the stadium, too.

Safety T.J. McDonald was a bit overwhelmed at first walking into the Edward Jones Dome in front of a crowd estimated at 15,000 before settling down to business Saturday for what essentially was another full-pad practice with little tackling.

McDonald never played indoors at USC, and wide receivers Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey had just one dome experience at Syracuse.

Quarterback Sam Bradford thought the kids handled the newness pretty well and came away believing the offense was even faster on the artificial surface.

Players have a day off Sunday before starting preparations for the preseason opener Thursday night at Cleveland.
