The St. Louis Rams are one of the most interesting young teams in the NFL this season, with 2016 No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff at quarterback and last year’s rookie of the year, Todd Gurley, starring at running back.
However, the team is dealing with some issues in the offensive backfield after backup running back Tre Mason decided not to show up for camp.
But while the team could understandably be disappointed Mason did not show up for camp, head coach Jeff Fisher is more concerned than anything because Mason has not communicated with Fisher or his teammates since last season ended.
“I haven’t personally spoken with Tre since the season ended,” Fisher said, via FOX Sports. “I tried numerous times to reach him. Tre has made a decision not to communicate with us, not to talk. Not talking to his teammates. Right now we’re more concerned about Tre Mason’s well-being than we are his football career.”
And the Rams are not alone.
According to the report, Mason’s family is also concerned for his mental health and well-being after a bizarre string of behavior in recent months.
Let’s just hope Mason can turn everything around and get his life back on track before there is a devastating turn in his story.
