In this powerful scene, Artis Twyman – Rams director of communications – brings the video to McVay because he thinks it’s important for the head coach to see it. “His kids are in the back,” Twyman explains, showing McVay the August 23 incident which took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

McVay, astonished, told Twyman – “This is horrible. It makes me sick. “ McVay discussed the possibility of canceling practice the next day following the shoot… but ultimately held on to normal practice. The team held a team meeting to discuss the shoot. Of course, many NFL teams has canceled their workouts scheduled so players can jump into action after filming … including the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers and more. LA Chargers – also featured on “Hard Knocks” – called up scrimmage after the shot and head coach announcement Anthony Lynn was also featured on the show. “We’re not going to interfere today,” Lynn said. “This football team is committed to fighting for a championship and social justice. “
