Who will make it to LA’s practice squad?
As of this writing, we do not yet know who will be on the practice squad, but updates will go here soon.
These are the players who were released by the Los Angeles Rams this week, some of whom will end up on the 17-player practice squad. They will definitely retain offensive tackle Max Pircher, a part of the International Pathway Program, which means that he will not count against the 16-player limit that teams have for their practice squad.
Size of each team’s practice squad: 16
The Rams will be able to carry Pircher in addition to this number.
Eligibility: Up to six players with more than two accrued seasons, up to four with no more than two seasons, and the rest to players who have no accrued seasons (on an active roster for more than nine games).
Gameday: The Rams can promote up to two players per week from practice squad to active roster. Each week, they can also protect four players from being claimed off of their practice squad from other teams.
Los Angeles Rams are signing former Texans running back Buddy Howell to the practice squad, according to a league source @SportsTalk790 Howell (6-foot-1, 218 ) is a special-teams standout from Florida Atlantic who had a career-high 64 rushing yards last year and 16 career tackles
^won’t count against 16-player limit for practice squad
Banks was the only Rams player claimed on Wednesday, so they are now free to bring back any of the rest of their cuts from Tuesday. Banks is now reunited with Brandon Staley.
Rams lose another player who was released yesterday; Rozeboom to the KC Chiefs practice squad.https://t.co/9fkYS0GLXo
