    Rams Add Wide Receiver.....To Practice Squad

    Rams add wide receiver. . .to practice squad
    By Jim Thomas
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    All signs point to the St. Louis Rams holding firm at just four wide receivers on the active roster for Week 1 of the regular season. The team signed wide receiver Nate Jones to their practice squad Tuesday, but made no additions to the active roster.

    The first-year player from Texas was on the Ramsí 53-man roster for one day over the weekend, until he and linebacker Quinton Culberson were released to make room for the waiver-wire additions of safety Anthony Smith and defensive tackle LaJuan Ramsey.

    Defensive end Ian Campbell was dropped from the practice squad to make room for Jones.

    Heck, they've brought in so many recently, I'm due at Rams Park next week. I got hands but you could clock my 40 with a sun dial.

    I will peg you as the backup long snapper. Considering they are brave enough to go with only 4 wr's, why not twist it up a little?

    Might even get a carry or two if Massey goes down, since we only have 4 RB's on the roster!

    This is weird...I think we should worry about injuries seeming how both Avery and Burton have been injured before....but I trust the team.

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    Soooooooo what happens if a WR gets injured? This doesn't make any sense...

    Re: Rams Add Wide Receiver.....To Practice Squad

    scott..you mean during the Seattle game im guessing..

    if one of our 4 goes down during the game..my guess is they will switch Fells over to WR, for when they want to play 4 WR sets that is..
    i think we will be fine with 4 for the 1st week..for the season i think we need and will get that 5th WR from somewhere..but it will have to be someone who is an upgrade over Nate Jones or they will just promote him from the PS.

    although our 4 WR`s are all young and have only played in the NFL for a relatively short period of time...every one of them has missed some games through injury..so it is a concern..but i have faith in Billy D and Spags..im sure they have a plan they are currently working on to address the need.
    they just not doing it this week due to the fact that theyd have to invest a years salary in that player,regardless of if he performs well enough to keep his roster spot or not..where as if they pick up someone in week 2 they dont.

    I have faith in them as well, it just seems odd to me that they would enter the season with only 4 WR

    If we plan on splitting out 5 wide, I can assure you that Jax will be one of them, so in all, you only really need 4 guys, but that's still a worry in case of injury. I would imagine that we'll be looking at picking up someone that's dropped from Philly or Arizona(both holding onto seven WR's at the moment) either right after they're dropped, or more likely, have them in for a test on Tuesday and signed after that.
