    Rams Place Kevin Peterson on IR, Sign DT Lord Hyeamang

    The Rams have placed cornerback Kevin Peterson on injured reserve after he suffered a season-ending knee injury during Thursday’s game with the Ravens.

    Going into his third season as a pro, Peterson was having a solid camp at UC Irvine — consistently getting his hands on the ball by either breaking up passes or recording interceptions.

    Peterson originally signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State in 2016. Los Angeles signed him to its practice squad late in the 2016 season, and he stuck with the club on a futures contract. Peterson played in six games in 2017, starting the Week 17 contest against the *****. During that game, Peterson recorded a pair of interceptions off of San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

    As a corresponding roster move, Los Angeles has signed defensive tackle Lord Hyeamang. An undrafted free agent out of Columbia, Hyeamang signed with the Seahawks earlier this month but was waived shortly after. Hyeamang was a second-team All-Ivy selection in 2016 and a first-team All-Ivy selection in 2017.

    Not gonna eyes first saw "Rams place CB Peters on IR". I peed a little.

    signed defensive tackle Lord Hyeamang
    This is a huge signing. I watched him take out a dozen orcs while helping Frodo across Mordor.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

        Rams sign CB Rod Hood

        CB Rod Hood agrees to terms

        Veteran help is on the way for the Rams at cornerback. Rod Hood, whose NFL career has spanned eight seasons and includes 47 regular-season starts, has agreed to terms.

        He's expected to be on the field for practice Wednesday at Rams Park. Hood, 29, has the kind of size that coach Steve Spagnuolo likes at 5-11, 201. Most recently with Tennessee, Hood missed the entire 2010 season after suffering a knee injury (torn ACL) during OTAs that June.
        The Rams have looked at him twice _ he visited Rams Park on Aug. 11 and Sept. 13. The native of Columbus, Ga., played his college ball at Auburn, arriving there as a walk-on wide receiver before being switched to defense.
        There is a Spagnuolo connection here because Hood began his NFL career as an undrafted rookie with Philadelphia in 2003. He spent his first four seasons with the Eagles, with Spagnuolo his secondary coach in '03.
        Hood had his greatest success with the Arizona Cardinals, starting 30 games over two seasons (2007 and '08). He had five interceptions and 21 pass breakups during the '07 season, earning NFC defensive player of the week honors after a two-interception day in Week 5 against the Rams. Hood returned one of those Gus Frerotte INTs 68 yards for a touchdown in a 34-31 Arizona victory at the Edward Jones Dome.
        Hood also had an interception against the Rams in 2008, in a game also played in St. Louis. Overall, Hood has 14 career INTs in 93 regular-season games, three of which he returned for scores.
        Hood played for Super Bowl runners-up with Philadelphia (2004 season) and Arizona (2008 season). The Rams have worked out more than a half-dozen cornerbacks over the past three Tuesdays following Ron Bartell's season-ending neck injury in Week 1 against Philadelphia.
        They had three corners in for workouts Tuesday: Byran McCann (most recently with Dallas), Jeremy Ware (most recently with Oakland), and Michael Holmes (Chicago). In addition, two wide receivers worked out Tuesday: Chris Brooks (Indianapolis) and Adam Mims (Pittsburgh). None of those players was signed.
        To free up a roster spot for Hood, the Rams waived safety Jermale Hines, a fifth-round draft pick in April who had been inactive for each of the Rams' three games. The Rams also waived tight end/fullback Ben Guidugli from the practice squad. So it's possible Hines will be signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers Wednesday.
        The team also waived rookie corner Dionte Dinkins from their injured reserve list. Dinkins had suffered a high ankle sprain in the Rams' third preseason game, Aug. 26 against Kansas City. Because he was designated as having a "minor injury" when placed on IR Aug. 30, the Rams were required to release him once he was healthy. The Rams cannot re-sign Dinkins until after the 2011 season.

        Rams Activate Okoronkwo to Active Roster

        Los Angeles has activated rookie outside linebacker Ogbonnia Okoronkwo from the physically unable to perform list to the active 53-man roster.

        Okoronkwo suffered a foot injury that required surgery during Phase II of the Rams’ offseason program back in May. He was sidelined by the injury for the rest of the offseason program and all through training camp, beginning the regular season on the PUP list.

        Because he was on PUP for Week 1, by rule Okoronkwo had to miss the first six weeks of the year. He was able to practice with a 21-day window that began a couple weeks ago, and has apparently done enough to earn his way onto the active roster.

        A fifth-round pick out of Oklahoma, Okoronkwo recorded 20.0 sacks and 33.0 tackles for loss in four seasons with the Sooners. In his senior year alone, Okoronkwo had 17.0 tackles for loss and 8.0 sacks.

        Should he be on the 46-man gameday roster, Okoronkwo could provide some help as an edge rusher. Los Angeles also acquired outside linebacker Dante Fowler from Jacksonville last week to rush off the edge.

        As a corresponding roster move, L.A. has waived rookie outside linebacker Trevon Young.

        Head coach Sean McVay is scheduled to meet with the media at 5 p.m. on Monday, and is likely to address the roster move then.

        Rams sign safety Knight Sports

        MACOMB, Ill. -- Safety Tom Knight, a six-year veteran who played last season with the Baltimore Ravens, signed a one-year contract with the Rams today.

        Knight, 5-foot-11 and 196 pounds, was a first-round draft pick (ninth overall) out of Iowa by the Arizona Cardinals in 1997. He played five seasons for the Cardinals.

        Knight spent the final three weeks of the 2002 season on the Ravens' roster, then played 10 games last season for Baltimore, starting one.

        For his NFL career, Knight has played in 73 games and started 54. He also has appeared in three postseason games.

        The Rams released running back Adam Matthews, a rookie out of Northern Colorado who signed with the team April 30.

        No Rams-Patriots Deal On Running Back
        by r8rh8rmike
        No Rams-Patriots deal on running back

        Wednesday, September 15, 2010

        On a day Laurence Maroney was shipped to Denver, league sources told the Post-Dispatch that the Rams had been talking to New England about trading for one of its running backs.

        But the sources said the Rams were more interested in other running backs on New England's roster, not so much Maroney, the St. Louis native who has been slowed by injuries for much of his four seasons with the Patriots.

        Maroney, who attended Normandy High and the University of Minnesota, was traded along with a New England sixth-round draft pick to Denver for a Broncos fourth-round pick. Maroney did not play in New England's season opener because of a thigh injury.

        The Patriots currently have four running backs on their roster, including veterans Kevin Faulk, 34, Fred Taylor, 34, and Sammy Morris, 33, plus youngster BenJarvus Green-Ellis, 25.

        The Rams' conversations with the Patriots date back at least to late August, when the teams met in Foxborough for the third game of the preseason. But for now, the Rams' search for backfield help behind Steven Jackson remains just that — a search.

        Otherwise Tuesday was a busy day at Rams Park, although minus any earth-shattering moves. The Rams signed former New York Giants tight end Darcy Johnson to the active roster, releasing defensive tackle Jermelle Cudjo to free up a roster spot.

        The Rams also did some work on their practice squad. Fullback Brit Miller and fullback-tight end Jamie McCoy were added, with wide receiver Brandon McRae and running back Allen Patrick released from the squad to make room.

        The Rams also worked out three street free agents Tuesday: offensive tackle Kirk Chambers, safety Macho Harris and linebacker Kevin Malast. But none of the three was signed.

        Johnson, the tight end, was with the Rams during training camp but didn't survive the cut to 53 players. He's a solid blocker with limited receiving skills. The Rams now have five tight ends on their active roster, but one of them — rookie Michael Hoomanawanui — is expected to miss at least a month with a sprained ankle suffered in the first quarter Sunday against Arizona.

        Hoomanawanui also played fullback, and with him unavailable for several weeks, Mike Karney is the only fullback on the roster. Which probably explains the signings of McCoy and Miller to the practice squad as insurance. McCoy was in training camp with the Rams as an undrafted rookie.

        Miller appeared in five games last season with San Francisco as an undrafted rookie. Miller, who is from Decatur, Ill., was converted to fullback after playing linebacker at the University of Illinois. He had six special teams tackles and was credited with 17 special teams blocks in those five games for the *****.
