  • Rams Announce Practice Squad

    One day after trimming their roster to 53 and trading a former first-round draft choice, the Rams began to fill out the roster for their other team, the practice squad.

    St. Louis added seven players to the practice squad Sunday. Every player on that roster spent the preseason with the Rams and was brought back.

    The following players were signed to the practice squad Sunday afternoon: Defensive tackle Jeremy Calahan, receivers Jeremy Carter and Dominique Thompson, center Toby Cecil, defensive end Clifford Dukes, tackle Matt Morgan and cornerback Duvol Thompson.

    Calahan, Carter, Thompson and Cecil all made it to the final round of cuts before being released yesterday. Morgan, Dukes and Thompson were let go in the first round of cuts last week.

    The practice squad maximum is eight players so the Rams could add one more in the coming days after getting a chance to scan the waiver wires.

    KATRINA RELIEF: The efforts of the players’ wives and the Quarterback Club helped raise over $70,000. The groups collected donations all day Friday to help with the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund.

    The final total will be announced later this week.

    Surprised to not see Turner on this list. Guess we'll be drafting for a C in a couple of years (if not next year).
    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

      Incognito is a center/guard.

        Toby Cecil is also a center and he is on the practice squad. I think i agree that the key to the future at that spot is the incognito one with sapaia and terrell at the guards, barron at right tackle and The Big Man at left tackle. Sounds like a great future for the line if they can stay healthy.

          Anyone know how Incognito is progressing health wise?

          I assume they are waiting for him to get healthy before signing him.

            Rams add wide receiver. . .to practice squad

            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 Rams’ 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.

            Practice Squad Announced!
            by chipperjones
            Former University of Illinois fullback Russ Weil has been signed to the Rams’ practice squad. Others re-signed are defensive end C.J. Ah You, running back Lance Ball, offensive lineman Dustin Fry, linebacker Marc Magro, wide receiver Derek Stanley and cornerback Darius Vinnett.

            The eighth spot will go to safety Eric Bassey once cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. signs his contract today.

            All the practice squad members were in training camp with the Rams.

            All for now . . . more following this afternoon’s practice.

            Post Dispatch

            I really like it. Bassey and Vinnett are good special teamers. Magro is a pretty good LB, Frye...well I havent lost hope on him, Ah You is a good practice squad guy, Im happy Weil is here, and the only people I would really be upset if they werent on here...Stanley and Ball, are!

            Rams announce practice squad

            The Rams added seven players to their practice squad Sunday night and Monday morning, including five players who have been in St. Louis and a couple of new additions from other teams.
            The practice squad in its current state includes: cornerback Marquis Johnson, linebacker Curtis Johnson, linebacker Mortty Ivy, center Drew Miller, tackle Ryan McKee, receiver Brandon McRae and receiver Danario Alexander.
            Marquis Johnson, Miller, McKee, McRae and Alexander spent all or part of training camp with the Rams.
            Ivy comes to St. Louis from Carolina, where he was on the Panthers practice squad last season after he came into the league as an undrafted rookie in 2009.
            Curtis Johnson played his college football at Clark University in Atlanta and signed with Indianapolis as an undrafted rookie in 2008. He played seven games for the Colts that year before moving on to Dallas last season.
            The Rams have room for one more player on their practice squad. That move will likely be made in the next day or two.
