The Rams have issued a series of cuts to reach the mandated roster of limit of 53 for the regular season. Those on the offensive side of the ball are wide receivers Emory Blake, Austin Franklin and Justin Veltung, linemen Sean Hooey, Mitchell Van Dyk, Travis Bond and Brandon Washington, quarterback Garrett Gilbert and tight end Brad Smelley. Defenders now gone are linemen Kourtnei Brown, Matt Conrath and Deantre Harlan, defensive backs Christian Bryant, Darren Woodard, Avery Cunningham and Greg Reid and linebackers Aaron Hill, Etienne Sabino, Phillip Seward and Lawrence Wilson. The Rams also placed wideout Stedman Bailey on the reserved/suspended list.
The Rams re-signed three exclusive rights free agents: center Tim Barnes, quarterback Austin Davis and receiver Justin Veltung.
Rams receiver/returner Justin Veltung left the game at Seattle in the first half and was being evaluated for a head injury. He took a shot from Seattle's Ricardo Lockette on a punt return.
The Rams promoted wide receiver Justin Veltung from the practice squad Saturday, after waiving defensive lineman Gerald Rivers to make room. Veltung could be active for Week 15 against the Saints on special teams, with Tavon Austin dealing with an ankle injury.
The Rams signed eight players to their practice squad: wideouts Emory Blake and Justin Veltung, defensive end Mason Brodine, safety Cody Davis, offensive tackle Sean Hooey, fullback Eric Stevens, cornerback Darren Woodard and linebacker/defensive end Sammy Brown.
