Natson (hand) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.
Natson looks on track to play Sunday against the Seahawks, barring a setback. The speedster should reclaim his role as the Rams primary kick and punt returner, with Cooper Kupp relinquishing those duties.
Natson spent his rookie season with the Jets and played in seven games, making little impact with only two receptions for 18 yards. Instead, the 24-year-old was used 32 times as a return man. Natson will have an uphill battle to make the Rams' 53-man roster out of camp, especially since they already have Pharoh Cooper to field kicks and punts.
Natson was waived by the Jets on Friday.
Natson was the No. 2 option for punt and kick returns in 2017, and he hauled in just two passes on five targets for 18 yards. The Jets signed a skilled return man, Andre Roberts, in March, so Natson's services were no longer needed.
Natson caught one of two targets for 19 yards and rushed once for 15 yards during Sunday's loss to the Saints.
Natson registered positive yards for the first time this season, but with the Jets eliminated from playoff contention, he may see an increase in snaps in the final two weeks. That being said, with Bryce Petty under center it's tough to see a fantasy breakout coming.
Natson has been on the team's practice squad after making an impression in the preseason, and finally earned a roster spot. The 23-year-old will likely contribute on special teams, but with ArDarius Stewart (groin) not certain to play against the Buccaneers on Sunday, he could see some opportunities as fourth wide receiver if Stewart cannot play.
