Hatfield signed a reserve/future contract with the Rams on Monday.
Hatfield spent the first 13 weeks of the season on the Rams' 53-man roster, but was waived in early December as he dealt with a hip injury. The 23-year-old was mostly relegated to special teams in 2017, and would need to make significant strides this offseason if he is to increase his defensive role next season.

Hatfield had been listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles, but will now hope to latch onto another team or its practice squad, hip injury permitting. The Rams added linebacker Cameron Lynch with Alec Ogletree (elbow) and Connor Barwin (forearm) both questionable for Sunday's game.

Hatfield was a new addition to the injury report Thursday and did not practice Friday, and the severity of the injury remains unclear. Nickell Robey-Coleman would slot in at the Rams' primary nickel cornerback with Hatfield unlikely to play.
Hatfield exited Sunday's game against the Colts briefly to undergo the NFL's concussion protocol, but he passed and eventually returned to the action. Despite returning to the game Sunday, it's nonetheless good to see the 22-year-old doesn't appear to be suffering any ill effects from the potential injury at this point.
