St. Louis Rams Sign CB Chris Smith To The Practice Squad

The St. Louis Rams signed undrafted rookie cornerback Chris Smith to the practice squad, according to Tony Softli. Smith was in the building along with a handful of other players for a tryout on Tuesday. Smith replaces cornerback Nate Ness, who was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster yesterday as a replacement for Al Harris.

Injuries decimated the Rams' supply of cornerbacks, taking the top three from the depth chart this season. Adding another corner to the practice squad was a must given the team's luck with injuries at that position this year. Josh Gordy and Justin King assume duties as the Rams' starting corners this week. 

Smith was with the Rams in training camp, through their August 7 scrimmage at Lindenwood University. He was released following an injury suffered in that game. Smith is 5' 9" 186 lbs. He ran a 4.67 forty at the NIU pro day this spring.
