Decisions are getting tougher for teams as the clock counts down toward 8 p.m. CT. The St. Louis Rams have released a handful of players on their way from 75 to 53. The latest player to be released is former Pro Bowl fullback Ovie Mughelli.

Mughelli shared the news on Twitter, taking it all in stride on Friday afternoon.

The Rams gave him some playing time with the first team in Thursday night's game, and he made a nice catch and run in the first quarter on one of the Rams' three scoring drives.

Mughelli missed most of last season with the Falcons because of a torn MCL. He looked healthy enough to contribute in camp and the preseason, and he should find a new home relatively soon, though the market for fullbacks isn't what it used to be.

The move means Brit Miller hangs onto his spot as the team's top fullback. Miller also plays special teams, which Mughelli does not.

Also released were: WR Nick Johnson, LB Sammy Brown and QB Tom Brandstater.
