The St. Louis Rams made an official announcement of their 10-man practice squad on Monday afternoon.

Players released ahead of Saturday's deadline first had to clear waivers, giving the league's other teams a chance to sign them. Those players officially cleared waivers on Sunday at Noon ET. And that's when all 32 front offices started scrambling.

The official 10-man practice squad:

LB Denicos Allen, WR Emory Blake, S Christian Bryant, DT Matt Conrath, S Matt Daniels, QB Garrett Gilbert, T Sean Hooey, LB Kevin Reddick, WR Justin Veltung and G Brandon Washington

Fisher talked about the considerations the Rams make when signing practice squad players at Saturday's press conference.

"The practice squad is heavily dependent on what you do in other positions," Fisher said. "We've got, for example, it's well noted that Trumaine's going to be down for a few weeks, Barrett is going to be down for a few weeks. We may have to go heavy in the other positions. If your familiar with our roster right now, we've got five linebackers, for example, we need linebackers on the practice squad."

Practice squad eligibility rules:

-- A player is eligible if he does not have an accrued season of NFL experience. Players gain an accrued season by being on the active roster for at least six games.
-- If a player has one accrued season, they can still be practice squad eligible if they were on the 45-man active gameday roster for less than nine regular season games.
-- A player is deemed to have served a season on the practice squad if he remains on the practice squad for at least three weeks. Players are eligible to be on the practice squad for two seasons.
-- Players can be eligible for a third practice squad season if their team maintains no less than 53 players on the active/inactive list at all times.
