2015 St. Louis Rams Roster: RB Terrence Franks Released, DT Marcus Forston Signed

The Rams have shored up their defensive tackle depth with Doug Worthington currently injured.

Not earth-shattering considering the stable at running back, but it does suggest the Rams are concerned about Doug Worthington's status throughout camp and the preseason.

Bear in mind earlier this week with the E.J. Gaines injury, the Rams released WR Devon Wylie and signed CB Trovon Reed.

Terrence Franks hadn't done much in camp, though it's not as if he's had a ton of opportunity either. The Rams aren't as reliant on their UDFA class as they have been in years past now with four years of Snisher drafts propping up the roster. I loved Franks' personal story getting to this point, but I couldn't give him more than a two out of 10 in his roster preview piece.

Marcus Forston, for his part, spent two and a piece of a third seasons with the New England Patriots after going undrafted himself following the 2012 NFL Draft. He'll occupy the veteran spot Worthington's injury has opened.
