The Los Angeles Rams have named seven players to their practice squad today:
OT Isaiah Battle
LB Brandon Chubb
DL Morgan Fox
RB Aaron Green
DB Michael Jordan
RB Terrence Magee
WR Paul McRoberts
All seven were part of the identified cuts from yesterday’s 53-man roster deadline.
Additionally, reports suggested CB Blake Countess and TE Bryce Williams would join the PS:

Looks like tight end Bryce Williams to the Rams practice squad https://t.co/yqO5jM2wuP— Joe Curley (@vcsjoecurley) September 4, 2016
Countess was a sixth-round pick out of Auburn for the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2016 NFL Draft who was released in their jump from 75 to 53 yesterday.
Williams went undrafted in this year’s draft out of East Carolina before landing with the New England Patriots who waived him yesterday.
That gap allows for the Rams to scour the waiver wire for cuts from other teams along with the others they let go to beef up for Week 1. I covered the rules and technicalities governing the practice squad selection on Friday.

Sounds like we’ve got our 10th practice squad member: Georgia Tech S Isaiah Johnson:
