The Los Angeles Rams have announced the first nine members of their practice squad to begin the 2017 regular season:

OL Michael Dunn
OL Jake Eldrenkamp
DB Isaiah Johnson
LB Cassanova McKinzy
WR Paul McRoberts
FB Sam Rogers
OLB Carlos Thompson
TE Travis Wilson


Eligibility

Paraphrased by our friends over at Cincy Jungle:

In most cases, eligibility is limited to players who have been on an active roster for fewer than six games, or were on a 45-man active gameday roster for fewer than nine games.

However, beginning in 2016, the NFL is allowing four players per practice squad to have two accrued seasons, making it easier for teams to have experienced players on their practice squad. In the previous agreement, only two players with two accrued seasons were allowed to be on a practice squad.

A player is allowed on the practice squad for up to two years, with one year counting as six weeks in a season. A third year on the practice squad is only allowed if the team keeps 53 players on their active roster at all times.

Plenty of roster churn to come with one week until the Rams take on the Indianapolis Colts.
