Los Angeles Rams waive S Isaiah Johnson, sign OT Darrell Williams to practice squad

The move leaves one spot open once RG Jamon Brown is activated...

The Los Angeles Rams have been actively re-working the backend of the 53-man roster today.

Earlier today, the Rams waived QB Brandon Allen and dropped QB Luis Perez and TE Temarrick Hemingway from the practice squad. They also worked out three players in G Ian Silberman, OT David Steinmetz and OT Darrell Williams.

Well tonight we get word they signed one of those three to the practice squad...and waived a player from the 53-man as well.

S Isaiah Johnson, waived

Huh. Well that’s interesting. This one was a little surprising. The move to waive Allen clearly corresponded to the return of RG Jamon Brown to the 53-man who is coming off of his two-game suspension.

This though didn’t have an obvious corresponding move. Could this cryptic tweet from WR KhaDarel Hodge clue us in as to who replaces Johnson?

OT Darrell Williams, Jr., signed

So Williams will join the practice squad in one of the two places left open by Perez and Hemingway. One would be fair to think Allen would take the other one if he clears waivers.

We did get news today that the Detroit Lions waived OL Jamil Demby. Perhaps he could be involved in a return?

Might want to keep tabs on roster moves this week.

With the Los Angeles Chargers coming to the Coliseum in Week 3, the roster and the Sunday inactives could be a major change this weekend.
