The Los Angeles Rams will have Micah Kiser again, activating the fourth-year linebacker from the practice squad in time to play in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. Kiser was a surprise cut this year after having been a starter at inside linebacker in 2020, but new practice squad rules essentially mean that we don’t have a true “53-man roster” anymore.

There is a 55-man roster in some ways, because teams can now activate up to two players from the practice squad for game day. There is just a limit to how many times a team can do that before having to make the player a part of the 53-man roster or to risk losing him to another team. This is the first time that Kiser has been active in 2021.

The Rams also activated linebacker Justin Lawler, and this will be his second activation this season after having been called up to face the Chicago Bears in Week 1.
