Los Angeles Rams practice squad tracker

Who are the next 16 (17?) players to be added to the practice squad?

NFL: Los Angeles Rams Training Camp Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Who will the Los Angeles Rams add to the practice squad on Wednesday? Will any Rams get claimed? After cutting down to a 53-man roster on Tuesday, Sean McVay can bring back up to 17 players, including practice squad exemption Max Pircher, and some of those names might be players who were cut by other teams.

We will keep track of the Rams practice squad news in this Rams practice squad news tracker. If you see something on Twitter, add it to the comments section below and we’ll update accordingly.

Rams make no claims, no Rams are claimed

Who is Max Pircher?

The 6’7, 300 lb offensive tackle out of Italy is part of the NFL’s International Pathway Program and so long as a team does not claim him this week and put him on a 53-man roster, he will revert to L.A.’s practice squad. Because of his status in the International program, Pircher will be an exemption and not count against the 16-man limit.

Pircher is very raw, but his unique athleticism (and his hand-eye coordination as a handball fanatic) and size is what makes him an interesting developmental prospect kept on the practice squad. Stay tuned to see who else makes it on Wednesday.

Rams bring back DB T.J. Carter

Defensive back Daniel “Ice ‘Em” Isom returns to the team

The safety snagged the game-sealing interception in the first exhibition game versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

TE Roger Carter, Jr. re-joins as TE3

The rookie UDFA is a hybrid TE/H-back type player, and he returned a special teams fumble for a touchdown during the preseason.

Rams land a big fish - Jacob Harris is back:

OLB Benton Whitley joins p-squad:

Rookie seventh rounder Daniel Hardy made the initial 53-man roster, but he’s likely headed to short-term IR with an ankle injury. Could Whitley or someone like Chris Garrett take his opening on the main roster?

Interesting moves around the NFC West:

The Seattle Seahawks are signing former-Rams QB Sean Mannion to their practice squad. Mannion will backup Geno Smith and Drew Lock, though he may be able to push for playing time later in the year. He reunites with Shane Waldon who was Mannion’s passing game coordinator while he was in Los Angeles.

Other relevant notes:

Sony Michel is returning to Los Angeles, but he’s signing with the Chargers this time. The Rams may explore veteran options at running back, but this rules out a reunion with Michel.
