The Los Angeles Rams cut down their roster to 53-players on Tuesday. However, now they will need to finalize their roster and also put together their 16-man practice squad. The Rams’ practice squad will likely be made up mostly of players they cut, but don’t be surprised if the Rams look at outside options as well.

2022 seventh-round pick, AJ Arcuri is headed to the Rams’ practice squad. Arcuri played well in the final two preseason games and is a player Los Angeles will continue to develop.
This move shouldn't come as a surprise. Undrafted free agent safety, Tanner Ingle, is headed to the Rams’ practice squad after a strong training camp.
The Rams and linebacker Troy Reeder are re-uniting. The two sides parted ways last offseason after Reeder started 10 games in 2021. Reeder spent last year with the Los Angeles Chargers and was with the Minnesota Vikings this offseason.
