EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams have but a few hours to reach the NFL-mandated maximum of 75 players after releasing 10 players Monday.
The Rams cut 10 players Monday afternoon with nary a surprise in the bunch. The moves, combined with running back Isaiah Pead going to injured reserve last week, brought the roster total down to 79.
The players released Monday include wide receivers T.J. Moe and Jordan Harris, offensive linemen R.J. Dill and D.J. Morrell, fullback Kadeem Jones, cornerback Jarrid Bryant, linebacker Johnny Millard, long snapper Jorgen Hus, kicker/punter Bobby Cowan and linebacker Pat Schiller, who was let go with the waived/injured designation.
The Rams have until 4 p.m. ET Tuesday to make four more moves to get the roster down to 75. They could make additional cuts or, perhaps, shuffle the roster with other injury-related moves such as sending quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) to injured reserve. They might also make a determination on the status of offensive lineman Barrett Jones, who is battling a back injury.
