Well if the LA Rams are not going to report on their roster cuts with just an hour left before the initial 53-man roster deadline, then the reporters at the practice field will simply gather their own information based on who takes the field. Whoever is not on the field? Well, things are not looking good for their roster chances.
The problem is that the Rams must complete all cuts to get to the initial 53-man roster by 1:00 pm PT today, August 31st. So far the team has made nine such cuts, which means 18 more must go. That is a large number of players, which means that the team has likely already met with them, and is coordinating one batch reporting of all transactions for the day on or about the deadline.
Max Pircher is a roster exception. So in addition to him. the LA Rams appear to have gotten 50 players onto the football field. The deadline for roster cuts to be turned into the NFL office has now come and gone. The time was 1:00 pm PT, and at the time of completing this article, that time has come and gone. Not official reports have been published on the team’s official website as of yet.
That means we wait some more. And while we do so, here are the players who were observed practicing today. THIS IS NOT THE OFFICIAL ROSTER LIST, so please understand that this merely names the players practicing. As we had reported earlier today, players who the Rams intend to designated with a short-term return date will be transferred to Injured Reserve after the initial 53-man roster has been established.
So who showed up on the practice field today per ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry’s observations?
