Rams designate CB Duke Shelley to return from IR

Cornerback help is on the way for the Los Angeles Rams, not that they desperately need it. On Wednesday, the Rams designated Duke Shelley to return from injured reserve. That makes him eligible to return to practice immediately, and they’ll have 21 days to officially activate him from IR.

Shelley has been on injured reserve since the end of November after tweaking his hamstring in the Rams’ win over the Cardinals in Week 12. He’s been active in 11 games this season and has eight tackles with two passes defensed and a fumble recovery, which came against the Packers.

Shelley will be the fourth cornerback behind Ahkello Witherspoon, Cobie Durant and Derion Kendrick, giving the Rams some depth at an important position for the playoffs.
