Last week against the Seattle Seahawks, the Los Angeles Rams’ practice squad promotions were obvious. They were forced to elevate Brett Maher and Brett Rypien, needing a kicker and backup quarterback on the game day roster for Week 1.
With Maher and Rypien now on the 53-man roster, the Rams didn’t need to promote them. So instead, they elevated running back Royce Freeman and wide receiver Austin Trammell. Neither player took a snap with the Rams in the opener against Seattle, spending the week on the practice squad.
Freeman and Trammell were both signed to the practice squad after final roster cuts were made before Week 1.
LA Rams Transactions:
• Activated, from Practice Squad RB Royce Freeman, WR Austin Trammell
