The Los Angeles Rams made three roster moves ahead of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, including the release of Bobby Evans. He’s been waived from the 53-man roster and replaced by Chandler Brewer, who’s officially activated off injured reserve. The Rams also elevated Jared Pinkney from the practice squad for Week 17.
Evans was a third-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2019, so he’s the second player from that class to be cut this season; Darrell Henderson Jr. was waived last month. Evans was active for 12 games and started four games, struggling mightily throughout the year. He was only in line to be a backup this year but injuries forced him into a starting role.
Brewer started two games in Weeks 9 and 10, playing every snap in each of those games before injuring his knee and landing on IR. With Brian Allen out, Brewer provides depth along the offensive line behind the starters and could compete with Oday Aboushi or Matt Skura for a starting spot at guard.
