Rams Place Isaiah Pead On Injured Reserve

THURSDAY, 3:55pm: Pead has cleared waivers and has been placed on the Rams’ injured reserve list, according to Brian McIntyre (via Twitter).

WEDNESDAY, 8:51pm: The Rams have waived-injured running back Isaiah Pead, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today (on Twitter). Pead will land on St. Louis’ injured reserve if no one claims him.

Pead suffered a torn ACL late last week which ended his 2014 season before it even began. Pead, who was drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft to be an heir apparent to Steven Jackson, was said to be on the roster bubble this offseason after Rams used this year’s second round pick to grab Auburn tailback Tre Mason. With Benny Cunningham also on the depth chart to support starter Zac Stacy, Pead was rendered expendable.
