Reserve/PUP:

Reserve/Suspended:

Orlovsky was signed in July, but he was facing long odds since the Rams already had Jared Goff and Sean Mannion as their top two QBs. Since being drafted in 2005, the 34-year-old has made just 12 career starts.

Rams Release CB Troy Hill

Days after being arrested for a DUI, the Rams announced that they have released cornerback Troy Hill. The team also announced that cornerback Dwayne Gratz has been waived and linebacker Josh Forrest has been placed on injured reserve. To take their spots, cornerback Michael Jordan and linebacker Nic Grigsby are being called up from the practice squad. Troy Hill (vertical)

Hill, 25, entered the league as a Bengals undrafted free agent in 2015 and didn’t play much during his rookie season. This year, he saw an increased role, appearing in every game for the Rams (until this weekend) and starting four contests. As Los Angeles’ fourth cornerback behind Trumaine Johnson, E.J. Gaines, and Lamarcus Joyner, Hill has played on 320 defensive snaps this year, but Pro Football Focus gave him poor marks for his play. His release should have opened a door for Gratz, but he also finds himself out of work.

Forrest, a sixth-round pick, suffered an ACL tear on Sunday. Forrest was Alec Ogletree‘s primary backup at middle linebacker, so they are now without an important reserve. As I suggested yesterday, Grigsby is getting a promotion to help fill the void.

Rams LB Josh Forrest Has ACL Tear?

Josh Forrest‘s promising rookie season could be coming to a premature end. The team fears that he has torn his ACL, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Josh Forrest (vertical)

Taken in the sixth round of the 2016 draft, Forrest has taken on a larger-than-expected role, appearing in all ten games this season and even making four starts. On the year, he has six total tackles, one pass defensed, and one fumble recovery.

Forrest has positioned himself as Alec Ogletree‘s top backup at middle linebacker and the team will probably look to add a linebacker if he is in fact done for the season. The Rams can stay in-house, if they choose, by promoting either Nicholas Grigsby or Lynden Trail from the practice squad.

In other Rams news, the team COO says that there are no hurdles in potentially bringing the Chargers to L.A. And, late last week, cornerback Troy Hill was arrested for a DUI.
