Here are Monday’s minor moves:
- Elevated: WR Pharoh Cooper, TE Maxx Williams
- Signed from practice squad: QB Logan Woodside
- Waived: LB Nate Landman
Los Angeles Rams
- Claimed (from Titans): DL Larrell Murchison
- Placed on IR: WR Jacob Harris
New England Patriots
- Elevated: LB Jamie Collins, LB Cameron McGrone
New Orleans Saints
- Signed from practice squad: RB David Johnson
- Waived: G Josh Andrews
Collins began his latest Patriots stint by signing with their practice squad Oct. 3, but the veteran linebacker has only played in one game this season. That also came on a Monday night — against the Bears in October. Monday will be Collins’ 87th game as a Patriot. Stints with the Browns and Lions interrupted this run, but the 2013 second-round pick has re-signed with the Patriots three times.
Marcus Mariota‘s IR move created a need for a new Falcons backup. Woodside, who was with Arthur Smith in Tennessee, will step in behind new starter Desmond Ridder this week. Ridder and Woodside are the only two QBs on Atlanta’s active roster or practice squad presently. Harris sustained a torn pectoral muscle Thursday night and will require surgery. A former fourth-round pick, Harris has bounced on and off the Rams’ active roster this season. He be retained via exclusive rights free agent tender next year.
