Rams Roster Move III: Activating TE/WR Jacob Harris for Week 3
As expected, the LA Rams are activating TE/WR Jacob Harris for the second consecutive game. The offense needs a boost, and despite the addition of former tight end Kendall Blanton, the team needs help now. Of course, the Rams front office had some options, as there were ‘hints’ at the team activating TE Roger Carter for Week 3, which held a number of fascinating options on the team’s offense.
But pulling Harris up for Week 2 feels much more of a special team’s need. A number of players who are suddenly out for Week 3 had a presence on the coverage unit, and the team is compensating by returning one of the better coverage players for another go.
I would be absolutely floored if this is more. After all, Harris has so much offensive potential. Right now, the Rams need to believe that Week 3 will be an offensive shootout
Rams Roster Move IV: Signing OLB Keir Thomas to the practice squad
When the LA Rams waived OLB Keir Thomas, the move was purely a numbers game. Just as the team’s moving Van Jefferson to IR, the roster injuries are compelling the team to make tough decisions to navigate through the current injury-induced choppy waters.
The good news is that outside linebacker Keir Thomas, a player who is deservedly firmly in the Rams’ future plans, cleared waivers. Having done so, he has been signed to the team’s practice squad, a spot he would likely have claimed earlier in the season if not for the untimely injury to rookie teammate Daniel Hardy.
Thomas will be back in the Rams News at some point. Thankfully, he is back with the Rams now.
