The Rams apparently felt they did not have the luxury of waiting for rookie receiver Brooks Foster to recover from ankle surgery over the next couple of months, so they placed him on injured reserve.

That comes as no surprise. Roster spots are precious and Foster, a fifth-round choice, faced a transition even without the injury. With a flurry of moves featuring Tye Hill's trade to Atlanta and Joe Klopfenstein's outright release, the Rams complied with the 75-man roster limit with room to spare.

The Seahawks have yet to announce how they plan to clear one roster spot. The chart shows roster counts by position, not counting unsigned 49ers rookie Michael Crabtree. How long will Seattle carry two kickers?
