The Rams' released 10 players in anticipation of the 53-man roster limit, which goes into effect Saturday.
I've singled out eight of them on our chart of Rams players with practice-squad eligibility. The eighth and ninth players released, veteran safety Jerome Carter, and cornerback Tanard Davis, have no such eligibility.
Expect the Rams to make their remaining cuts before the 6 p.m. ET deadline Saturday.
The Rams are carrying 66 players once they move Steven Jackson to the active roster from the exempt list.
Die-hard alert: Updated roided-out NFC West rosters here.Earlier: The chart shows each of the Rams' players with practice-squad eligibility, according to the team.
Practice-squad rules can be confusing, and exceptions sometimes apply to relatively experienced players.
I've categorized each player based on his perceived likelihood of earning a spot on the 53-man roster. Those are rough characterizations. Teams still have not made decisions. It's conceivable that a player listed as a "keeper" could face his release.
