The Rams announced their 10-man practice squad on Monday afternoon, which will help the team prepare for its home and away contests.

Eight members of the unit were with the Rams during the preseason, and therefore know plenty about St. Louis’ systems. Those players include two of the team’s late-round draft picks, quarterback Garrett Gilbert and safety Christian Bryant. Gilbert threw for 158 yards, and Bryant recorded four total tackles through the four preseason contests.

The other two members came from the Panthers and Saints. The first, linebacker Denicos Allen, spent the preseason with Carolina. The undrafted rookie led Michigan State last season in tackles with 98, helping the Spartans win its first Rose Bowl since 1988. He’s listed at 5-foot-11 and 218 pounds, and recorded three total preseason tackles.

The second, Kevin Reddick, is also a linebacker listed at 6-foot-1 and 243 pounds. The North Carolina product signed with New Orleans last year as an undrafted free agent, having been named first-team ALL-ACC as a senior. He recorded 11 total tacklers and a forced fumble in 2013 with the Saints.
