The Rams have placed quarterback Brandon Allen on injured reserve with a back injury and signed outside linebacker Kasim Edebali as a corresponding roster move.
Los Angeles claimed Allen off waivers form the Jaguars after the quarterback was waived during Jacksonville's roster reduction to 53 players at the end of the preseason. Originally a Jaguars sixth-round pick in 2016 out of Arkansas, Allen served as the Rams' third quarterback this season, and was inactive for all 14 contests.
Edebali originally signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College in 2014. The outside linebacker played three years for the club, recording a total of 8.0 sacks in the process. He signed with the Broncos in March as a free agent but was waived in November. The Lions claimed Edebali, who spent a few weeks with Detroit. But the club waived him on Dec. 13.
The Rams' roster currently stands at 53 players as the team begins its preparation for the Titans in Week 16.
