Rams Promote Isaiah Johnson, Sign Marcus Sayles to Practice Squad

Check out the best photos from the Rams game against the Eagles.

After placing cornerback Kayvon Webster on injured reserve, the Rams have added some depth to its active roster and practice squad.

Los Angeles promoted defensive back Isaiah Johnson from its practice squad to its active roster on Wednesday. Johnson has spent the last two seasons with the Rams, mainly on the practice squad. He appeared in three games for the club last year, primarily as a special teams contributor. This season, the Rams promoted Johnson from their practice squad to their active roster for the Nov. 5 victory over the Giants. But Johnson was inactive for the contest.

The Lions originally signed Johnson as a undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech in 2015, and he appeared in six games for the club that year. After spending the offseason and training camp with Detroit, the club waived Johnson during final roster cuts. That's when Johnson landed with L.A.

The Rams also re-signed cornerback Marcus Sayles to its practice squad. An undrafted free agent out of West Georgia, Sayleas previously signed with Los Angeles' practice squad on Nov. 22 but had his contract terminated on Dec. 5.

With the two moves, the Rams' active roster now stands at 53 players and its practice squad is now at 10.
