    Well, freak me. I was hoping that Wilson would get a chance to show what he was capable of. He certainly put up a good amount of statistics, that's for sure.

    If not mistaken, they still count towards the 90 man roster limit, but while they remain on this list, they will not be able to practice until cleared medically. This could/should follow with being swtiched to the PUP List, which, if they remain on that throughout the entire training camp, will allow them to be placed on the PUP/IR list, and not eligible until Week 6 of the regular season.

    Roster rules summary
    In addition to the IR list, NFL teams use other mechanisms to manage their roster play list. A summary of those rules follows:

    • Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) — Players listed on the PUP’s regular season list are eligible to play after week 6, at which point they can begin practicing with the team.

      The team has a three-week window to either activate the player or send him to the injured reserve list. A player can be placed on the PUP list only if he has been on the preseason PUP list and has not been practicing with the team.

    • Waived/Injured — Teams are able to waive an injured player. Other teams can claim any player on the Waived/Injured list. If players clear their waivers, which most players do, their original team can either put them on the IR list or come to an injury settlement agreement and part ways.

    • Reserve/Non-Football Injury List — The rules for this list are the same as the PUP list; however, the injuries come from something other than playing football.

    But wait, didn't Bryant's ankle injury come from playing football? Or is only NFL injuries?

    It is classified a "non-football" due to the fact that it is "pre-existing" and did not occur while a member of the Rams.

    From what Jim Thomas is tweeting, none of these players have played a down of football in the NFL.

    We are talking about a 90 man roster that will be trimmed down to 53 - plus an 8 man practice squad. Very likely that these guys (sans Westbrook, Bryant, and just maybe Schiller) aren't going to be a part of the final product. But you never know where that hidden gem will come from and thats one of the fun parts. Maybe Lawrence Wilson jerseys will be everywhere when the Rams are hosting the Cardinals in the NFC Championship game.

    Its not a surprise that Bryant would be on this list. Fisher spoke at the end of OTAs and said he anticipated that he most likely wouldn't be ready at the start of camp. I anticipate that he may be the one guy who stays on the PUP list, and finds his way to the PUP/IR list and gets his "medical red-shirt" year.

    Westbrooks, on the other hand, injured something the last week of OTAs, and is somewhat of a surprise to appear on this list. How long he stays on it, could impact his status dramatically.

    Pat Schiller was on the Falcons PS last season and they had a ton of injuries at that position and he was never activated, he played at Northern Illinois

    On Tuesday, the Bears waived Jeremy Cain and signed linebacker Lawrence Wilson to the practice squad.

    Cain played in Chicago's last two games, filling in at long-snapper in Mannelly's absence.

    The 26-year-old Wilson spent the 2013 preseason with the Bears, registering five tackles and two special teams tackles.
    Wilson was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the sixth-round of the 2011 Draft out of the University of Connecticut where he was named to the All-Big East First Team in his junior and senior seasons. In addition to the Bears and Panthers, he has spent time with the Tennessee Titans and New Orleans Saints, but hasn't appeared in a regular season contest.

    Dill was with the Chiefs and Morrell was with the Lions.
