ST. LOUIS MO- NOVEMBER 16 Tre Mason #27 of the St. Louis Rams rushes against the Denver Broncos in the third quarter at the Edward Jones Dome

Ayers, a five-year veteran seemingly established as one of the team's starting outside linebackers, was one of the team's final 22 cuts as the Rams set their opening 53-man roster.

Cameron Lynch, who filled in for injured linebacker Mark Barron during part of the preseason, also got dropped Sunday, so it's possible that the Rams could end up with Nicholas Grigsby, a rookie undrafted free agent out of Pitt, starting next to Barron and Alec Ogletree during the September 12 season opener at San Francisco.

After all the drama of cuts down to the final 53, we now have to play the waiting game to see what the depth chart looks like for the Rams heading into their regular-season opener against the San Francisco 49ers.

Ayers, who spent the first three years of his career with the Tennessee Titans, then spent 2014 with the Titans and New England Patriots, was expected to be a starter for the Rams this season.

"We have numbers that are unusual, that we have not had at a number of positions - receivers, offensive line, the secondary", Fisher said.

It was so strong that Spruce overcame an injury in the first preseason game that kept him out of the remainder of the exhibition season.

The most diehard Los Angeles Rams fans might want to contend that the combination of running back Todd Gurley and wide receiver Tavon Austin, fresh off of signing a new contract extension, thanks to a season that saw him use his speed and quickness to gain yards both through the air and on the ground, along with a Jeff Fisher-led defense will be enough to get the team over the.500 mark and possibly into the playoffs. "He's healing up. We feel like he has a chance to contribute and make plays".

Jared Goff was the first-overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, and the Los Angeles Rams are still learning much about his skills on the field and his personality off the field. "And some of the decisions you make are not permanent, and that's all I can say". Akeem has played well for us.

"They showed improvement week after week after week", Fisher said. "And they also showed that they can be productive on special teams in practice, really since the rookie minicamps and the OTAs". We've enjoyed having him. Several of the players cut this weekend could end up on that list. We're kind of hopeful that this is not the end between us and Akeem.

"There are moving parts", Fisher said. I'm pleased with their progress. "We have work to do".

Moving, of course, has been the operative word for the Rams since January, when the National Football League signed off on their return from St. Louis to Los Angeles. "They have a ways to go with their position, but we like where the future is right now with that group". Kush played seven games for the Rams in 2015 and three with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013.

Five of the players were undrafted rookies - linebacker Brandon Chubb, defensive end Morgan Fox, running back Aaron Green, defensive back Michael Jordan and receiver Paul McRoberts.
