Rams Bring Back Brandon McGee

The St. Louis Rams shook up their practice squad on Tuesday afternoon as they began preparation for their Week 2 matchup against the Washington Redskins. Safety Jacob Hagen and cornerback Trovon Reed were released, while cornerbacks Brandon McGee and Melvin White were added to the 10-man practice squad. McGee and White are both more viable options to come up to the 53-man roster and contribute should the Rams need another corner soon with Trumaine Johnson coming off a concussion and just three other cornerbacks on the roster.

McGee, who was selected out of Miami by the Rams in the fifth round of the 2013 draft, was released during the final cutdown to 53 players, but he now returns to the organization after just one week away. The 5-foot-11, 193-pounder has been almost constantly injured during his Rams career thus far; in fact, the leading factor in his release was the fact that he missed almost all of training camp this year with a foot injury. He’s apparently healthy to practice now, though, and with 17 NFL games under his belt, he’s a more reliable emergency backup at corner than Reed.
