We noted this afternoon that the Rams were considering adding practice squad wide receiver Danario Alexander to the 53-man roster, and now they’re set to do just that.
Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports that the Rams will sign Alexander off their practice squad this week.
Although Alexander was passed over in the 2010 draft and didn’t sign with the Rams until August because of concerns about his knee, Caplan reports that Alexander hasn’t had any issues with his knee in practice, and the Rams no longer feel the need to bring him along slowly. The Rams think he can contribute this season.
That’s good news for a team that has already lost receivers Donnie Avery and Mark Clayton to knee injuries.
