The Rams also waived receiver Nelson Spruce on Monday after reaching an injury settlement with the homegrown talent.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars added five players off waivers Sunday and cut third-string quarterback Brandon Allen.
The Jaguars acquired tight end James O'Shaughnessy (New England), defensive tackle Eli Ankou (Houston), linebacker Donald Payne (Baltimore), defensive back Lafayette Pitts (Miami) and offensive tackle William Poehls (Chicago). The Patriots traded with Kansas City to get O'Shaughnessy during the draft, so he's joining his third team in four months.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson knows the numbers. They're not what he expects, not what the team needs and not what the fans want.
He's also trying to do something about it.
In hopes of turning around his sub-par season, Robinson is getting a ball on every passing play in practice. Robinson decided to add the workout wrinkle this week. So third-string quarterback Brandon Allen is throwing Robinson's way on every play in which he's not the primary target.
ATLANTA (AP) — Terron Ward ran for two touchdowns, possibly clinching his roster spot, and the Atlanta Falcons beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 17-15 on Thursday night in each team's final preseason game.
Ward missed the last two games with an ankle sprain but returned just in time to show he can be the team's third running back, behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. He ran for 62 yards on 22 carries.
