When the Rams pulled off their blockbuster trade of Sam Bradford to the Eagles for Nick Foles back in the offseason, they also sent a seventh-round pick to the Texans to re-acquire Case Keenum.

On Tuesday, Rams coach Jeff Fisher announced that Keenum has "locked up" the No. 2 quarterback spot behind Foles.

"He just has a good feel for offense and timing and release and is a natural athlete," Fisher said. "Since the trade he's been able to sit here and really, really grasp the offense, so he has a good feel for what we're doing."

Keenum, who started 10 games over the past two seasons for the Texans, has impressed the Rams throughout training camp and in the three preseason games.

He has completed 20 of 34 passes for 255 yards with one touchdown and a QB rating of 92.2.
