The St. Louis Rams released wide receiver Austin Pettis on Monday, citing roster concerns elsewhere.

Pettis was inactive for Sunday's victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

FOX Sports 1 NFL Insider Mike Garafolo reported that Pettis missed a meeting on Saturday. He caught 12 passes for 118 yards and one touchdown this season. He made 11 starts in four seasons with the Rams, who drafted him in the third round in 2011.

The Rams also released wide receiver Emory Blake from the practice squad.

Scouting Report

Week 7: Pettis vs. 49ers
Austin Pettis caught three-of-four targets for 15 yards in the Rams’ Week 6 loss to the 49ers. Pettis does a nice job finding holes in zone coverage and sitting down for passes in the short-to-intermediate range. That said, he doesn’t have the speed or explosion to be a home run hitter in the passing game and thus, he’s limited as a fantasy player. Leave him on your waiver wire.
