One day after the Rams admitted Adam Carriker had a “significant shoulder injury” they placed the defensive tackle on injured reserve Saturday.
St. Louis also trimmed its roster en route to getting to the 53-man limit. RB Antonio Pittman, who was a fourth-round pick by New Orleans in 2007, was among the notable cuts. He started five games for the Rams last year and averaged 3.7 yards on 79 carries in 12 games.
The Rams also terminated the contracts of vested veterans WR Tim Carter, WR Ronald Curry and S Todd Johnson.
