Ed "Pi Double I" Henderson
The Los Angeles Rams have resigned rookie safety Juju Hughes back to their active roster. Hughes, widely known for his toothpick from "Hard Knocks," did not survive the final 53-man roster cuts; however, he added to the priority practice squad.
Two weeks ago, the Ram's added Hughes to the active roster after starting safety Jordan Fuller injured his shoulder against the Buffalo Bills early in the first half. Fuller missed the next game against the New York Giants before playing Sunday against the Washington Football Team. Fuller injured re-injured his shoulder late in the game and placed on the injured reserve list.
In Hughes's first NFL game, he played sparingly against the Giants and recorded one tackle in his debut. Hughes has an excellent opportunity of gaining much playing time behind Taylor Rapp, who replaces Fuller in the starting lineup.
In a corresponding move the Rams added defensive lineman Eric Banks to their practice squad. Rams released Banks last weekend after activating rooking EDGE rusher Terrel Lewis.
