As with any young squad, the Los Angeles Rams have had to deal with a number of disciplinary issues both on and off the field. After the news broke of Troy Hill’s arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence, the Rams decided to place the second-year cornerback on waivers.
However, that decision did not last long as the Rams promptly picked up Hill just a day after placing him on waivers according to Gary Klein of Los Angeles Times. Rams head coach Jeff Fisher spoke on the decision to bring back the former undrafted Oregon product as a member of the practice squad:
“I think people deserve second chances in life,” Fisher said. “I think he learned from it, but I was just disappointed in his choices.”
Although Los Angeles was swift in their original decision to cut Hill from the team, Fisher never ruled out the possibility of bringing him back. Hill has played well so far this season as a fill-in for an injury-plagued Rams secondary. He currently ranks fourth on the team in total tackles with 38 as well as two pass deflections.
The Rams have played give-and-take with a number of defensive backs so far this season. They recently re-signed Steve Williams and have promoted both Michael Jordan and Blake Countess from the practice squad.
