The Los Angeles Rams are currently a little banged up on defense, as defensive lineman Robert Quinn, William Hayes and Michael Brockers are all questionable for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
While their defensive line is banged up, their secondary is just getting healthy as cornerback E.J. Gaines returned in Week 4 after missing all of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 with a Lisfranc fracture.
With the return of Gaines, cornerback Coty Sensabaugh found himself out of a starting position, as he saw very limited playing time in Week 4. With so much in question with the defensive line just a day before a game, the Rams front office felt a roster move was needed in case any of the three injured defensive lineman are not able to play.
According to Myles Simmons of therams.com, the team has cut Sensabaugh in order to promote defensive tackle Morgan Fox from the practice squad:

Sensabaugh was in his first year with the Rams after spending four seasons with the Tennessee Titans. He had 10 tackles in the first three games this season.
The 2012 first round draft pick will likely be signed by another team in the coming days.
The Rams signed Fox as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State in 2016. He was signed to the practice squad after failing to make the active roster out of training camp.
In the teams final preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings Fox had two sacks and two tackles for loss.
