The Los Angeles Rams cut their Week 9 starting quarterback in order to make room on the 53-man roster for veteran signal-caller Carson Wentz on Tuesday. The Rams are hoping to have Matthew Stafford back in Week 11, but they added Wentz as a critical depth piece just in case.
The Los Angeles Rams cut a QB
According to Adam Schefter with ESPN, the Rams cut running back Myles Gaskin and Quarterback Dresser Winn. But the big surprise of the cuts, Brett Rypien, was waived Tuesday.
Bye-week changes to help make room for Carson Wentz: Rams released RB Myles Gaskin, QB Brett Rypien and QB Dresser Winn.

Rypien started the Rams Week 9 contest against the Green Bay Packers. Rypien went 13/28 passing for 130 yards and one interception in the Rams 20-3 loss to the Packers. His inability to move the ball made it easy for the Rams to want to add a veteran like Wentz.
However, it’s surprising the Rams wanted Rypien off the 53-man roster altogether. The Rams currently don’t have a quarterback to use as an emergency third option.
