Tuesday the Rams waived cornerback Troy Hill as part of a series of roster moves, three days after Hill was arrested on suspicion of DUI, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.
The Rams also waived fellow cornerback Dwayne Gratz and placed rookie linebacker Josh Forrest on injured reserve after Forrest suffered a knee injury on Sunday that will put him out four to six weeks. Cornerback Michael Jordan and linebacker Nic Grigsby were promoted from the practice squad to take their place on the active roster.
Hill’s Mercedes swerved over multiple lanes on an L.A. freeway and crashed into the back of a semi-truck at around 8 a.m. PT on Saturday, according to multiple reports. Hill was then given a field sobriety test and arrested on the spot, booked in Van Nuys, California, and deactivated by the Rams for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
