Rams release Thomas, place Robinson on IR

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams have released defensive tackle Hollis Thomas and placed wide receiver Laurent Robinson on injured reserve, among a number of moves for the 0-3 team.

Wide receiver Nate Jones, defensive tackle Leger Douzable and linebacker Dominic Douglas were promoted from the practice squad to the active roster. Wide receiver Sean Walker, defensive tackle Marlon Favorite, linebacker Jay Moore and linebacker Justin Pollard were signed to the practice squad.

The 35-year-old Thomas was a reserve in three games and had four tackles. Robinson, who leads the Rams with 13 receptions with one touchdown, suffered a high right ankle sprain with a fractured leg and will undergo surgery.

Douglas and Jones were among the final cuts before the season opener. Douzable was signed to the practice squad on Sept. 17.
