Rams activate WR Mark Clayton from PUP list

The St. Louis Rams got a lift for their struggling offense,

activating wide receiver Mark Clayton from the PUP list.

Third-string quarterback Tom Bradstater was released to make

room for Clayton on the 53-man roster, and the team will likely

attempt to re-sign Brandstater to the practice squad.

Clayton could see action on Sunday at Cleveland. His comeback

from a knee injury has been hampered by an Achilles tendon injury

but he’s felt better the last week or so and on Wednesday said he

was probably about 90 percent.

Clayton was rookie Sam Bradford’s top receiving threat early

last season before injuring his left knee. He caught 22 passes for

300 yards and two touchdowns over the first four games.

For now, the Rams will go with two quarterbacks.
