ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams have waived wide receiver Danario Alexander, a star at Missouri who has not been able to stay on the field in the NFL, with an injury settlement.

Alexander has had multiple surgeries on his left knee and has been dogged by a hamstring injury all summer, participating in a handful of practices and missing the first three preseason games. Alexander had 26 catches with two touchdowns and a 16.6-yard average last season in 10 games, five of them starts.

In a mild surprise, defensive tackle Trevor Laws was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.
