  • Royce Freeman: Reverts to Rams' practice squad

    Freeman reverted to the Rams' practice squad after Monday's 19-16 loss at Cincinnati.

    Just like in Week 2, Freeman played exclusively on special teams in the Rams' defeat Monday. The Rams will be able to elevate him one more time this season before they'd have to sign him to the active roster for him to be eligible to suit up.

  • Rams' Royce Freeman: Bumped up from practice squad

    Freeman was elevated to the Rams' active roster ahead of Monday's game against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Freeman was also elevated ahead of the team's Week 2 matchup with the 49ers before reverting to the practice squad last Monday. He played nine snaps on special teams while the team chose to leave rookie Zach Evans inactive. It's likely the same scenario unfolds in Week 3.

  • Royce Freeman: Reverts to practice squad

    Freeman reverted back to the Rams' practice squad Monday.

    Freeman was called up to the active roster ahead of Sunday's loss to the 49ers with Cam Akers and Zach Evans both being healthy scratches. The 27-year-old's only action came on special teams, as he played nine snaps while Kyren Williams handled the bulk of the rushing workload.

  • Rams' Royce Freeman: Elevated to active roster

    The Rams have elevated Freeman to the active roster ahead of Sunday's matchup with the 49ers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Freeman landed on Los Angeles' practice squad after failing to make it through final roster cuts. The Rams are opting to load up on rushing options, as the veteran back will be the No. 5 on the depth chart. He is more likely to make an impact on special teams if he indeed sees the field.

  • Royce Freeman: Joins LA's practice squad

    The Rams signed Freeman to their practice squad, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

    Freeman did not make the Rams' 53-man roster, but the veteran running back will remain in Los Angeles as a member of the team's practice squad. Freeman will practice with the team and provide a depth option if the Rams need to call him up to the active roster due to injuries.

  • Royce Freeman: Released by LAR

    The Rams released Freeman on Tuesday.

    Freeman finished the preseason with 13 carries for 46 rushing yards, adding four receptions for 10 yards. However, the 2018 third-round pick didn't do enough to land a spot on the Rams' initial 53-man roster. Freeman could garner some attention in free agency, but he hasn't been productive since his time in Denver (2018-2020).

  • Rams' Royce Freeman: Posts 36 all-purpose yards in loss

    Freeman rushed four times for 14 yards, brought in two of three targets for seven yards and returned one kickoff for 15 yards in the Rams' 41-0 preseason loss to the Broncos on Saturday night.

    The veteran was the second running back to log a touch behind Ronnie Rivers and enjoyed a versatile role. Freeman wraps up the exhibition slate with a modest 46 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries, adding four receptions for 10 yards. He may have arguably outperformed rookie sixth-round pick Zach Evans yet didn't do as much as Rivers, but Freeman's ability to play special teams could be his ticket to a potential No. 4 running back role.

  • Rams' Royce Freeman: Four touches in defeat

    Freeman rushed twice for six yards and caught both of his targets for three yards during Saturday's 34-17 preseason loss to the Raiders.

    Freeman saw the least playing time of the trio of running backs used by the Rams on Saturday and also made the least contributions. Ronnie Rivers (9-42-0) and Zach Evans (8-20-0 and a seven-yard reception) both saw ample touches during their time on the field, and Rivers looked particularly efficient for the second straight preseason game. With Cam Akers and Kyren Williams locks to make the roster and Rivers grinding his way into a spot of his own, it may come down to Freeman and the rookie Evans for a roster spot that is conditioned on the Rams choosing to keep four running backs on the team.

  • Rams' Royce Freeman: Scores in Saturday's win

    Freeman rushed seven times for 26 yards and a touchdown and failed to bring in his only target during the Rams' 34-17 preseason loss to the Chargers on Friday night.

    The veteran recorded a three-yard scoring rush late in the third quarter, with Freeman the third running back into the contest for the Rams after Ronnie Rivers and Zach Evans. The 27-year-old Freeman may need Los Angeles to keep four running backs in order to stick on the roster, so he'll have to continue making an impact during next Saturday night's preseason home matchup versus the Raiders in order to keep his chances strong.

  • Rams' Royce Freeman: Finds new home

    Freeman signed a contract with the Rams on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Freeman's addition to the Los Angeles roster comes one day after Sony Michel's retirement. The former struggled the last two seasons in Houston, playing just 11 games between 2021 and 2022 and earning 76 carries for 209 yards (2.8 YPC) and no touchdowns. He'll now work to earn a depth role in the Rams backfield.

  • Texans' Royce Freeman: Stymied in finale

    Freeman rushed seven times for 15 yards and brought in his only target for two yards in the Texans' 32-31 win over the Colts on Sunday.

    Freeman was unable to take advantage of what had been an inconsistent Indy run defense, gaining nearly half his meager rushing yardage total on a seven-yard scamper and netting just eight yards on his other six totes. The journeyman back has appeared in 11 games with the Texans over the last two seasons and is on an expiring contract, and it remains to be seen if he'll have a chance to claim a complementary role behind the promising Dameon Pierce (IR-ankle) in training camp next summer.

  • Texans' Royce Freeman: Leads backs in snaps

    Freeman had seven carries for 19 yards and caught three of five targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 31-3 loss to the Jaguars in Week 17.

    Freeman (30 snaps) and Dare Ogunbowale (26 snaps) once again were the top backs on offense, but neither had a productive day. Freeman's 39 combined yards paced the backfield. Expect a similar backfield mix, with a bit of Rex Burkhead thrown in, for next week's season finale against the Colts.
