Former Clemson OT to be promoted by Rams

Former Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle will be promoted this week to the Rams' active roster this week according to Rams' head coach Jeff Fisher.
The Rams have had two offensive lineman Jamon Brown and Darrell Williams go down with season-ending injuries in last week's game against the Bears.
Battle will be promoted to the active roster to create some depth on the offensive line.
He was selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft on July 9th. He was the first player chosen in the supplemental draft since 2012 (WR Josh Gordon).
The Rams had to forfeit their team's 2016 NFL 5th round pick for selecting Battle.
