Former Rams second-round pick RB Isaiah Pead officially cleared waivers on Thursday and will now revert to the team’s injured reserve list.
Pead, 24, suffered a torn ACL during Saturday’s second preseason game. The injury was obvious as he wasn’t contacted by a Packers players before going down.
Given the fact that he suffered a serious injury, it’s not all that surprising to see him go unclaimed.
The St. Louis Rams have waived/injured former second-round pick RB Isaiah Pead on Wednesday, according to Tom Pelissero.
- Pelissero adds that Pead will revert to injured reserve if no one claims him off of waivers.

During Pead’s two years with the Rams, he has ran for 75 yards on 17 carries (4.4 YPC) while contributing another 94 yards receiving on 14 receptions.
