The Los Angeles Rams promoted former Oklahoma State cornerback Kevin Peterson from their practice squad to the 53-man roster Wednesday.
Peterson played at Oklahoma State from 2012-15, recording 5 interceptions and 113 tackles. After going undrafted, Peterson signed with the Chicago Bears. He signed with the Rams this offseason. The Rams promoted Peterson to the active roster in September but waived him shortly afterward.

The Rams promoted Peterson ahead of their matchup with the New Orleans Saints because of other injuries at the position. Kayvon Webster is dealing with a concussion, and Nickell Robey-Coleman has a thigh injury.
“It’s more of an insurance thing than anything else,” Rams coach Sean McVay said, according to the team website. “Kevin’s a guy that when he’s been asked to be brought up and potentially have the chance to compete, he’s done a nice job. So, we’re taking it one day at a time with Kayvon and Nickell, but Kevin does provide some nice insurance if for whatever reason, those guys aren’t able to go.”
