The revolving door at cornerback continues for the St. Louis Rams. The team has placed Tim Atchison on the injured reserve list with a hamstring injury and promoted Josh Gordy from the practice squad to the active roster to take Atchison's place.
Gordy, 5-11, 195, entered the league in 2010 as an undrafted rookie with Jacksonville. He subsequently spent 10 weeks on Green Bay's practice squad, and then played in two late-season games for the Packers, recording one special teams tackle.
After being released by the Packers at the end of this preseason, he was signed to the Rams' practice squad two weeks ago. A native of Augusta, Ga., Gordy was a four-year starter at Central Michigan.
His brother, Christopher Edwards, was a linebacker at Georgia Tech. His cousin, Robert Edwards, was a first-round pick by New England in 1998 at running back. Another cousin, Berry Gordy, was the founder of the Motown record label.
Gordy's spot on the practice squad has been filled with the Rams re-signing running back Chase Reynolds after a one-week hiatus.
