Brandon Powell has emerged as a stud in the return game for the Rams, making a huge impact since taking over that role on special teams. The Rams have been promoting him from the practice squad on game days but he’ll have a more permanent spot now.
The team announced Wednesday that Powell has been signed to the active roster, a reward for the job he’s done in the return game lately. The Rams also brought back J.J. Koski after waiving him this week, signing him to the practice squad.
The Rams had an opening on the 53-man roster after waiving Koski, so Powell took his spot.
Powell made one of the biggest plays of the season against the Vikings when he returned a punt 61 yards for a touchdown, earning NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors for the return. This season, he’s returned four punts for 93 yards and six kickoffs for 172 yards, including a 65-yarder.
