NFL: Who's not on the roster anymore after Week 7

The week the following teams released players Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons and St. Louis Rams.

NFL: Who's not on the roster anymore after Week 7 Who got cut this week from the football teams? We start with the winless St. Louis Rams (0-7), who released offensive guard Claude Terrell after he was arrested and charged with assault. According to the police reports, Claude Terrell was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault-family violence, after assaulting his wife in a hotel in Texas. Terrell's legal problems are now quite serious, as he was still on probation for another family member assault in 2006. At this time the Rams have not said who will fill in Terrell's spot in the roster. St. Louis Rams are playing the Cleveland Browns (3-3) on Sunday, the Rams are underdog at Bookmaker with odds +145, the spread is favoring the Browns - 3 points.

 The Houston Texans (3-4) cut running back Samkon Gado on Tuesday, after he failed to get the numbers previously achieved with the Packers. The Texans signed Gado from Green Bay in 2006 in exchange for Vernand Morency, after the rookie running back started in five games for the Packers and ran for 582 yards and 6 touchdowns. But his game with the Texans was far from perfect, Gado started in three games this season, rushing 18 times for a total of 46 yards. Gado's spot on the roster will be filled in by recently signed Adimchinobe Echemandu. The Houston Texans are scheduled to play the San Diego Chargers, but NFL is sill debating the future of this match-up due to the California wildfires.

 And finally, yesterday the Atlanta Falcons (1-6) surprised many by announcing that they are releasing veteran defensive tackle Grady Jackson. No explanation was given about the release, coach Bobby Petrino is scheduled to address the move later today. Grady Jackson has started in 22 of the last 23 games with 19 tackles and one sack this season. Washburn rookie Trey Lewis will take Jackson's place as a starter. The Falcons are off this week.
