The Los Angeles Rams are signing quarterback Brett Rypien to the active 53-man roster from the practice squad on Thursday, according to a source. Rypien's signing comes a day after the Rams placed rookie quarterback Stetson Bennett on the Non-Football Injury list for undisclosed reasons. With Bennett out for a bit, Rypien, 27, will serve as starter Matthew Stafford's primary backup, beginning in Week 2 against the visiting San Francisco 49ers. In his three seasons in the NFL with the Denver Broncos, Rypien has gone 80-for-130 (61.5 completion percentage) for 778 yards, four touchdowns and eight interceptions in eight games played (three starts).

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Brett Rypien played most of the team's offensive drives in Friday's 41-0 preseason loss to the Denver Broncos. Rypien completed 7-of-13 passes for 67 yards while rushing for two yards on one attempt. The Boise State product is competing with Stetson Bennett for the team's backup quarterback behind Matthew Stafford. Bennett played poorly in this game, and Rypien showcased his ability not to turn the ball over as much as the rookie. This decision will be something to watch as the season approaches and the final depth charts are released.
