Brown, 29, signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and was a solid backup to Todd Gurley and others for six seasons.

In 2020, Brown rushed for 419 yards and five touchdowns in 101 carries.

Before last season, he signed with the Miami Dolphins. Brown gained 125 yards and scored a touchdown in 33 carries in seven games before he suffered a quadriceps injury.

Brown is once again the elder in a running back position group that includes Darrell Henderson and Cam Akers.

“Malcolm is a pro’s pro,” offensive coordinator Liam Coen said. “Just does everything the right way, both on and off the field. He’ll be a great example for a ton of our younger players.”

Veteran defensive lineman Aaron Donald is happy to have Brown back on the team.


“He’s just a guy that understands what we’re doing here,” Donald said. “Been here, knows the environment. So, adding him back to the mix is going to be great.”

The Rams signed Jolly off the Cleveland Browns practice squad. He intercepted six passes in four seasons at Appalachian State.


Durant, Long and receiver Van Jefferson (knee) did not practice, according to the Rams injury report. Safety Jordan Fuller (hamstring) was limited. ... The Rams waived linebacker Kier Thomas and running back Trey Ragas.
