After spending the first 12 weeks of the season on the practice rosters of the St. Louis Rams and Philadelphia Eagles, former UConn Huskies linebackers Scott Lutrus and Greg Lloyd find themselves on 53-man rosters in the NFL.

Lutrus, who was undrafted, had been on the Rams practice squad all season before was signed away on Tuesday by the Indianapolis Colts. He has been among the final cuts by the Jacksonville Jaguars before the season started and joined the Rams practice squad on September 5th.

He had battled injuries through his time at UConn but it appears now he's healthy enough to play in the NFL. He'll actually get a mini-homecoming on Sunday as the Colts are in Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots.

With Moise Fokou being placed on the season-ending injured reserve, Lloyd has been signed from Eagles practice squad to their 53-man roster.

Lloyd was a seventh round pick of the Eagles in the 2011 NFL Draft and also was among the final cuts. Obviously the Eagles saw something in him as he was signed to their practice squad and now he'll get to show them why.
