ST. LOUIS (AP) — Wide receivers Donnie Avery and Mardy Gilyard were among 20 players waived by the St. Louis Rams on Saturday to reach the 53-man roster.

The Rams decided to keep deep threat Danario Alexander (Mizzou) despite concerns about his left knee, which has undergone five operations. Wide receiver Mark Clayton, signed last week while still rehabbing a surgically repaired knee, was placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list.

St. Louis also gave the backup quarterback job to A.J. Feeley by waiving Thaddeus Lewis, who made a strong challenge in the preseason after spending last year on the practice squad. Linebacker Zac Diles, signed to a free-agent deal this summer, also was cut.

The Rams also waived defensive backs Tim Atchison and Tae Evans; tight end Demarco Crosby; defensive backs Tae Evans and Jonathan Nelson; defensive tackles Marlon Favorite, John Henderson and Daniel Muir; offensive tackles Kevin Hughes and Ryan McKee; wide receiver Greg Mathews; guard Quinn Ojinnaka; tight end Fendi Onobun; running backs Chase Reynolds and Keith Toston; and defensive end George Selvie.
