Rams promoted S Nate Ness from the practice squad.

Ness was waived only a week ago. He was held off the stat-sheet in two games earlier this season. Although he could see a few snaps in St. Louis' injury-ravaged secondary, most of Ness' playing time should come on special teams.

Wed, Nov 3, 2010 05:46:00 PM

Seahawks waived DB Nate Ness.

Ness played in just one game for the Seahawks, contributing five tackles. He offers the ability to play safety as well as cornerback, but is more of a practice squad type.

Dolphins waived DB Nate Ness, DB Ross Weaver, WR Julius Pruitt, S Jonathan Amaya, OL Andrew Hartline, and FB Rolly Lumbala.

Sat, Sep 4, 2010 09:14:00 PM

Dolphins DB Nate Ness was all over the field in Saturday night's preseason opener against the Buccaneers.

Ness broke up a goal line pass and helped secure the Dolphins victory by forcing a crucial fumble. He's doing everything he can to try make the team, and coach Tony Sparano indicated that he'd be "crazy" not to give him a longer look.

Nate Ness worked as a cornerback at the Dolphins' minicamp over the weekend.

Ness has been a safety throughout his career, but has been on an active roster just once in the NFL since going undrafted in 2009. Versatility can't hurt Ness in his quest to make the team.

Ness, an undrafted free agent from Arizona, lasted only a week on the roster. He's been with three different organizations since April's draft snubbing.
