Rams signed DT John Gill and waived P Tom Malone.

St. Louis' backup defensive tackles have been banged up in camp, so Gill may just be a practice body. Malone lost his camp battle with UDFA Johnny Hekker.

Eagles waived DT John Gill.

WR Brian Hernandez was signed in a corresponding roster move. A former undrafted free agent, Gill hasn't appeared in a game since 2009. He's just 26, but it's highly unlikely he ever plays another NFL down.

Eagles signed DT John Gill.

Gill, a former undrafted free agent out of Northwestern, made two appearances for the Colts in 2009 and then fell out of the league after a bout with alcoholism. He'll be a camp body while Mike Patterson (brain surgery) and Jason Babin (calf) rehab.

Colts placed DT John Gill on the reserve/non-football illness list.

Players placed on reserve/NFI are eligible to return in Week 7, but Gill is expected to miss the season while being treated for alcoholism. His loss will give Mitch King and rookie Ricardo Mathews better shots to make the team.

Colts DT John Gill, arrested early Sunday for public intoxication, could miss the 2010 season as he receives treatment for alcoholism.

Police found Gill passed out in a ditch barefoot with "soiled khaki shorts" Sunday morning. "He's got a problem unfortunately that many Americans are familiar with either in their family or in the workplace," said team president Bill Polian. Gill is on indefinite leave for now.

Indianapolis police announced Sunday that they have dropped the public intoxication charge against Colts DT John Gill.

Police decided to let Gill "sleep off" his drunken stupor, rather than pursue criminal charges. Gill is lucky police were understanding, and won't face any discipline. He still has a chance to make the roster as a fifth tackle.

Colts DT John Gill was arrested early Sunday for public intoxication in Indianapolis.

He was found by police "passed out and unable to stand" in a roadside ditch following the Colts' Saturday live scrimmage. Gill didn't even have any shoes on. A former undrafted free agent, Gill was on the bubble in camp, and Ed Johnson's history with the Colts won't help the Northwestern alum.
