CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

St. Louis Rams 7th round pick, Michael Sam survives first round of cuts.

The Rams made the necessary moves to get the team to the required 75 players on Tuesday. Rams have placed quarterback Sam Bradford and center Demetrius Rhaney on injured reserve.

Michael Sam is the first active player in NFL history to be openly gay. He posted two sacks against the Cleveland Browns Saturday night, one of which was on Johnny Manziel and proceeded to do the infamous "Money sign" that Manziel does after a touchdown.

Through three preseason games, Sam has five tackles and three sacks.

The Rams must trim their roster to 53 players by Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.
