The St. Louis Rams have released injured running back Isaiah Pead.

Pead suffered a torn ACL on Saturday in the Rams last preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. Should he clear waivers, he will go on the Rams injured reserve list.

He will miss the entire 2014 season with his injury. Pead is a former second round pick, who had two years left on his rookie contract.

However, since it is going to take at least one calendar year for Pead to come back, the team could actually move on. If they do, the two sides may have to agree to a settlement.

The Rams could also place him on waivers, which would mean the new team would give him a fresh start in 2015. Plus, this new team would also have to pay him moving forward.
