Rams release OL Ojinnaka

The St. Louis Rams have released offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka, who was benched for Sunday's game against Green Bay after starting the previous five games at left guard.

Ojinnaka was in his first season with the Rams. He appeared in nine games with the Colts last season and played eight games for New England in 2010 after making 12 starts over four years with Atlanta.

Shelley Smith replaced Ojinnaka in the starting lineup on Sunday.
