Witherspoon, who dealt with a hamstring injury during the offseason, is taking part in training camp practices, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Witherspoon signed with the Rams in June after being cut by the Steelers in May. He played in just four games last season but managed to post 20 tackles, two pass deflections and an interception. The 2017 third-round pick will be competing for a depth role in the Los Angeles secondary, though Rodrigue noted that Witherspoon's length and size compared to the other cornerbacks was noticeable.

Witherspoon (hamstring) signed with the Rams on Thursday, Jordan Schultz of TheScore.com reports.
Witherspoon was released by the Steelers in May after an injury-shortened 2022 campaign saw him only appear in four contests. The 28-year-old is expected to be ready during training camp, where he'll likely be competing for a depth role in the Los Angeles secondary.
The Steelers informed Witherspoon (hamstring) on Wednesday that he will be released, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Witherspoon appeared in four games with Pittsburgh in 2022, recording 20 tackles, two pass deflections and an interception prior to missing the final nine contests of the season with a hamstring injury. The 28-year-old will now look for another opportunity elsewhere, but his days as a starting option in the secondary are likely behind him.
