No, they had to release him or sign him to the active roster prior to the game. They probably weren't ready to sign a RB they tried out and he has very little time left of PS eligibility. I am not sure if adding him to the roster would have burnt it all up or not. So they take a risk releasing him but if a team was going to take him they would have tried to snag him of the PS already.
They probably still see potential in him but do not think he is ready for full time participation on the squad and they will continue to keep kicking tires on retread RB's.
