Sam Bradford, Rodger Saffold On The Injury Report

The St. Louis Rams season could be headed from bad to worse following a 24-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers today. Several key players landed on the injury list, including starting quarterback Sam Bradford. One of the injuries is potentially serious, and could have a big impact for an 0-5 team still desperately seeking its first win of the season. 

Sam Bradford sprained his left ankle on the last play of the game, which resulted in his third sack of the game and 21st sack of the season. Fortunately for the Rams, Bradford's x-rays were negative, and he says that he will be fine. However, this is the third minor injury for Bradford this season, after a finger bruise and a thigh bruise in the first four games. The pass protection was improved today, but the rate at which he's being sacked is alarming. 

Speaking of pass protection, left tackle and penalty machine Rodger Saffold suffered a sprained his left ankle, and it could be a high ankle sprain. High ankle sprains can keep players out for weeks, typically four weeks at a time. Saffold had a terrible day because of his penalties, but he did do better in pass protection after getting schooled by Jim Haslett's Redskins defense. 

Backup running back Cadillac Williams suffered a thigh injury in the second half of the game.
