St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is expected to start this Sunday in Dallas, despite suffering a high ankle sprain last week against the Packersreports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Bradford's injury is on his left ankle, not his right one, which is the one he plants with to throw. If Bradford does start, the next question is how this will impact his play. 

More than likely it means more work in the pocket for Bradford. Quick throws and sharp routes from his receivers will be essential if he's going to have any chance at survival. It likely means fewer roll outs, as his mobility will surely be limited with that kind of injury. 

Yesterday, it sounded as though Bradford would not play this week. This, however, is a big game for the kid from Oklahoma. Thousands of Sooner fans will be on hand in Jerry World to see Bradford play. He also has a new, bona fide receiver to throw to this week. He might even have fellow Sooner alumnus Mark Clayton on the field with him. 

I love the kid's toughness. He may not be having the best season, and it would easy just to stay on the sidelines this week. I just hope it doesn't backfire. 

Keep an eye on reports out of Rams Park this week.
