Sam Bradford Status: Not Looking Good For Rams QB

The St. Louis Rams may very well face life without Sam Bradford this week against the Dallas Cowboys. The Rams' quarterback did not practice again yesterday, missing an entire week of practice. He did test the ankle and some new braces yesterday. His status for the game is up in the air, but if I had to lay a bet on it, I'd say A.J. Feeley will be starting in Dallas. 

Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd joined the team this week, coming over in a swap from the Denver Broncos. Because of his ankle, Bradford took no reps with Lloyd in practice. It's not exactly gray smoke coming out of the roof in Earth City, but no time with his new receiver wouldn't seem to be very advantageous for Bradford. 

If Bradford can't play, third quarterback Tom Bradstater will have to be activated from the practice squad no later than 3 p.m. today. The possibility of Bradford playing is at least viable enough for the Rams to push that decision right down to the wire. Not that it matters a whole lot; practice squaders can at least practice. 

Adam Schefter had a pretty big scoop on Bradford once upon a time, reporting in February 2010 that the Rams would take him with the first pick in that year's draft. On Monday, he reported  that Bradford would play this week against Dallas. If I had to guess, I'd say Schefter's wrong on this one.
