Sam Bradford Injury Status: Rams QB Out This Week

The St. Louis Rams will be without quarterback Sam Bradford for the second week in a row. Bradford is still dealing with the high ankle sprain he suffered in week 6. The Rams ruled him today. A.J. Feeley will start in his place. 

Unlike last week, the Rams did not even try to test Bradford's ankle. The quarterback is still wearing a walking boot and being kept off his feet. It's a far cry from the optimistic tone most injury reports carried following Bradford's injury, when some all but guaranteed that he would play last week against Dallas. Makes you wonder how serious the injury really is. For most players, high ankle sprains mean around four weeks out of action. Quarterbacks move less, which led some to think that Bradford's injury might be the same hindrance it is for other players. I guess not. 

Wide receiver Danario Alexander is also out this week. A boom or bust player, Alexander has a problematic 41 percent catch rate. Strongside linebacker Brady Poppinga is also most likely out this week.
