Just when it seemed like injury reports had subsided a little bit for the bruised and battered St. Louis Rams, today's practice report was notable for two players who did not participate because of injuries. As noted earlier, quarterback Sam Bradford missed today's practice, and so did defensive end Chris Long, who is also dealing with an ankle injury.

Long left less ambiguity about his status for this week's game. He told the media at Rams Park today that he plans to play. As for whether or not that jives with what the training staff says remains to be seen.

Justin Bannan was still out today, a concern for the Rams leaky run defense. Josh Hull and Mark LeVoir were also out today. Darian Stewart has still not been cleared for contact, more good news for the run defense, and that decision could come tomorrow.

Other injuries of note including punter Donnie Jones, who was limited because of an injury to his kicking leg, suffered while chasing Patrick Peterson on his 80-yard punt-return touchdown.

Danario Alexander was also practicing again today, a good sign for his availability this week. Of course, if Feeley is quarterbacking, the deep ball is much less of an option.

Also worth noting, quarterback Tom Brandstater is not on the roster, meaning Feeley is the Rams' only healthy quarterback right now.
