ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI - DECEMBER 18: Quarterback Kellen Clemens #10 of the St. Louis Rams watches from the sidelines in the second half of the game against the Cincinnati Bengals on December 18, 2011 at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Missouri.

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford did not practice on Monday. Once again, he watched from the sidelines in walking boot, dealing with the high ankle sprain that has dogged him all season. No decision has been made yet, but the Rams will likely shut him down for the season, according to Jim Thomas.
Thomas' report echoes a report from Adam Schefter over the weekend, and only seems logical at this point.
Some more breakfast links for your Tuesday.
Rams quarterback still trying to learn names of all his teammates - Quarterback Kellen Clemens began his press conference after the St. Louis Rams' 20-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday by introducing himself. Clemens will finish out the season as the Rams quarterback.
Rams offense is historically impotent - The Rams offense is poised to reach new lows. If they don't score at least 34 points in their next two games, they'll be only the 15th team to score fewer than 200 points in a 16-game schedule.
Roethlisberger, offense are breaking down - Watching Ben Roethlisberger try to play through his ankle injury reminded me of watching Sam Bradford try to play through his against Seattle. Yes, there are numerous other differences between the Rams and the Steelers, but that was a good reminder of just how much Bradford's injury has impacted his season.
