Sam Bradford Injury: Rams QB Likely To Sit This Week

The status of St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford for today's game is still unknown. However, the odds for Bradford making the start today do not appear favorable based on the Rams' decision to promote practice squad quarterback Tom Brandstater to the active roster at the last minute on Saturday. Bradford re-aggravated the high ankle sprain that forced out for two weeks in October in a Week 12 loss to the Cardinals.

Surprisingly enough, Bradford did not hurt his ankle on one of the hits he took. Bradford tweaked it on rollout, simple as that. A fitting summation of the Rams season to date.

If Bradford can't go today, A.J. Feeley would get the start. The Rams beat the New Orleans Saints with Feeley at quarterback in October. If embattled offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels adjusts his approach to the kind of quick passes and run-first mentality, the Rams might minimize the impact of their makeshift offensive line. Danario Alexander returns this week, but with Feeley's limited range, the downfield game will be marginalized.

Another injury to keep your eye on is Chris Long. He missed practice last week with an ankle injury as well. Long already has a new career-high sack total, and would be looking to improve upon that this week.

Already thought to be a tough matchup for the Rams porous run defense, if defensive tackle Justin Bannan can't play today, the yardage could come in chunks, big chunks for Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter.

Safety Darian Stewart is out today as well with a concussion.
