The St. Louis Rams got some more grim injury news today. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo revealed in his Monday presser that QB Sam Bradford has a high-ankle sprain. The question now being asked is how long Bradford will be out with this injury.

Curiously, Spagnuolo described Bradford's injury as day-to-day, an unusual way to describe a high ankle sprain. He is wearing a boot today at Rams Park, and backup QB A.J. Feeley will take reps with the first team this week. With the next two games against the Cowboys and the Saints, Bradford might not be able to make a difference since he can't play cornerback. However, if Bradford is still out of action for the two games after that, Arizona and Cleveland, it hurts the Rams' chances in their two most winnable games of the season so far. 

With Rams down 24-3 against the Packers, I do wonder why Bradford wasn't taken out of the game. Of course, it's Bradford's team too, and he isn't the type that would be willing to sit on the sidelines. It would seem like kind of a prima donna move. 

This news comes on the same day the Rams made a trade for wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, giving their offense a much needed upgrade at the skill positions.
