St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford increased his workload in practice today. Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo said after practice that Bradford did most of the work with the first team today, a bigger workload than he had last week prior to making the start against Arizona. He was still limited in his scope of work as the Rams intentionally try to keep the wear and tear off ahead of Sunday's game, when he is expected to start.
Running back Steven Jackson carried a lighter workload in practice today too. He is dealing with a slight foot injury that is not expected to have an impact on his game. A lighter practice workload is the norm for Jackson as the season goes on and the team makes an effort to keep him fresh, so there really is nothing to worry about here.
It's a good thing, because the Rams will be counting on Jackson again this week. Browns safety T.J. Ward is out. Ward has been the league's best run support safeties according to Pro Football Focus.
Defensive tackle Darell Scott has been cleared for contact, and with Gary Gibson returning to action, the Rams should have all four defensive tackles available.
Lance Kendricks will be out this week, dealing with a strained foot he suffered against the Cardinals last week. Danario Alexander will be out again, but with Mark Clayton returning, he probably wouldn't have seen much action anyway.
Linebackers Josh Hull and Brian Kehl were limited in practice, and are both listed as questionable.
