Sam Bradford Injury: Game Time Decision For Rams QB

New, comments

St. Louis Rams quarterback expanded his workload in practice today. He participated in team drills, but was still limited in his complete scope of work. According to the team, he will be a game time decision this week.

According to Howard Balzer of 101 ESPN, Bradford took reps with the first team. Keep an eye on Rams Park tomorrow, because they could know with more certainty on his status then. 

The Rams will not have Danario Alexander this week. He is still dealing with a hamstring injury. Brian Kehl is "very questionable" with an ankle sprain. Kehl had a really solid outing last week against the Saints, working mostly as the strongside linebacker. Brady Poppinga will be back this week. You can assume that he will resume his role on the strongside with Kehl out of action. Justin King will be back this week as well. 

The Rams handled the Saints passing attack last week. This week, the challenge is a little different. Obviously Arizona lacks the kind of offense that the Saints have, but they do have Larry Fitzgerald. Ron Bartell and Bradley Fletcher were both pretty effective against Fitzgerald last year, particularly Bartell, but those guys are both on the shelf for the rest of the year.
