Sam Bradford Injury: Rams "Optimistic" That Bradford Can Play

New, comments

The St. Louis Rams are still undecided on the status of quarterback Sam Bradford for today's 4:15 p.m. game in Arizona. He is officially a game-time decision. However, a report moments ago revealed that the team is "optimistic" that their quarterback can play. Muddying the waters is ESPN's Chris Mortensen:

After missing two games the Rams are optimistic that Sam Bradford will make the start today wearing a protective brace on his ankle

Like I said above, the Rams are not making a decision until Bradford tests the ankle prior to the game. When will we know something officially? I'd say in a couple hours, but who knows. 

If Bradford can play, the Rams offense should be better. Case in point, those two deep throws backup QB A.J. Feeley attempted to Brandon Lloyd last week. Bradford's arm and accuracy are much better than Feeley's, so if he can play, the passing game should benefit. Or will it? Bradford has struggled this season, can he instantly slip back in there and get his mojo back? We'll know soon enough.
