The St. Louis Rams held out some optimism that quarterback Sam Bradford would be able to play this week. For the first time this season, a little optimism might be warranted. Bradford did some limited work in practice today, according to JIm Thomas. It was the first time all week that Bradford has practiced.
Whether or not Bradford will be able to play in the Rams' Monday night game against the Seahawks remains to be seen. This is a good sign. Thomas also notes that Bradford "moves around pretty well" in practice today. It's the first indication all week that Bradford's high ankle sprain has heeled enough for him to play.
If he can't play, either Tom Brandstater or Kellen Clemens will get the start. The Rams' regular backup quarterback, A.J. Feeley, did not practice because of a broken thumb, and he will not play this week.
Chris Long and Fred Robbins also practiced on a limited basis today, the first time this week for both of them.
