Sam Bradford looks like a go for the St. Louis Rams in tonight's Monday Night Football game against the Seahawks.

The St. Louis Rams will likely have starting quarterback Sam Bradford on the field for tonight's game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. Jim Thomas of the Post-Dispatch said on 101 ESPN radio in St. Louis this morning that Bradford was likely to play tonight. He also said that Kellen Clemens would be the backup, meaning if Bradford can't go at the last minute, Clemens would get the start.

Bradford missed last week's game after re-aggravating his high ankle sprain. He sat out practice all week until Saturday.

Obviously Bradford gives the Rams their best chance of winning. However, the offensive line is a shambles, stuffed with second- and third-string players. They were manhandled by Seattle's defensive front in their last meeting, and figure to be again in enemy territory. That doesn't bode well for Bradford. If he does play, hopefully the Rams will keep him on a short leash, taking extra caution. Running the ball would be a wise idea as well.

Stay tuned.
