The St. Louis Rams will most likely be without quarterback Sam Bradford for the fourth time this season. Bradford missed practice again on Friday, watching from the sidelines in a walking boot, according to the team. He is officially listed as doubtful, but head coach Steve Spagnuolo sounded pessimistic about his quarterback playing this week.
That puts Kellen Clemens on track to start this week. It would be his first start since 2009. Clemens took all the reps with the starters in Bradford's place. A.J. Feeley is still out.
It's fair to wonder whether or not Bradford will resume playing again this season, with just three games left to play. Many feel that he should probably sit for the Rams last three games, when they face the Bengals, Steelers and 49ers.
In happier news, Chris Long returned to practice. His ankle is still bothering him, but he will play this week. Long is listed as questionable along with Fred Robbins, James Hall, Justin King and Quinn Porter.
