Sam Bradford Injury: Tom Brandstater Takes QB Reps At Practice

New, comments

Today's news does not bode well for the St. Louis Rams' situation at quarterback. Sam Bradford did not practice today. His backup, A.J. Feeley, also was out this afternoon, and third quarterback Tom Bradstater took all the reps with the team. More and more, it looks as though Brandstater could be the man when the Rams play the Seahawks Monday night in Seattle.

According to Howard Balzer of 101 ESPN, Feeley's thump is bound up and he cannot grip the ball. That could very well mean Feeley is out this week. As for Bradford, he is still listed as day-to-day. With a Monday night game, the Rams have an extra day to get their regular starter ready, but his status still looks murky.

Another handful of roster moves happened today. Cornerback Chris Smith was signed to the active roster, and Nate Ness was released. Running back Chase Reynolds was added to the practice squad.

Fred Robbins, Chris Long and Quinn Porter did not practice today either. Long did not practice last week because his ankle; he's keeping some wear and tear off for game time this week. Robbins saw his snap count reduced last week, and Porter is dealing with an oblique strain.

The Rams are taking a wait and see approach with Jacob Bell. With a grade 2 MCL sprain, he could be back in two weeks...or four.

Darian Stewart was back at practice today, cleared for contact after missing last week with concussion symptoms. Backup offensive tackle Mark LeVoir was also back in action today, and the Rams will likely put him on the left side and move Adam Goldberg back to the right.
