St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson had no setbacks to injured quad in this week's game against the Baltimore Ravens. At least someone didn't have any setbacks. Rams QB Sam Bradford suffered a toe injury that should have everyone a little concerned, even though it is not expected to be serious. 

Bradford sprained his toe against the Ravens yesterday. The injury will not keep him out of action, but it will require ongoing treatment throughout the week. Bradford's toe might be the least of his worries given the level of protection his offensive line has given him this season. Bradford has been sacked 12 times through three games this season, the third most in the league. 

Questions about the offensive line were few and far between in Spagnuolo's press conference today. Trying to make it out through the incredibly choppy streaming video offered by the Rams (seriously, can we not invest a little $ in a better online video system) Spagnuolo discussed a little about the confidence of the group. He didn't really have to dance around the issue because nobody was asking about it. 

Too bad. They should have read Bernie Miklasz in the Post-Dispatch online today. Here's how Miklasz described the Rams offensive line:

The Rams offensive line, in my opinion, represents the most significant waste of money on athletic talent in the history of St. Louis sports.

Needless to say, nobody asked Spagnuolo about the Rams struggles on offense, not that they would have gotten many answers.
