The St. Louis Rams are off to a disappointing 0-3 start and they now have a new obstacle to deal with as they search for their first win of the year.
Quarterback Sam Bradford suffered an injury to his toe in Sunday’s 37-7 loss to the Ravens. He had x-rays, which revealed no broken bones and coach Steve Spagnuolo called it a sprain in his meeting with the media on Monday.
“Right now we hope it’s not a big deal,” Spagnuolo said via Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Bradford had a miserable day on Sunday, completing 16-of-32 passes for 166 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also lost a fumble on a sack for the third straight week and saw it returned for a touchdown for the third straight week. After three weeks, we haven’t seen much improvement from the Rams offense with Josh McDaniels at the controls, although the injury to Steven Jackson and a tough schedule have likely played a role.
The schedule isn’t getting much easier. The Rams have home dates with the Redskins and Saints sandwiched around trips to Green Bay and Dallas over the next four weeks. The schedule gets much easier at that point, the question is whether or not that will be too late if the offense doesn’t get things going sooner rather than later.
