Bradford out, Feeley in for Rams

A.J. Hawk,  Sam Bradford AP

Sam Bradford will miss a game for the first time in his NFL career on Sunday.

Bradford, the Rams quarterback who started all 16 games as a rookie and had started all five games so far this year, has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Cowboys, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports. A.J. Feeley will start in Bradford’s place.

Bradford suffered a high ankle sprain last week against the Packers, but he was able to tough it out and finish the game, and early this week the Rams were optimistic that he could go. But as the week went on, Bradford continued to miss practice, and now he’s been ruled out.

In a year when virtually nothing has gone right for the Rams, we can now add Bradford’s injury to the list. This season has been a mess in St. Louis.

    Big opportunity for Feeley to put something good on tape.

    Turned out to be a fortuitous mistake by the Rams, who signed A.J. with the intent of improving their place kicking game.

    High ankle sprain usually means a problem for weeks.
    This team has really hit bottom.
    Too bad they don’t play the Vikings this year, that could have been game of the week.
    Wonder how Lloyd is feeling now.

    -crosses fingers-

    Here’s to hoping Mcdaniels can make some magic out of Feeley, like he did Orton and Cassel…

    Feeley didn’t look too bad in pre-season either,atleast,throwing the ball

    Addition by subtraction…..Not that Bradford isn’t going to eventually be a very good to great QB. But another loss puts the Lambs a step closer to the 1st pick in the draft. They could get a number of high picks back trading the rights to draft A. Luck…..

    Look up the definition for “cannon fodder” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannon_fodder). This is Feeley against Ware and the ‘Boys. If Feeley can still stand after this game, he should start the rest of the season or until the O-line, including the tight ends can protect a quarterback. How about three-tight end sets and Jackson/Williams inside the tackles 40 times?

    There is a drug problem in the league right now, the defending world champions are the root of the problem. Here is a direct quote from one Mike McCarthy:

    “Josh is a very good player but he will have a tendency once in a while to get high,” McCarthy said. “That’s when he gets himself in trouble

    They are all high in Green Bay

    That’s cleaver and hilarious.

    Big props!

    Even though you’re taking a back hand swipe at my team.

    Funny how all these 9er fans have came out of the woodworks this season.

    Where have y’all been the past decade? Hiding under a rock?

    Are Vince Ferragamo and Ray Malavasi available?

  14. haanster says: Oct 22, 2011 3:01 PM

    He was hurt on the Rams last offensive play of the game. As much as I like Bradford, I don’t think he deserves credit for being ‘able to tough it out and finish the game’ since he was hurt on, you know, his last play of the game.

    Two last place teams battling….yawn.

  16. usher716 says: Oct 22, 2011 4:22 PM

    Think the Rams would keep Luck and trade Bradford?

    chinadoll bradford, this guy is always hurt, just like in college

  19. briank1ne says: Oct 22, 2011 6:22 PM

    Kinda feel bad for bradford and the rams. Such high hopes for this season. Supposed to win the weak nfc west. But it only turns out that the rams are the worst in the worst division. Last yr it was the same letdown for the niners. And look at those guys now. I think they are one of the best teams in the league. Cant wait till the rams meet the niners again..lol 12-4 signing out. Niners for life.

    As a Giants fan, I usually reserve my hatred for the Eagles, Cowboys, and Redskins fans. But, I must say, 49ers fans are skyrocketing up my Hate List.
    I liked it a lot more when 49ers fans stayed hidden because their team stunk so bad.

    Yea because the raiders have been awesome the last 7 years..hate to say it but just sayin.

  23. laeaglefan says: Oct 23, 2011 1:51 AM

    A.J. Feeley should retire NOW, while he still has his health. If he has to play a whole game, he may be ready for disability payments for the rest of his life afterward.

  24. laeaglefan says: Oct 23, 2011 1:52 AM

    Can the Rams trade with the Vikings to get Donovan McNabb by tomorrow?

    Dude, Oakland has been horrible in the past ten years, too.
