Sam Bradford feeling better, but still not ready to go

Three days after Rams quarterback Sam Bradford missed a game for the first time in his NFL career, he said his injured ankle is feeling better. But he was also held out of practice once again amid increasing talk that he’ll have to miss his second consecutive game.

It did feel much better today than when we put it in the cast on Saturday,” Bradford told the Belleville News-Democrat on Wednesday. “The pain and soreness that I woke up with on Saturday is gone.”

However, just because Bradford is feeling better doesn’t mean he’s ready to get on the field. Bradford sat out Wednesday’s practice and was in a protective boot, and it’s looking more likely that A.J. Feeley will start against the Saints on Sunday.

Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo isn’t going to rush his franchise quarterback back on the field.

“We’re not going to put weight on it or do any bouncing around until it feels right,” Spagnuolo said.

And at the moment, Bradford’s ankle — like so much going on with the Rams — still doesn’t feel right.

  1. What a wreck this team is, and not only the players. Front office and coaching has to be one of the worst if not the worst in the NFL. Need the owner to step up and make some wholesale changes to save this franchise.

    _____________________________________Ummmm didn’t we say that about the last regime, too? Heads do need to role but, eventually, the cure is going to become worse than the disease.

  3. Bradford has an injury his Senior year and his second year and the pros and he’s not injury prone? Or does the media just hate the Lions (unless they’re undefeated)

  4. Hope he gets back to full health soon…even though their season is lost, I want to see how well brandon lloyd works with bradford
