This nightmare season in St. Louis received a rare injection of good news on Monday when the team acquired Brandon Lloyd.
And then it got right back to the regularly scheduled unending stream of depressing news.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo announced Monday that Sam Bradford suffered a high left ankle sprain against the Packers. Bradford finished the game out, but clearly he was playing hurt.
Spagnuolo expressed concern with Bradford’s status, saying that backup A.J. Feeley would surely get a lot of reps in practice this week. High ankle sprains are often multiple week injuries, but Spagnuolo wasn’t about to give away Bradford’s playing status yet.
The Rams are coming off another dispiriting loss, but Bradford might have played his best game of the season. His offensive line and receivers still let him down too much, but there were good moments to build off. The Rams actually gained more yards than the Packers on Sunday.
It’s been that kind season for Bradford and the Rams. The quarterback’s best day of the year came in a 24-3 loss.
