In 2013 draft, Rams must save Sam Bradford

The St. Louis Rams will have two first-round picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, which makes it hard to justify not selecting an offensive lineman.


Sam Bradford Injury Update: St. Louis Rams QB Suffers Setback, Misses Practice

According to the St. Louis Rams official twitter account, the Rams QB Sam Bradford missed today's practice after re-aggravating his ankle injury:

The Rams (2-9) played without Bradford in Week 7 and Week 8 after he suffered a high ankle sprain against the Green Bay Packers in Week 6.

Bradford has thrown for 1,971 yards this year with a 72.3 quarterback rating -- a not-impressive array of stats, but given the 68.3 QB rating of backup A.J. Feeley, the Rams likely prefer having the Bradford injury go away. If Bradford indeed cannot go on Sunday, the Rams will again be forced to start the 34-year-old Feeley for the 18th time in his NFL career.

Danario Alexander Injury: Alexander Expected To Practice, Maybe Play This Week, For Once

In a sense, given this team's propensity for it, the simple fact that the St. Louis Rams' most fragile player hasn't yet appeared on the injured reserve is a major victory. But even with the knee apparently healthy, the Danario Alexander injury train rolls on—this week, it looks like the former Mizzou star will practice on his gimpy hamstring, with the goal of making his return Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Alexander hasn't played since October 23, when he caught two passes for nine yards in Dallas. 

For Alexander it will be a chance to end what was nearly a breakout season on a less frustrating note. Through the Rams' first five games Alexander was perhaps Sam Bradford's most dangerous target, catching three balls for 122 yards and a long touchdown in Week 2's Monday Night Football loss to the New York Giants and catching six for 91 yards in the Rams' frustratingly barren loss to  the Green Bay Packers

But his legs couldn't handle the beating, and ever since his quiet performance in Dallas he's been inactive. Short of Brandon Lloyd he remains the Rams' most dangerous wide receiver, but if they can't expect him to play on a regular basis he might not be long for the NFL, even with all that potential still apparent. 


Sam Bradford Injury: Bradford Aggravates High Ankle Sprain, Expected To Practice

Sam Bradford aggravated his high ankle sprain Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, bringing back into the spotlight an injury that cost him two games in October, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that he isn’t expected to miss any practice, let alone playing time, after this latest recurrence.

Bradford, who played every snap in 2010, has given way on four occasions to A.J. Feeley this season. Feeley, who prior to this year hadn’t appeared in a regular-season game since 2007, has gone 41-for-75 for 392 yards, a touchdown, and an interception this year.

Bradford, in his disappointing 2011, has actually topped last year’s numbers on a per-attempt basis—he’s averaging 6.0 yards per attempt in 2011, identical to last year’s mark, and 5.7 yards per attempt adjusted for his extremely low touchdown and interception rates, up from last year’s 5.4. But I don’t think Josh McDaniels will be including this next to those Kyle Orton seasons on his résumé, if I had to guess.
