Sam Bradford Injury Update: QB Misses Wednesday Practice, Doubtful For Week 8

It's still not entirely clear whether St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford will be available for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, but it's becoming less likely each day. Bradford is still battling the high ankle injury that he suffered a couple weeks ago, and he missed practice on Wednesday while recovering from the injury.

On Monday, Bradford's status was described as questionable by Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo, , but it appears that we can downgrade his status to doubtful at this point given the lack of progress on his ankle. Bradford missed last Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys due the injury, and while A.J. Feeley was competent in his place, it's pretty clear that the Rams miss their star player.

Bradford's status for Sunday will presumably be a last-minute decision as the team hopes for an unexpectedly quick recovery, but it seems likely that Feeley will be behind center for the Rams on Sunday. This season has quickly become a lost cause for St. Louis, but getting Bradford back and healthy is paramount for the team's long-term success.
