After sustaining a high-ankle sprain last week, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has sat out practice the past two days and is a game-time decision for Sunday at Dallas. If he can’t go, it will be A.J. Feeley taking the snaps for St. Louis, but unless you are hurting in the worst way for a quarterback, he’s best left on the waiver wire. The bigger issue is what happens to newly-acquired receiver Brandon Lloyd.
The hope had been that Lloyd would provide a boost for Bradford and the rest of the flagging Rams offense. That hope may be on hold for another week or two as the team’s franchise quarterback recovers. Expect Dallas to load the box against Steven Jackson and force the Rams to beat them through the air. Likewise, the rest of St. Louis’ receivers are big red flags against a Dallas defense that will likely be on the attack. They were a risky play even if Bradford was healthy. If he’s hobbled or out, avoid any Rams altogether.
