I would imagine that most of you reading this from St. Louis had a long weekend with the Cardinals winning the World Series and all, so you can sympathize with me being unable to post last night while I spent the night downtown celebrating with the rest of the city. In my absence, the Rams announced that quarterback Sam Bradford will miss Sunday’s game against the Saints as he continues to recover from his ankle injury. I can’t say I’m overly shocked, but it is disappointing. I guess there’s no reason to rush him back before he’s ready with the season pretty much a lost cause already, but still we enjoy seeing Bradford when we show up at the Dome.
As far as the rest of the injury front goes, Mark Clayton won’t be making his debut as he continues to deal with Achilles soreness, but it looks like Marquis Johnson will be active from what Spags said on Friday. It looks like the team will be without Danario Alexander as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury. He didn’t practice all week and he’s expected to be out along with LB Brady Poppinga, who also missed practice all week with his calf ailment. Obviously it’s never good when starters have to miss with injury, but it really hurts when it’s a guy like DX who has had so many injury issues already. They good news is that it’s not his knee, so hopefully he will be able to bounce back.
