It looks like we won’t know who is starting under center against the Arizona Cardinals until before the game on Sunday, as the St. Louis Rams are calling Sam Bradford a game-time decision. Bradford took snaps with the offense Friday, but the team is waiting to see how his ankle reacts to the extra work. I’m not going to make any predictions on his status, but the chances are looking much better after he did work on Friday. If I had to guess, I’d say he gives it a go after listening to what he said earlier in the week, but if there’s a chance he isn’t ready then expect to see AJ Feeley out there.
On the rest of the injury front, Jason Smith, Darell Scott, Danario Alexander and Mark Clayton have been ruled out for the game. It looks like Brady Poppinga and Justin King will be active and will play, so that’s good news. Bryan Kehl was in a walking boot this week after hurting his ankle, so it’s not looking great for him. No real surprises on this list, as we knew the guys who are out were going to be out a few days ago. It’s nice to have Poppinga and King both back, if only for depth purposes. I like what Poppinga brings to this defense, so it’s good to have him back on the field. As far as King goes, I think we all know his deal. The secondary was fine without him last week, but it can never hurt to have more bodies at the position.
