Bradford does not practice again for Rams
Bradford has a high sprain in his left ankle and has been wearing a protective boot all week. He has not practiced on the field since he was injured last Sunday against Green Bay.
“Obviously he didn’t come out here and practice so we didn’t think he was healthy enough to do that,” Spagnuolo said. “We’ll take it one day at a time and we’ll see where we’re at on Sunday.”
“Sam, he’s a competitor. He certainly wants to try to make this happen,” he said. “There are a lot of segments to it that we have to figure out.”
Feeley began his NFL career in 2001 but he has not started a game since 2007. He is 7-8 as a starter in the league.
From 2008 through 2010, Feeley did not attempt a pass. This year, when Bradford sustained a finger injury in the opener against Philadelphia, Feeley relieved him in the fourth quarter and attempted five passes. He completed one, for 21 yards.
“He’s taken all the reps to this point and I think he’s done a nice job,” Spagnuolo said. “I thought we were pretty smooth out there today, which is supposed to happen on Friday.”
“He knows the offense. He knows the game plan,” Jackson said. “He’s going to need our help, all 10 (other) guys on the field, to help execute the play. But he’s a veteran that we know if he gets in trouble, he knows how to get us out of trouble. And if we need to lean heavily on the run game, I’m prepared to do so as well.”
Feeley has been preparing this week as a starter and said that’s the only way he should be thinking.
“I think you have to. As a backup quarterback, that’s the nature of the game where you have to go into the game, even when you’re not getting reps, as you’re going to be the guy because in the flash of a moment, one play, you can go in and play,” Feeley said. “My mindset doesn’t change. Maybe the sense of urgency does and the fact that I’m getting reps out here and the likelihood of me playing is probably a little stronger than it was.”
He acknowledged he is getting acclimated with the offense under new coordinator Josh McDaniels that has so far scored an NFL-low 49 points. Since he doesn’t work with it week in and week out, that’s they way it is.
