Sam Bradford Injury: Rams QB Not Optimistic About Playing In Week 17

Sam Bradford has already missed five games this season with a badly sprained ankle, and he's on the verge of missing a sixth. The St. Louis Rams starting quarterback is not expected to play against the San Fransisco 49ers in the team's Week 17 season finale, as he missed practice again on Wednesday. The Rams are currently 2-13, so they don't exactly have any incentive to rush their franchise QB back to the field and allow him to play in pain.

Bradford admitted that he wasn't completely healthy and that he's not where he wants to be physically at the moment.

"It's still now where I think our training staff would like it to be...This week was really the first time we had really done much and to be honest it didn't feel great in the little that we did do."

If the Rams lose to the 49ers and the Indianapolis Colts win on Sunday, the Rams would get the first overall pick in the NFL draft. That, of course, would force them into a very difficult decision regarding the pick and Bradford's future. Not that he isn't always rooting for his team to win, but Bradford will almost certainly want his team to do all that they can to avoid that dilemma this week.
