Bradford good to go vs. Jints
Sam Bradford suffered a bruised right index finger in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, but the Rams' second-year quarterback will be in the lineup when St. Louis visits the Giants next Monday night at MetLife Stadium.
Bradford participated in practice today and made all of his throws. He'd worn a special glove on his hand that promoted healing.
"Everyone says I look like Michael Jackson," joked earlier today, per the Associated Press. "I'm not really sure what it does. They say it works and obviously my hand feels better, so I trust them."
Bradford reported some soreness, but said the finger felt "10 times better" than it did on Monday, the day after the Rams' season-opening 31-13 loss. Bradford was originally not supposed to throw until Thursday at the earliest.
"I wouldn't have come out of the game if it wasn't serious," Bradford said. "I couldn't feel it, I couldn't move it, I really was concerned."
Receiver Mike Sims-Walker said he "couldn't tell a bit" that Bradford had been injured on Sunday. "He looked great to me."
Bradford was one of only three quarterbacks who took every snap last year, but backup A.J. Feeley came on in relief for him on Sunday.
"[Bradford] is kind of over the hump with some things, it looks like he's going to be OK," coach Steve Spagnuolo said. "I think it would be the understatement of the year to say it's a relief."
