Sam Bradford has missed the St. Louis Rams' last two games with a high ankle sprain. This week marked the first time since the injury that Bradford has participated in practice, as he took about half of the snaps this week.
Earlier today on the FOX pregame show, Jay Glazer reported that Bradford said he would play. Of course, the ultimate decision is up to the team doctors and head coach Steve Spagnuolo, but according to Glazer, it looks like Bradford thinks he can give it a go against the Arizona Cardinals.
Then the Rams made it official via Twitter, announcing Bradford will start today.
Lloyd's first game with the Rams was also the first game Bradford missed.
With the Rams picking up their first win of the season last weekend against the Saints, the Rams now have a chance to begin a winning streak. The Rams travel to Arizona in Week 9, travel to Cleveland in Week 10, host Seattle in Week 11 and host Arizona in Week 12.
With a healthy Bradford, it would be very reasonable to expect the Rams to win all four of these games. If they would pull off that kind of winning streak, the Rams would be 5-6, and with two games remaining against the NFC West-leading San Francisco 49ers, the Rams would at least control their own fate in the NFC West.
