Rams QB Bradford hopeful to play Monday vs. Seahawks

Quarterback Sam Bradford was back on the practice field Saturday for the St. Louis Rams in preparing the Rams for their game against the Seahawks on Monday in Seattle.

Bradford, hampered by a high left ankle sprain, did not practice at all this week and missed last week's game at San Francisco. He sustained the ankle injury Oct. 16 at Green Bay and missed two games.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo said he's not ready to name him the starter. Bradford officially was listed as questionable for Monday's game on the team's injury report.

"The test here, you know, when I talk with (trainer) Reggie (Scott) is see how it feels tomorrow," Spagnuolo said. "Now, we are treading lightly and going safe. I will tell you this, if you could have seen the look on his eye when I told him he wasn't going to play last week, you know, that's hard to do.

"You know him. We'll see and be smart about it."

Bradford took less than half of the practice snaps, splitting time with Kellen Clemens, who was signed Thursday after he was cut Wednesday by Houston.

Clemens split duties Friday with No. 3 quarterback Tom Brandstater, who did not take any reps with the first team Saturday. Brandstater, who is in his second year out of Fresno State, has not played in an NFL game.

No. 2 quarterback A. J. Feeley is out with a fractured right thumb, which he hurt against San Francisco.

NOTES: KR Quinn Porter (abdomen) is out Monday as is Feeley. ... FB Britt Miller (knee) did not practice Saturday. ... DE Chris Long (ankle) and DT Fred Robbins (back) were limited Saturday and are questionable for Monday's game. ... TE Lance Kendricks did not practice Saturday and was out of town for personal reasons, Spagnuolo said. He will play Monday.
