49ers Vs. Rams: Sam Bradford, Chris Long Miss Thursday Practice

The St. Louis Rams wrapped up their Thursday practice, and in an interesting twist, QB Sam Bradford reportedly sat out practice. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo originally said Bradford took part in half the first team snaps, but after practice he was listed as a did not participate. Chris Long was also a DNP for practice.

Both players were limited participants on Wednesday, so this would seemingly represent a downgrade for them as they both work back from nagging ankle issues. Long said he was definitely going to play on Sunday, but we haven't heard the same from Bradford.

A.J. Feeley took the first team reps on Thursday and would get the start if Bradford is unable to go. Feeley has made two starts this season, one in a loss against Dallas and one in a win against New Orleans. Steven Jackson keyed the victory over New Orleans, but Feeley put together a decent game. He was 20/37 for 175 yards and a touchdown. He did lose a fumble, though.

The Rams passing attack has improved somewhat thanks to the addition of Brandon Lloyd, but it has still struggled with consistency. The Rams offensive line ranks in the bottom third of the league in pass protection and will hopefully be an area where the 49ers defense can key in on Sunday.
