Default Brandstater activated from Rams P squad

Rams activate Brandstater; Bradford’s status shaky

In the clearest sign yet that Sam Bradford has an uphill battle to play in Sunday’s game, the Rams activated quarterback Tom Brandstater from the practice squad on Saturday.

The team released linebacker Ben Leber to make room.

Bradford barely practiced this week after aggravating his ankle sprain in last week’s loss to the Cardinals. Bradford missed practice Thursday and was “very limited” in practice on Friday according to coach Steve Spagnuolo.

It’s starting to look like A.J. Feeley will start in a tough matchup Sunday in San Francisco. Feeley has started two games this year, including the Rams’ upset win over the Saints. (Although Feeley didn’t play great that day.)

If Bradford is out, Brandstater would back Feeley up. The 49ers are two touchdown favorites at this point and that number could be going up.

Then again, it’s not like the Rams passing offense can get a lot worse than they have been over the last month.

I've always kind of liked Brandstater, I think given the right situation he could have some success.

Why'd KC waste all that cash picking up Orton when they could have just signed Brandstater off STL's P-Squad? Likewise, why'd we ever start Orton when was Brandstater around? [/Orton bash]

Thanks - be sure to let us know when any other former Bronco scrubs who never got to play and are on another teams practice squad get moved to the 53man roster.

"McCheat is an offensive genius!"

Just look at those stats, wins, and all the moves he's made!

Bump - Brandstater to start

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...r-brandstater/

Quote:
Tom Brandstater has been with five NFL teams since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2009 draft by the Denver Broncos. (It wasn’t so long ago Brandstater was briefly ahead of Tim Tebow on the depth chart.)

Brandstater has never made a throw in an NFL game, but it sure looks like he’s going to make his first NFL start on Monday Night Football. Brandstater took all the first team snaps at Rams practice Thursday.

I am surprised the Rams did not make us a 1st round pick offer for Lonnie (Bob) Paxton. He is the cog that makes mCd's machine sorta work.

You are not going Wally Pipp on us, are you? Or for those that don't get the reference, Drew Bledsoe on us, are you?

Not with that team or McD as their offensive coordinator.

Guess I was right to doubt Bradford's durability in the NFL. Dude's just straight up fragile.

Good luck Brandstater. Still don't get why we replaced you with Adam Weber...

We kept trying to bring in a #4 quarterback that Tebow could beat out to secure the #3 spot.
