Sam Bradford joins Rams' injury list

By Mike Sando

A tough regular-season opener is becoming a disastrous one for the St. Louis Rams.

Quarterback Sam Bradford, under siege while falling behind 31-13 against Philadelphia through three-plus quarters, has left for the locker room, marking the first time he has missed a regular-season snap.

Bradford was looking at his right hand as he walked to the locker room. The team said he was undergoing X-rays on a finger on his right hand, and his return was questionable. By the time Bradford left the game, the Rams had already lost tackle Jason Smith (ankle), running back Steven Jackson, receiver Danny Amendola and cornerback Ron Bartell.

Amendola suffered a dislocated left elbow and will not return. Bartell suffered a stinger. Safety Quintin Mikell left the game after suffering cramps.
