Rams QB Sam Bradford ruled out

St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo ruled out quarterback Sam Bradford for a second consecutive game because of a high ankle sprain.

Bradford's backup A.J. Feeley will get the start for the 0-6 Rams Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

The 34-year-old Feeley got his first start since 2007 in a 34-7 loss at Dallas last week. He was 20 for 33 for 166 yards and an interception with no touchdowns against the Cowboys.

It was just the 16th career start in 11 seasons for Feeley, who also was a backup much of his senior year at Oregon behind Joey Harrington in 2000.

The Rams are the lowest-scoring team in the NFL, averaging just nine points, so they weren't that effective even with Bradford behind center. They've scored four touchdowns in 14 trips inside the 20 -- just one spot above the league cellar in that category.

Bradford passed for 299 yards at Green Bay, and the Rams totaled three points. He threw for 331 yards against the Giants but with just one touchdown.
