ST. LOUIS -- Sam Bradford did not practice for the second straight day because of a nagging high left ankle sprain, but the St. Louis Rams quarterback is hopeful of playing Monday night at Seattle.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo said Thursday that Bradford could miss every practice and still play if he's healthy enough. Bradford said at this late stage of the season he's comfortable enough with the offense to do that.

Backup A.J. Feeley has already ruled himself out this week because of a fractured thumb on his throwing hand, so Tom Brandstater, who has never played in an NFL game, would go if Bradford can't.

Bradford missed last week's game and is wearing a small air cast. He said he hasn't thought about the possibility of going on injured reserve if the ankle continues to bother him.
