Sam Bradford ruled out against Cowboys Sunday

Earlier Saturday, we pointed out that Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant thinks his team is "unbeatable." We didn't necessarily agree with his statement, but he's likely to look accurate on Sunday, especially with the Rams now ruling out Sam Bradford for Week 7's game in Dallas.

Bradford's absence is official -- he's missing the game thanks to a high ankle sprain that he suffered in the loss to Green Bay during Week 6. And that means A.J. Feeley gets the nod under center for St. Louis.

"I’m definitely, I’m doing everything I can to play…whether we were playing in Dallas or in Alaska, I’m going to do everything I can to play every Sunday,” Bradford said Friday.

Indeed, it seemed as if Bradford would start as late as Thursday, but the injury obviously didn't warrant putting the face of their franchise at future risk by rolling him out Sunday.

Plus, it probably doesn't matter -- Bryant's statements about the Cowboys are correct in this case, Bradford or not. So for the Rams to hope and make anything out of this season going forward, they're better off allowing Bradford to get healthy and hoping the other NFC West teams stumble as their schedule gets easier.
