Feeley held out, Bradford likely to start

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A.J. Feeley is not practicing with the St. Louis Rams, increasing the likelihood that No. 1 draft pick Sam Bradford will start at quarterback this week.

Feeley has undergone an MRI exam for a thumb injury and also hurt his elbow in the first quarter Saturday at Cleveland. He was with other injured players on a side field during Monday's practice, with a protective covering on his right hand.

The Rams have only two practices to prepare for Thursday night's game at New England.
