It appears as if the Dallas Cowboys will not have to deal with the St. Louis Ram’s starting quarterback and last year’s offensive rookie of the year under center tomorrow. QB Sam Bradford has been officially ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. Bradford injured his ankle during last week’s loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Bradford’s injury was later diagnosed as a high left ankle sprain and the 2nd year player didn’t practice all week. In his place will be 10 year veteran A.J. Feeley. Prior to St. Louis, Feeley played for both the Miami Dolphins and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Feeley has faced the Cowboys before but only on one prior occasion. Just to give you an idea of how long ago that was: Dave Campo was the Cowboy’s Head Coach. Chad Hutchison was his quarterback. And Emmitt Smith was still on the team. Ouch!
But on December 21, 2002, Feeley did manage to lead the Eagles to a blow out victory over the Boys, 27-3. Feeley went 19 of 33 passes for 253 yards, one touchdown and one interception. But certainly a lot has changed in nine years.
