Cardinals QB Sam Bradford admitted that’s been “challenging” being relegated to the team’s No. 3 quarterback.
“It is challenging,” Bradford said, via AzCardinals.com. “But you kind of have to push your pride aside. My role has changed. But I still have a job to do, I’m still part of this team, and I am still going to do everything I can to help this team. It’s just figuring it out how I can do that in this new role.”
Bradford acknowledged that the pre-game roster bonuses of $312,000 he’d make by being active clearly factored into the team’s decision to make him inactive.
“I think it was pretty obvious why (Wilks) made it,” Bradford said. “Obviously I wish I would’ve played better, that’s for sure. I wish I could’ve helped this team get off to a better start.”
- The Cardinals list RB Chase Edmonds (back), DE Markus Golden (knee), T D.J. Humphries (knee), G Mike Iupati (shoulder), DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot), and T Andre Smith (hamstring) as questionable for Week 6.
Rams DT Ndamukong Suh singled out the team’s run defense and said it’s been “terrible, without question.”
“Terrible, without question,” Suh said, via Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com. “That’s my personal opinion, . . . It’s terrible just from a standpoint of how much run yardage we gave up.”
“I can’t think back to many times to defenses that I’ve been a part of that have been [at] 191 yards, let alone many times over 100,” Suh added. “I’ve been a part of some great defenses where we’ve, in a year, not allowed but maybe one team to get close to 100 or over 100.
“So that’s what I pride myself on and want to maintain that and we have all the tools to be able to be that type of defense.”
- Rams WRs Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks (concussions) both practiced fully on Friday and are expected to be cleared tomorrow to play in Week 6.
- The Rams officially ruled out K Greg Zuerlein (right groin) for Sunday’s game against the Broncos.
