No. 1 pick Sam Bradford to finish preseason as Rams' starting quarterback.

Sam Bradford will finish the preseason as the St. Louis Rams' starting quarterback, at least partly because veteran A.J. Feeley might not be ready to play.

Bradford had a big game in his first start, going 15 for 22 for 189 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 36-35 victory at New England on Thursday night.

The rookie from Oklahoma played the first half and completed his first six passes.

Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said Friday that it's unlikely that Feeley, who has a sprained thumb on his throwing hand, will be ready in time for the preseason finale on Thursday night against the Ravens.
