Rams Park (FootballStL) -- St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (finger) was practicing at full strength on Wednesday’s after injuring his finger during the 4th quarter in a 31-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

“The hand feels ten times better than it did on Sunday or even Monday,” Bradford said after Wednesday’s practice.  “That’s encouraging and hopefully it’ll be 100% by Monday.”

Bradford left the game after hitting his finger on another player’s helmet.  Initially, Rams personnel thought Bradford suffered a nerve injury in his index finger on his throwing hand, but it was discovered to be just a bruise. 

“I wouldn’t have come out of the game if it wasn’t serious,” Bradford said.  “I couldn’t feel it and couldn’t move it so I really was concerned.”

Bradford completed 17 passes out of 30 attempts for 188 yards before being replaced by A.J. Feeley during the 4th quarter.  The Rams will face the New York Giants in their first Monday Night Football game since December 11, 2006.
