(FootballStL) -- St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long did not participate during Friday’s practice due to a sore ankle. Long also missed Thursday's practice.
Head coach Steve Spagnuolo says Long did not practice because the ankle did not get any better after being limited during practice on Wednesday.
Despite the ankle injury, Long sounds confident that he will play against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
Long has a five-game sack streak and a career-high ten sacks in 11 games this season.
