Ankle to keep Bradford out

ST. LOUIS — The Rams ruled quarterback Sam Bradford out for today's game against the Cowboys, meaning A.J. Feeley will start. Bradford sustained a high left ankle sprain in last week's loss to the Packers and did not practice all week. He had been listed as questionable before Saturday, when St. Louis signed QB Tom Brandstater from its practice squad.

Vikings CB arrested, out: Cornerback Chris Cook, who has started the past three games for the Vikings, was arrested on two domestic assault charges and booked into jail. Cook, 24, is being held without bail and will not appear in court until Monday. He's being held on probable cause for domestic assault/strangulation, a felony-level offense. Cook also faces a charge of fifth-degree domestic assault, a misdemeanor. The Vikings have ruled him out for today's game.

Jaguars: After a 24-hour extension, the blackout for Monday's game was lifted. As of Friday, about 3,000 tickets remained. It is not known if they were sold or the team paid 34 cents on the dollar to buy them, which is allowed under league rules.

Raiders: Kicker Dave Rayner was signed in case Sebastian Janikowski's sore hamstring sidelines him. Rayner has kicked for six teams over five years, most recently the Lions in 2010. Also, reported the team has installed plays specifically for rookie quarterback Terrelle Pryor and could run them today. He has practiced for only two weeks after serving a five-game suspension.
