>>Rams Acquire Broncos' WR Lloyd

(St. Louis, MO)  --  The Rams have another weapon for quarterback Sam Bradford to throw to.  The Rams have acquired Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Lloyd from the Denver Broncos.  The Rams gave up a conditional sixth-round draft pick in return.  The pick could become a fifth-rounder based on the number of catches by Lloyd.  The 30-year-old Lloyd will be a free agent after the season.

>>Rams' Bradford Has High Ankle Sprain

(St. Louis, MO)  --  Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is day-to-day with a high left ankle sprain.  Head coach Steve Spagnuolo confirmed the injury on Monday, saying Bradford is wearing a walking boot for protection and will be limited in practice this week.  The second-year signal-caller suffered the injury during the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers, but remained in the game.

>>Bears' Harris Requests Trade

(Lake Forest, IL)  --  Chicago Bears safety Chris Harris has requested a trade.  Harris, who was benched, then later placed on the inactive list for the team's blowout win over Minnesota on Sunday night, announced his intensions on a Chicago radio show on Monday morning.  Harris, a seven-year veteran, was a second-team All-Pro in 2010.  He started in the Bears' season-opening win over Atlanta, but pulled his hamstring late in the contest and missed the next three games due to the injury.  He returned to the starting lineup on October 10th against the Lions and his missed assignment led to a 73-yard TD by Detroit.  The trade deadline is today.

In related Bears' news, head coach Lovie Smith said on Monday that the chest injury Devin Hester suffered in the team's 39-10 win over the Vikings on Sunday night was not serious.  Smith said it was nothing more than "bumps and bruises," and that the receiver isn't likely to miss any time.  Hester suffered the injury late in the third quarter while blocking on a Marion Barber run.  He didn't play at all in the fourth quarter.
