Quarterback Sam Bradford increased his workload Thursday, sharing snaps on the first unit with A.J. Feeley in preparation for Sunday's game in Cleveland against the Browns.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo declared Bradford's performance "pretty good. Got more reps today than he did yesterday and certainly more than he had last Thrusday. And yet, we try not to give them all to him because the more you put on him, then you're going backwards a little bit. I think he's progressing pretty good. He's a tough guy."

Defensive tackle Darell Scott also increased his workload in his rehab from a concussion suffered October 23. After participating in conditioning drills Wednesday, Scott was cleared for contact. The team practiced in shells, though, meaning contact was limited Thursday. Yet Scott could be ready to play Sunday, as could fellow DT Gary Gibson, who has been nursing a sore hip since Sunday.

"I think we're over the hump. We might be good there," Spagnuolo said of Scott. "We'll have to decide who will be up."

Other players limited in practice Thursday were defensive end C.J. Ah You (ankle), linebackers Josh Hull (hamstring) and Bryan Kehl (ankle), defensive end Eugene Sims (shoulder), running back Steven Jackson (foot), safety Darian Stewart (ankle) and defensive end James Hall (knee).

Running back Jerious Norwood (hamstring), wide receiver Danario Alexander (hamstring) and tight end Lance Kendricks (foot) did not practice.

"It's coming. He got off the crutches but it will be a hard one to get to the game," Spagnuolo said of Kendricks.
