Sam Bradford not looking healthy in camp


The St. Louis Rams are hoping to have their starting quarterback Sam Bradford at full health this season, but that doesn’t appear to be the case at this point in time.

According to a report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Bradford has looked slow and is moving gingerly at times. Both of those issues are very usual for players that are coming off of ACL tears, but they are still very concerning signs with the season closing in quickly.

Bradford is going to be asked to carry quite a load this coming season with the offense that they currently have. They have solid running backs to take the pressure off of him, but they have some big play threats at wide receiver and need their starting quarterback in order to reach their full potential. It’s good to hear that Britt is having a surprising offseason, as he is going to slide right into a major role with the offense if he can figure things out and turn his career around.

Last season with the Rams, Bradford showed a much improved arm and decision making ability. He played in just seven regular season games before going down with his ACL tear, but threw for 1,687 yards and 14 touchdowns, while throwing just four interceptions. If he is able to get back to full health and get back out there this season, he should be able to get back to the form that he showed last season and tear defenses up like the Rams expected when they drafted him.

All of that being said, it is going to be very interesting to see how the Rams use Bradford in the preseason. They need to get him back out on the field for some action before the regular season rolls around, but they also don’t want to rush him out there if he isn’t ready. Hopefully Bradford is able to get things turned around and heal fully by Week 3 of the preseason to get some game practice under his belt.

    This is utterly ridiculous…”Bradford not looking healthy in camp”. First of all they should have known going into the off season they needed a QB. The draft was deep in QB’s.and they pretty much passed on all of them. For the past several months we were told how well ahead of schedule Bradford has been in his rehab. Now he is looking tentative? What a way to look forward to the upcoming season. Truth is…even when healthy Bradford has been less than effective for the last three years. I have said over and over…Fisher’s commitment to his QB is foolhardy. We’ve had a plethora of draft picks the last two years and Fisher has refused to bring in a new signal caller. Fisher’s loyalty has kept this team from being a competitive player in the west division.Now we are stuck with the real possibility of another injury plagued season from our starting QB and a moderately talented 34 year old journeymen backup. Nice going Fisher!
