Sam Bradford likely to sit out Friday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The Rams likely will hold out quarterback Sam Bradford from Friday's preseason opener against the Saints, reports ESPN.com. Bradford has shown "no signs of trouble" with his surgically repaired knee, but the team is playing it safe.

"He's done everything we needed to see right now at practice," coach Jeff Fisher said. "So he's going to play in the preseason; unlikely that he's going to play this week. ... It's not because he can't; it's because it's our choice."


Sam Bradford thinks his arm is stronger


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is noticeably bigger in his upper body thanks to a rehab in which he couldn't work out much else, reports ESPN.com. Bradford, coming off knee surgery, suggested his arm might be stronger, and his passes seem "to be coming out with as much or more velocity than in years past," the report said.

On Saturday, "Bradford had plenty of zip on all of his passes, none more than the perfectly thrown 60-plus yard touchdown pass he threw to receiver Kenny Britt." 

"Coming into this camp is probably the strongest I’ve been from the waist up and I think it probably has paid off a little bit," Bradford said. "I feel like I do have a little more zip on the ball and feel like I can make some of those throws that maybe were a little slower last year."


Fisher impressed by Sam Bradford's explosive plays


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher told the media Thursday that the most impressive part of Sam Bradford's training camp thus far isn't just that he's back on the field after tearing an ACL, but that the passing game has become much more explosive. 

"We are getting a lot more explosive plays," Fisher explained. "Sam's throwing the ball real well. The balls going down the field on time to Kenny (Britt) and to (Brian) Quick and to Tavon (Austin) and Cookie (Jared Cook) and all the guys. ... Now, before you put the shoulder pads on there's a lot of congestion in the pocket, but now the pocket's starting to clean itself up because offense has pads on things are starting to even out a little bit, so we're getting time to make those throws."

Before getting hurt in 2013 Bradford averaged 241.0 passing yards and two touchdowns per game. 


Sam Bradford 'full-go' for start of training camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) will be "full-go" for the start of training camp, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Sam is in great shape," Fisher said. "He's ready to go. We don't have (reservations) — right now as we speak, as camp starts — he's full-go. If we need to back him down here and there, we'll back him down."

Fisher indicated Bradford may not play in the preseason opener against New Orleans. But if Bradford doesn't play vs. the Saints, Fisher said it won't be injury-related.


Healthy Sam Bradford won't be asked to do too much


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford appears to be on schedule for a return to health from his season-ending knee injury, and the Rams expect him to be close to or at full speed for the start of camp, reports ESPN.

Bradford will get a third season in coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's offense, but it's safe to assume the Rams won't ask Bradford to carry the load for what will likely be a run-heavy offense.

The Rams have clearly abandoned the spread approach they were installing this time last year, but they will almost certainly be more balanced than they were after Bradford's injury in 2013. 


Sam Bradford says knee feels 'really good'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford said his surgically-repaired knee feels "really good" following OTA workouts. Bradford is coming off last year's torn ACL.

"I think part of it is building up the endurance in my legs," Bradford said. "I can kind of feel a little bit of fatigue today, but I think that's normal just not having been out here practicing like that. That's really what I'm going to work on during this five-week break."

Coach Jeff Fisher was glad to see Bradford able to participate in OTAs.

"We had a plan throughout," Fisher said. "We allowed him to do some things in the skill development, and he did. We got him on the field in the first couple OTAs. Just in the passing fashion he was good. Then today and obviously on Tuesday, he participated in team periods - that was encouraging. He's got a plan for the summer. He's going to get away for a little bit. He needs to get away. He's been here every day, and he'll come back ready to go."

Fisher still believes in Bradford as a franchise quarterback.

"Yeah, there’s no doubt," Fisher said. "He's got the vision, the decision making ability, the arm strength and mobility to put up great numbers."


Sam Bradford takes a rest Thursday


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/6/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford didn't practice on Thursday, though it was scheduled that way according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Bradford is still working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last season. 

"[Y]ou'll be able to see him (Friday)," Fisher said. "We're going to have him participate in about half of the OTAs. He'll probably get five of them in. (Friday) he's going to throw two 7-on-7 periods. He threw a 7-on-7 period with the 1s on Tuesday."

Fisher did admit that Bradford looked "really good" on Tuesday and thought it was the right thing to do to keep him out of team drills. After putting on some upper-body weight while rehabbing, Bradford is fully expected to participate in training camp.

Rams call Sam Bradford "our guy"


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) There had been a number of reports suggesting the Rams were serious about drafting Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in the NFL draft, but on Tuesday night the team made their feelings about quarterback Sam Bradford clear. 

During a draft party for 2,000 season-ticket holders, Rams coach Jeff Fisher got on a stage right next to Bradford and told the crowd "Sam's our guy." The crowd gave a standing ovation. 

Bradford appeared to have put on some upper-body muscle, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He also had some strong knowledge about the Rams' plans around their Manziel smokescreen as league sources say he knew all along the team was going to check in on the prospect but not draft him. 

Bradford has two years left on his current contract. Last year he threw 14 touchdowns in seven games before tearing his ACL and missing the entire season.

Fisher: Bradford 'realistically' ahead of schedule


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher figures quarterback Sam Bradford will at least throw during OTAs this spring, he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Bradford is working his way back from a torn ACL. According to Fisher, saying Bradford is ahead of schedule isn't just lip service. 

"You're not gonna hear a head coach say he has a player on his team that's not ahead of schedule coming off an ACL. Everybody says they're all ahead of schedule. But he is realistically way ahead of schedule. He's working hard," Fisher said. 

Fisher predicts Bradford will be ready to go for the start of the season and even progress to the next step of his career, but the Rams are still sniffing around quarterbacks. The Post-Dispatch says "signs point" to the team drafting a quarterback in May, if only for precautionary reasons since Bradford has two years left on his current deal.
