Rams QB Sam Bradford hasn't missed one minute of practice time in camp. He came through the preseason opener unscathed, and has been moving around well in practice. He's not wearing a brace on his left ankle, nor is he walking with a limp.
Nonetheless, the ankle questions won't go away.
After the Rams' practice/scrimmage Aug. 4 at the Edward Jones Dome, Bradford raised eyebrows by saying the ankle wasn't 100-percent healthy and would have to be managed — or treated — as the camp and the season progressed.
Bradford didn't want to talk about the ankle, and said it's not an issue until he starts missing practice or games. Still, not being 100-percent should raise a red flag, because this is an injury that could easily resurface with one wrong twist or turn. Bradford doesn't have a lot of value coming into the season, but could easily change that with a bunch of young, talented and healthy receivers to work with. At 26th on our rankings, we consider Bradford a QB3 right now, and he likely won't get drafted in your league.
