Sam Bradford missed 6 games and was limited in several other games with a high ankle sprain last season and now, almost a year after the initial injury, it is still giving him problems. According to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, Bradford could need surgery on the ankle after the season. Bradford, however, doesn’t seem too worried calling it a “non-issue.” He also said “I think it’s as good as it’s going to feel. It’s something that we’re managing right now. I’ve been able to take every snap so far without any setbacks and I think that’s a positive sign.”
Guys get routine surgeries in the offseason all the time and it sounds like this will be the kind of surgery that Bradford would require, if he does in fact need surgery. He’s not a mobile quarterback to begin with so this won’t be a huge issue. He’s walking without a limp and has had a solid preseason, completing 13 of 18 for 159 yards and 2 touchdowns. He won’t be running for his life as much this season in the Rams’ new quick throw west coast offense, which he excelled in as a rookie, leading this team to 7-9. Right tackle and left guard are weak points for the Rams up front, but other than that, they should have an overall decent line, certainly upgraded over the one that allowed 55 sacks last season.
