St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford recently claimed that his ankle still isn’t 100 percent. Head coach Jeff Fisher isn’t concerned about it.
“There’s going to be residual effects from high-ankle sprains, especially when you come back into practice like he is,” Fisher said.
“But we don’t anticipate it to be a problem, and it hasn’t been one. He’s moving around fine.”

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) -- Rodger Saffold is feeling better than at any other time in his NFL career.
