St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford told reporters on Sunday that his ankle still isn’t 100 percent healthy, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
“It’s close,” Bradford 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.”
Bradford did admit that it’s been frustrating that his ankle is still bothering him.
“Yeah, it is a little bit frustrating that it’s somewhat there still,” Bradford said. “I thought that with rest in the offseason, it would’ve been gone by now. But it’s not. I’ve talked about it with Reg (trainer Reggie Scott). I understand what his plan is, and I think we’re doing as good as we can right now in managing it.”
If the Rams are going to have a chance to bounce back this season, they’ll need Bradford to be healthy.

Regardless of their investment in him, the St. Louis Rams will have to rethink where their loyalties lie in 2013 if Sam Bradford does not take a major leap forward in this his third year in the league.
That is not a prediction that Bradford will do poorly.

Updates. New St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher admits he is not that familiar with veteran cornerback Bradley Fletcher.
But he likes what he has seen so far.
Fletcher's problem has been staying on the field.

For years, while living under the shadow of the Greatest Show on Turf, the Rams lost games and fans through unfocused and uninspired attempts to become what they once were.
By finally choosing a new model, the feeling in Rams Park is that the franchise has finally gained some traction in the uphill climb back to respectability. Along with a major upheaval internally, the Rams have...
At Rams Camp on a sweltering friday afternoon, I paid close attention to Sam Bradford - his timing and his targets in his passing drills. I wanted to pay particular attention to how quickly he was able to deliver the ball after the snap, and whether he could avoid "sacks" behind his offensive line.
The good news is that Bradford was every bit as sharp as recent camp...
The Rams finally addressed the back up running spot, too late we fear to extend the great Steven Jackson's career. They selected Isaiah Pead in the 2nd round of April's NFL draft and he is drawing impressive comparisons to players like Chris Johnson and LeSean McCoy.

This question interrupted a little debate between Wynnde and I, and got me thinking. We all are pinning our hopes on Brian Schottenheimer to resurrect Sam Bradford's rookie promise, and get him back on the "rising young...
After a breakout 2009 campaign in which he caught a career high 107 passes for 1220 yards, former New York Giant wide receiver Steve Smith appeared to be on the brink of a stellar NFL career.
Unfortunately, a serious knee injury cost the former USC star most of the 2010 season, and he failed to do much with the Eagles after signing with Philadelphia as a free agent in 2011.

A lot of things have changed over the past few years for the Rams, following Georgia Frontiere's death. Even as questions remain over the team's long-term future in St Louis, the Rams have been working to reconnect with the local fan base. The latest example of this...
