Fisher encouraged by Bradford's performance in preseason debut

Make or break. Do or die. Back against the wall. Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has heard the narrative so often, he's probably wanted to scream. But he couldn't say much. All he could do was work like the devil to return from a torn ACL and then begin showing on the field why the Rams selected him with the first overall pick in the 2010 draft. So it was that exactly 300 days...
