Next Monday will mark three months since Rams quarterback Sam Bradford tore his ACL and Bradford’s been busy rehabbing at the team’s facility.
Bradford and trainer Reggie Scott have been working to strengthen his left knee since he had surgery two months ago. Bradford, who has also been doing some throwing while sitting on a stool, plans to stay in St. Louis to continue working with a goal of being ready to go when the team heads to camp this summer.
“Barring any major setbacks, I feel very confident for camp,” Bradford said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “From everything that Reggie’s told me, he feels like that’s an attainable goal. He feels really good with where we’re at right now, and the progress that we’ve made in these first eight weeks. I think as long as we continue on this track, I’m confident that will be a reasonable thing.”
The Rams have the second overall pick in the draft, but haven’t publicly wavered from their commitment to Bradford, who was having his best pro season before the injury, as the starting quarterback since securing that pick. Assuming they stick to that, Bradford’s health will be essential to the team’s hopes of taking a step forward next season because they’re unlikely to do it with Kellen Clemens or another backup running the offense in his stead.
