The Rams have watched and waited all offseason for their injured offensive stars to get well.
And now there’s a clear timetable for quarterback Sam Bradford and left tackle Jake Long.
“We’re going to play him a quarter, maybe more,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said of Bradford, via Joe Lyons of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
That means Saturday’s game against the Packers will be his first game action since tearing his ACL last October against the Panthers.
Fisher also said that Long (coming off his late December ACL/MCL tear) wouldn’t play until next week’s preseason game against the Browns.
All reports are that Bradford has looked good throughout training camp, but getting him back to being comfortable in the pocket will be essential if the Rams are going to keep up in the NFC West arms race.
