For the first time since the St. Louis Rams drafted their franchise guy in Sam Bradford in 2010, the quarterback position seems to be in question with Bradford coming off of a torn ACL.
Rams fans held their breath when Bradford tore his ACL in week seven against the Carolina Panthers late in the fourth quarter as he was running out of bounds. The Rams then were forced to turn to backup quarterback Kellen Clemens and managed to finish the season 7-9.
Things seem to be looking up for Bradford however, as he has already been cleared to run on a treadmill by the Rams training staff according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports. It may seem small, but this is a big step in the recovery process of the Rams starting quarterback.
Bradford probably won’t have a live concert-like scene and start jumping rope in front of a large group of people like Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III did last offseason, but it looks like Bradford’s rehab is right on schedule and that he will in fact be ready for the beginning of training camp. and the beginning of the 2014 NFL season.
It is still unsure of how Bradford will look on the football field coming off of this big injury, but as of right now things are certainly looking up for Bradford.
