Sam Bradford QB STL 26 Days

Bradford left Saturday's preseason game in Cleveland due to a leg injury, Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reports.

Bradford walked off the field with an evident limp and immediately headed to the locker room. The injury is especially worrisome due to the torn left ACL that ended his 2013 campaign prematurely. The extent of the ailment should be known in the near future, and if he misses any time, Shaun Hill will helm the Rams' offense.

Bradford completed 9-of-12 passes for 101 yards and one touchdown during Saturday's preseason defeat to the Packers.

Making his first appearance since tearing the ACL in his left knee in Week 7 last year, Bradford cobbled together two lengthy drives, the latter of which resulted in an 11-yard score to Lance Kendricks. The strike threaded the needle and is representative of the investment made in Bradford as the No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft. The third preseason game customarily includes the starters' most significant run, so expect him to play up to a half next Saturday in Cleveland.

Bradford is expected to play at least one quarter in Saturday's preseason game against the Packers, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Although Bradford has been a full-go in training camp, the Rams opted to hold him out of their first exhibition against the Saints last week as a way to manage the workload on his surgically repaired knee. They will begin easing him back into game action Saturday, with coach Jeff Fisher leaving the door open for Bradford to play into the second quarter.

Bradford is set to start Saturday's preseason game against Green Bay, reports.

Bradford likely will only see a series or two, but it will still be significant as he hasn't seen game speed in 300 days. Bradford struggled to click with his young receiving corps last year, but he has looked solid since camp began.

As expected, Bradford will sit out Friday's preseason opener against the Saints, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

No surprise here, as the Rams don't want to risk Bradford's health, especially coming off an ACL injury. He should start the second preseason game and see a few series, however.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Sam Bradford (knee) is full-go for the start of training camp.

"Sam is in great shape," Fisher said. "He's ready to go. We don't have (reservations) - right now as we speak, as camp starts - he's full-go. If we need to back him down here and there, we'll back him down." Bradford tore his ACL in Week 7 and participated in spring practices. Fisher added the Rams may hold him out of the preseason opener as a precaution, but he will get some exhibition work. He's entering the summer as a back-end QB2.

Appearing on The Dan Patrick Show, Rams coach Jeff Fisher insisted the Rams never shopped Sam Bradford in the run up to the draft.

Fisher claimed that the Rams not only made zero calls, but received zero. It strains belief, but Bradford's contract always made a deal a long-shot. Yahoo's Charles Robinson reported Friday that the Rams would have given Johnny Manziel stronger consideration had they received a "significant trade offer" for Bradford. That's more plausible than Fisher's claim that Bradford's St. Louis future was never in doubt.

Yahoo investigative reporter Charles Robinson suggests the Rams would have given Johnny Manziel more serious consideration in the draft had they received a "significant trade offer" for Sam Bradford.

It's believed the Rams had some pre-draft discussions with the Vikings, but nothing came of it, likely due to Bradford's unwieldy contract. The Rams passed on Manziel (twice), and can now sell their interest as feigned, or a "smokescreen." As Robinson writes, "only (GM Les) Snead and coach Jeff Fisher will ever know their true intentions." Bradford is entering a make-or-break year.

Sources tell the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Sam Bradford was informed of the Johnny Manziel smokescreen by the Rams before it happened.

The Rams aren't going to take a quarterback in Round 1, and probably won't in Round 2 either. They were just trying to drum up interest in the No. 2 overall pick by leaking Manziel interest, and they informed Bradford of the ploy so he didn't feel disrespected. The Post-Dispatch believes the Rams will take one of the top-two offensive tackles (Auburn's Greg Robinson or Texas A&M's Jake Matthews) if they get "stuck" with the second overall pick.
