Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch checked in with Rams quarterback Sam Bradford on Thursday, nearly three months since the former No. 1 overall pick suffered a torn left ACL in Carolina. Bradford said he doesn't feel any pain in his surgically repaired knee, and "there's no reason why" he can't be ready to go once training camp opens in late July.
Bradford is rehabbing and working out at Rams headquarters five days a week for hours each day. He said he is able to do all leg exercises with little or no problem. He is even throwing passes while sitting on a stool to keep his torso muscles strong.
You get the feeling that Bradford is just really excited to work and get back for next season. Bradford threw 13 touchdowns and just three interceptions in six full games before the injury, and his completion percentage was starting to creep up. Just like last summer, Bradford will come cheap in drafts but possesses a lot of upside. The Rams really need their young receivers to start doing their part.
