Less than eight months after tearing his left ACL, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is taking part in organized team activities and doing more than expected. Specifically, he took part in a pair of seven-on-seven throwing drills Friday, which was expected. Then he took part in an 11-on-11 hurry-up drill, which wasn't. Bradford also scrambled to avoid pressure on one play and completed a deep pass on another play, all while wearing a brace on his surgically repaired left knee.
Those throws could have looked like wounded ducks, and I wouldn't have cared. The fact that Bradford is on the field and already running the two-minute drill is very encouraging. He should be fine for Week 1. However, the Rams still don't have a true No. 1 receiver to help out Bradford; just a myriad of athletes who have a collective ton of unfulfilled potential. Even in a pass-heavy system, Bradford is a middling QB2.
