Sam Bradford Injury: Bradford Aggravates High Ankle Sprain, Expected To Practice

Sam Bradford aggravated his high ankle sprain Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, bringing back into the spotlight an injury that cost him two games in October, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that he isn’t expected to miss any practice, let alone playing time, after this latest recurrence.

Bradford, who played every snap in 2010, has given way on four occasions to A.J. Feeley this season. Feeley, who prior to this year hadn’t appeared in a regular-season game since 2007, has gone 41-for-75 for 392 yards, a touchdown, and an interception this year.

Bradford, in his disappointing 2011, has actually topped last year’s numbers on a per-attempt basis—he’s averaging 6.0 yards per attempt in 2011, identical to last year’s mark, and 5.7 yards per attempt adjusted for his extremely low touchdown and interception rates, up from last year’s 5.4. But I don’t think Josh McDaniels will be including this next to those Kyle Orton seasons on his résumé, if I had to guess.
