Sam Bradford Injury Update: Rams' QB Wants To Come Back This Season

Despite fighting a high left ankle sprain and facing the prospect of playing behind a tattered offensive line for a two-win team, St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford said on Tuesday that he still wants to play this season.

I've told Coach [Steve Spagnuolo] that I'm trying to get my ankle as healthy as quick as possible. I want to be out there as soon as it's good enough to go. I expect to be on the field.

Though Bradford's desire to lead his team is admirable, it's highly unlikely that the Rams front office or coaching staff is willing to risk his long term health in the team's final two, and mostly meaningless, games of the season. if Bradford does indeed sit out for the remainder of the year, Kellen Clemens, who started in his stead last week, is expected to finish out the season under center.
