The St. Louis Rams were certainly pleased to see quarterback Sam Bradford participate in non-contact drills during spring minicamps and OTAs, but that doesn't mean Bradford has completely recovered from the high ankle sprain that torpedoed his 2011 season. With training camp set to start on July 28, Bradford recently told reporters that the ankle is not 100 percent yet, but he hopes it will become a non-factor by the time camp begins:
"It's good, it's good. I would say there's still days where it's not 100 percent, but I really haven't had any major setbacks. It seems to be getting better every week. I'm hoping by the time training camp gets here that it'll really be a non-factor."
The Rams have plenty riding on Bradford's health from an offensive perspective in 2012, so this will be something to watch very closely when the team reports to camp at the end of July.
