When Do We Start Worrying About The Sam Bradford Injury Thing?

We're too busy worrying about Sam Bradford getting shown up by Andrew Luck right now to really get nervous about it, but I think it's only a matter of time: When do we get freaked out about Sam Bradford's ankle injury? Earlier this month we heard Bradford somehow hadn't fully recovered from his high ankle sprain, the unpleasant capper on his 2011 season, and while Bradford's insisted since that he's okay it's been a non-denial-denial every time: They'll deal with it, or he'll be okay, or it's not a big deal, not he's feeling great or it's not a deal at all.

The offensive line proved in Pretend Week 1 that it still isn't entirely up to the task of protecting Sam Bradford, ankle and all; as he continues to get hit he's either going to look mobile and ready for that kind of pressure or he's going to struggle in such a way that gets us petrified about his ankle problems once again.

I give it, personally, one more loss.

But hey: At least it isn't his shoulder we're still worrying about!
