Sam Bradford's Ankle Injury Doesn't Concern St. Louis Rams Coach Jeff Fisher

Sam Bradford's 2011 season was haunted by a high ankle sprain that caused the quarterback to miss six games and play injured in plenty of others. Bradford suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of St. Louis' 24-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers on October 16, but there remains some concern the sprain to the Oklahoma product could linger into this season.

New Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said on Tuesday that high ankle sprains could linger for up to a year, but doesn't expect Bradford to be too hampered by the injury this season.

"There’s going to be residual effects from high-ankle sprains, especially when you come back into practice like he is," Fisher said.

"But we don’t anticipate it to be a problem, and it hasn’t been one. He’s moving around fine."

A former No. 1 overall draft pick entering his third pro season, Bradford finished with 2,164 yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions for St. Louis in 2011.
