Morning Ram-blings: Bradford's recovery

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is still in the early stages of his recovery from the torn ACL he suffered in week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.

According to stltoday.com's Jim Thomas, it's so far, so good for Bradford in his rehabilitation. Bradford told Thomas that he's confident he'll be able to get back to work in time for training camp.

It's been just eight weeks since Bradford had surgery on the injured left knee, but it's a positive sign that Bradford seems to be progressing in the right direction. Of course, rehab updates at this early stage are essentially meaningless because Bradford has yet to reach a point where he can run or even break into a light jog. Until he reaches that point, speculation about a potential target return date is just that, speculation.

Still, enough time has passed since Bradford's injury that there's little reason to think he won't be able to get back in time for the start of camp or soon after at the latest. As the Rams get into their offseason program a couple months from now, we should have a much better handle on Bradford's status.


A roundup of Friday's Rams coverage appearing on ESPN.com. ... In the Ram-blings, we took a look at what could happen if offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer were to land the Vanderbilt head coaching job. ... Next, we looked at the news that Rams defensive end Robert Quinn has been selected as one of the captains for the Pro Bowl. ... Finally, we chatted about the Rams for about two hours, covering a wide variety of topics.


It looks like Schottenheimer isn't going anywhere this offseason, at least not to Vanderbilt. The Commodores have their head coach, and it's not Schottenheimer.

Slightly off topic but I enjoyed this read from Kevin Seifert on the absurdity that is the TV show "Friday Night Tykes."
