The St. Louis Rams revealed that they will start Sam Bradford at quarterback in their second preseason game after sitting him out in the opener.
The St. Louis Rams chose not to play starting quarterback Sam Bradford in their season opener, and they received promising play from backups Shaun Hill and Austin Davis.
However, Bradford will be back to start for the Rams in their second preseason game. “I haven’t decided how much, but yeah he’s gonna play this week,” head coach Jeff Fisher told the St. Louis Dispatch.
Bradford is still recovering from a torn ACL that kept him out for the majority of last season, so the Rams will keep a close eye on him to see whether he is on track to be fully healthy for the start of the regular season.
The Rams have provided Bradford with more weapons and are quietly building one of the NFL’s top defenses, so the excuses for the 2010 first overall pick are running out.
If he struggles early on, the Rams may be tempted to replace him with Hill if he continues to perform well.
