Fisher: Bradford To Play Quarter or More

WGIL Newsroom . State Sports 122

St Louis RamsST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, coming off knee surgery that sidelined him the final nine games last season, will play at least a quarter in the second preseason game.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Thursday Bradford could run the offense into the second quarter Saturday night against the Green Bay Packers. Fisher said there were no concerns about Bradford’s left knee.

Left tackle Jake Long, also coming off knee surgery, will be held out until the third preseason game. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins returned to practice from a hamstring injury, but Fisher wasn’t sure whether he’d play.

Fisher said rookie Michael Sam’s playing time could hinge on how well the defense plays. Sam got 32 snaps at left defensive end in a 26-24 loss to New Orleans, many of them on two long drives early in the game, plus six snaps on special teams.
