11/26/12 - QB Sam Bradford had the wind knocked out of him on an incompletion in the second quarter and left the field for one play. When he came back, he hit WR Chris Givens for 18 yards on third-and-10. After three Steven Jackson runs for 15 yards, Bradford connected with TE Lance Kendricks on a 37-yard touchdown pass that tied the game at 14 with 1:53 left in the first half.
Asked if there was any chance he wasn't coming back in the game, Bradford said, "No, not at all. It really wasn't even that bad. I just got the wind knocked out of me. I knew that as soon I could I was getting back out there. Fortunately, I got in there and got a big third-down conversion to (lead to a) score."
10/14/12 - QB Sam Bradford showed up on the injury report Friday with a knee injury, then had the best running game of his career against the Dolphins. His 34 yards rushing were the most in a game in his career, a 21-yard run was the longest of his career and a 1-yard touchdown run was the team's first rushing touchdown of the season. He also completed 26 of 39 passes for 315 yards and a 91.3 passer rating.
09/10/12 - QB Sam Bradford finished the game with a 105.1 passer rating, the fourth best rating of his career. Previously, he has registered a 112.4 vs. Carolina (10/31/10), 113.3 at Denver (11/28/10) and 107.0 vs. San Francisco (12/26/10).
08/18/12 - QB Sam Bradford is growing weary with the questions. But there they came again Thursday after a report by Jason LaCanfora on cbssports.com claimed the quarterback might need surgery on the ankle he injured last season. The key word was "might," but that didn't stop the panic from spreading.
So it was that Bradford was asked after practice about the reports. He said, "That would be news to me. To be honest, I'm tired of talking about the ankle. Until it causes me to miss reps or miss time, it's a non-issue."
And he hasn't missed any this summer. Granted, it's only been three weeks, and he hasn't yet gone through the grind of a complete game, but speculation of what might happen in at least five months is just that: speculation.
The reality is that the stretched ligaments from a high ankle sprain can linger. As coach Jeff Fisher said, "A high-ankle mechanism is serious stuff. There was a lot of separation in there last year. He tried to play through on it and he couldn't.
"You have options. You can go in and fix it (surgically) and you're talking about four to six months. Or you can just rehab it, which he did. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer. But he's really not having any issues. He's doing fine."
05/24/12 - QB Sam Bradford acknowledged that the ankle he injured during the 2011 season isn't totally healed, but he said it is close to being 100 percent. "It's getting there," Bradford said. "It feels better every week -- less soreness, more things I can do. It's definitely on the right track."
