Rams QB Sam Bradford to play a quarter or more vs. Packers

Friday August 15th, 2014

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford will get extensive action in the team's second preseason game on Saturday against the Green Bay Packers, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said.

Bradford did not play in the team's opener against the New Orleans Saints. He hasn't played since Oct. 20 after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and missed the last nine games of the season.

"We're going to play him a quarter, maybe more," Fisher said to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Fisher says there are no issues or concerns about Bradford's surgically repaired knee.

"None whatsoever," Fisher said. "He's our starting quarterback and he's healthy. He's going to play in a preseason game, that's it."
