Sam Bradford injury update: Jeff Fisher 'very optimistic' about quick return

The St.Louis Rams suffered quite the scare on Saturday during their preseason matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Starting quarterback Sam Bradford went down and had to be carted off the field.

But ESPN’s Adam Schefter quickly reported that Bradford didn’t suffer an ACL injury, which was the immediate concern following the play.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher took a torch to Schefter in his postgame interview, but still hinted that Bradford avoided a major injury.

It would devastating for the Rams if Bradford were to miss significant time, so Schefter and Fisher’s suggestions about the lack of severity of Bradford’s injury is great news for the team.

Bradford threw for 1,687 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2013 before a season-ending ACL injury.
