According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford may need to undergo offseason ankle surgery.  There is the chance that just resting his ankle after the season will help.

“Sam Bradford will never be fully healthy this season. That’s an established reality for the potential superstar quarterback. His ankle is not 100 percent, he is still battling soreness from the ligaments being stretched, and managing him through this condition will remain a daily chore for the Rams and their training staff.

“That’s not to say it will doom his season, or be a constant bother. But there will be good days and bad days — it’s the nature of the injury — and when the season ends there is a definite possibility that a corrective procedure will be prescribed, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

“Naturally at this point, just a few weeks into training camp, no one here is thinking that far forward. And depending on how the ankle withstands the rigors of the regular season, prolonged offseason rest could be prescribed rather than surgery,” reported La Canfora.
