    The high-ankle sprain that plagued Bradford for much of the 2011 season didn't completely heal until two months into the offseason, according to Fisher.

    "Sam finished his rehab probably about a month ago," Fisher said. "The ankle lingered a little bit in the offseason. He's in good shape now."

    Bradford suffered the injury Oct. 16 on the Rams' last offensive play in Green Bay. The ankle never got totally healthy after that game as Bradford missed six games altogether and four of the last five. After the season, Fisher said team medical officials wanted Bradford to stay off the ankle as much as possible to let it heal.

    "Now had it been during the season, they probably would've taken a different approach to the rehab," Fisher said. "But they felt the best thing for him was to just shut it down. My understanding is that as part of his rehab, he has been doing his drops and sets, and throwing some balls. But we're not permitted to be a part of that."

    (As part of the offseason rules, coaches aren't allowed to work with players, or even watch them work, early in the offseason.)

    But with the Rams' offseason program starting next week, Bradford is expected to do some voluntary throwing. (Again, coaches can't be part of that for a couple of weeks.)

    "In talking with the trainer, he's cleared and ready to throw the ball a little bit," Fisher said.
