Shoulder Injury Could Be a Chronic Problem for Sam Bradford
Much like the way knee injuries or tight hamstrings bother some guys, Sam Bradford’s shoulder injury looks like it could turn into a chronic problem. The shoulder was initially injured when Bradford was slammed to the turf against BYU and he missed a month to recover from the sprain. After playing against Baylor last weekend and having a good game, Bradford got slammed to the turf in his second series against Texas Saturday and did not return. The hit was reminiscent of the one against BYU because of the problem it caused to Bradford’s shoulder. Check it out:
It’s pretty clear to me that Bradford needs surgery on the shoulder to try and repair it. Think about it — he gets knocked out of the game every time he takes a sack and gets slammed to the ground on the shoulder — you telling me that’s not going to happen almost every game? Trying to return this season doesn’t even seem like an option to me and going to the NFL with his stock this low would be a worse idea. Surgery is the answer and then Bradford has to hope he rebounds next year. Sucks for him and the program.
