Fisher: Bradford to play quarter or more...Florida charges dropped against Rams LB DunbarST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, coming off knee surgery that sidelined him the final nine games last season, will play at least a quarter in the second preseason game.
Coach Jeff Fisher said Thursday Bradford could run the offense into the second quarter Saturday night against the Green Bay Packers. Fisher said there were no concerns about Bradford's left knee.
Left tackle Jake Long, also coming off knee surgery, will be held out until the third preseason game. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins returned to practice from a hamstring injury, but Fisher wasn't sure whether he'd play.
Fisher said rookie Michael Sam's playing time could hinge on how well the defense plays. Sam got 32 snaps at left defensive end in a 26-24 loss to New Orleans, many of them on two long drives early in the game, plus six snaps on special teams.
Florida charges dropped against Rams LB Dunbar
MIAMI (AP) - Prosecutors in Miami have dropped battery and disorderly conduct charges against St. Louis Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar stemming from a fight outside a South Beach nightclub.
Dunbar attorney Howard Srebnick said Thursday that prosecutors told a judge that the case will not be pursued.
Dunbar and NBA free agent Donte Green were both charged following a July 20 altercation outside the Dream nightclub. The charges are still pending against Green. Dunbar had claimed he was only defending himself.
Dunbar, 29, was signed in 2008 as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College by the New Orleans Saints and has played for the Rams since 2012. The NFL suspended Dunbar four games in 2013 for violating its substance abuse policy.
