Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) participated in back-to-back practices for the first time during organized team activities Thursday.

An excellent step forward in Bradford's recovery and a sign that he will be ready and under center for Week 1. Once he's in training camp and does a little more scrambling and maybe takes a few light hits, we'll have a better idea of how confident he will be to stand there in the pocket and take his lumps. All signs point to him being a reasonably decent QB2 this year.ANALYST: Howard Bender
