鈥?The Los Angeles Rams spent Tuesday celebrating their excellence on special teams after having their kicker Colts Braden Smith Jersey , punter and return specialist voted in as Pro Bowl starters.Less than a day later, the Rams were putting contingency plans into action after placing kicker Greg Zuerlein on injured reserve Wednesday.Zuerlein, who leads the NFL in scoring this season with 158 points, has been dealing with a lingering back injury all season and will undergo surgery Thursday morning to repair a herniated disc, head coach Sean McVay said.Sam Ficken, an undrafted free agent from Penn State, was signed after the Rams worked out 10-12 kickers Wednesday.The Rams (10-4) can clinch the NFC West by winning one of their final two games, at the Tennessee Titans on Sunday or hosting the San Francisco 49ers on Dec. 31. McVay said not having the reliable Zuerlein, who has made 126 of 139 career field goal attempts (90.6 percent) inside of 50 yards, might have an impact on how he calls plays on offense.“It does alter your approach a little bit in terms of the comfort level that Greg provides, and we got to be better in the red zone then,” McVay said.Zuerlein aggravated the injury before the 42-7 win at Seattle on Sunday, but was able to make two field goals and four of five extra points against the Seahawks despite being barely able to stand.“He couldn’t even get out of bed,” McVay said. “He slept on it funny. It was miraculous for him to even play the other day Fred Warner Jersey Elite , what a gutsy performance it was.”The discomfort got to a point where Zuerlein could no longer kick in the fourth quarter, forcing the Rams to keep their offense on the field on fourth down.Zuerlein was on pace to set a new team single-season record for scoring, breaking the previous mark set by kicker Jeff Wilkins with 163 points in 2003, and had an outside chance to chance to best LaDainian Tomlinson’s NFL single-season record of 186 points in 2006. Zuerlein made 38 of 40 field goals, including six of seven from 50 yards or longer, and 44 of 46 extra points.Zuerlein was voted to the Pro Bowl for the first time Tuesday, along with return specialist Pharoh Cooper. Hekker was voted in for the fourth time.McVay is hopeful that special teams coordinator John Fassel’s strong track record will carry over with Ficken, who has never kicked in a regular-season game and spent time in training camps with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs.Ficken made 24 of 29 field goals and all 28 extra point attempted in his senior season for the Nittany Lions in 2014.“Signing Ficken, it was something where you totally trust (Fassel), what he thinks is best,” McVay said. “I’m not going to pretend to be an expert. We had a bunch of guys come in. That was who he felt like was going to be the best option.”NOTES: LB Mark Barron, OLB Connor Barwin, C John Sullivan and LT Andrew Whitworth were held out of Wednesday’s walkthrough to rest. OLB Matt Longacre (back) did not participate.__ If he stays healthy.

Those words have shadowed Sam Bradford through most of his injury-plagued eight seasons in the NFL.

And it looms large again as the 30-year-old quarterback went through the first practice of Arizona Cardinals training camp Saturday.

”I think you have to be optimistic,” he said. ”I think if you’re not optimistic Youth Saquon Barkley Jersey , then the odds of staying healthy and the odds of playing well, they’re probably not that great.”

Injuries have limited Bradford to 80 games in his eight seasons. He’s twice torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and another left knee injury wiped out nearly all of his 2017 season in Minnesota.

When the Cardinals found themselves without any quarterbacks following the retirement of Carson Palmer, they turned to Bradford, who – when healthy – has put up strong numbers.

But Arizona also pulled off a deal that got them Josh Rosen in the draft, and Rosen has been impressive in offseason workouts. But for now, this is Bradford’s team.

”I want Josh with the mentality that he wants to start,” first-year Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said. ”I don’t waver that Sam is our starter. It’s his job to lose and competition makes us better across the board.”

The Cardinals brought Bradford along slowly in the offseason and didn’t make him a full participant in workouts until the three-day mandatory minicamp.

”His knee, talking to him, is stronger than it’s ever been,” Wilks said. ”I think the plan that we created and put in place for him back when we signed him has been phenomenal, just with the training staff, physical therapy, strength and conditioning.”

Bradford would say only that his knee feels the best it has since the injury.

”I feel good right now Cheap Customized Indianapolis Colts Jerseys ,” he said. ”My body’s’ in a good place and I think now we’ll see the benefits of the plan we had throughout OTAs and throughout the spring.”

Bradford signed a two-year, $40 million contract with the Cardinals, with $15 million guaranteed. But this is about more than money for Bradford, whose career earnings are listed at $124 million. He signed the largest rookie deal in history as the No. 1 overall pick in 2010, a contract that guaranteed him $50 million before he threw a pass.

The next season, rookie contracts were slotted at lower levels as part of the new labor agreement.

So what keeps Bradford going, rehab after grueling rehab?

”Just getting back out there and playing football,” he said. ”I think you just realize how much you enjoy it, how special it is to be out there, to play the game. That’s really why I do this, why I continue to come back, it’s to be there on Sundays and to be out there with my guys and play football again.”

Bradford’s love of the game is clear to Wilks.

”That’s what you see,” the coach said. ”He’s made enough money that he’s taken care of his family for the rest of his life. But his passion and love for the game and wanting to compete – and I think he has a lot doubters out there.”

When he can play, Bradford plays well.

The only full game he played a year ago – Minnesota’s season opener against New Orleans – he completed 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. In his 15 starts with the Vikings in 2016 Cheap Customized Carolina Panthers Jerseys , Bradford completed 72 percent of his passes for a career-high 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns with five interceptions.

Since the end of OTAs, he’s kept up individual workouts, simulating quarterback moves as he works to further strengthen his knee. Bradford understands that injuries come with his line of work.

”They happen. It’s football,” he said. ”That’s not really where my mind is. It’s not something I think about. My mindset is just going out to practice every day, learning as much about this offense as I can, being a good teammate, being a good leader, being as good a quarterback as I can be.”
