GAMEPLANNING FOR MINNESOTA
As is often the case with experienced coaching staffs, the Rams have an idea of what to expect from the Vikings this Sunday.
Although Minnesota did not show much in the preseason, Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer expects the Vikings to take on a similar approach to Head Coach Mike Zimmer’s previous teams.
“They’re not overly complicated,” Schottenheimer stated. “They’re going to do what they do. We have a good idea of what they’re going to do front-wise.”
“Physically, I actually feel great right now,” Bradford said. “Obviously mentally, it’s tough to put all the work into it and rehab and get back to full strength and then have it taken away in a preseason game. I’m not really sure I can describe what it feels like, but I’m just taking it one day at a time right now.”
Myles Simmons will have plenty more on Bradford’s plans moving forward and his role with the Rams this season in tomorrow’s Wake Up Sprinting.
- Earlier today, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson predicted he will score a touchdown on his first carry of the regular season against the Rams on Sunday.

“In the words of Bart Scott, ‘Can’t wait’,” Quinn said after practice. “He’s definitely a talented back, but he’s playing the Rams. I think we’ve got a great game plan. Guys are excited, revved up for the first game of the season at home. I think it’s going to be a good one.”

“It’s been a bit of an adjustment obviously getting Shaun up to speed, but wow, what a pro,” Schottenheimer said. “There’s not much he hasn’t seen when it comes to NFL football.”
“There’s really not much we were doing that he wasn’t comfortable with, so we’ll be status quo. It’s been good communication and I think he’s had a good week of practice.”
