Bradford wearing cast again
Tuesday was a busy day in the middle of a busy week for the Bradford family. Tuesday morning, Sam Bradford
was honored at a ceremony in the morning by Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett
, who declared Jan. 13 "Sam Bradford Day.”
Sam was spotted wearing the cast again on his injured left thumb, after he wore just a splint preparing for and during the BCS National Championship.
But Bradford’s father, Kent Bradford
, said the plan was always for Sam to wear the cast again for about a month after the title game as he recovers from torn ligaments.
