ST. LOUIS -- All of those months of injury rehab paid off for Sam Bradford, who showed no sign of a season-ending knee injury last November.
"It was nothing new, I've been here before," Bradford said. "I think for everyone else it's probably a bigger deal for me to get back out on the field."
Sam, the seventh-round pick is the first openly gay player drafted in the NFL, is likely competing with undrafted Ethan Westbrooks for a backup spot.
Westbrooks was the second-team left defensive end behind Chris Long and had a sack with four total tackles, while Sam got work at both defensive end spots.
"The offense got off to a great start," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I really liked the production that we were able to get done in the first two series."
Scott Tolzien was 10 for 15 for 107 yards behind Rodgers and Matt Flynn, who started the opener, was effective as the third quarterback. Flynn threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to rookie Jeff Janis, a seventh-round pick, and added a 2-point conversion pass to Davante Adams that made it 18-7 late in the third.
Notes: Rams backup RB Isaiah Pead's left knee buckled at the end of a 33-yard kickoff return in the first quarter. He was helped off the field and then carted away for tests. ... Rams OL Greg Robinson, the second overall pick, started at left tackle and also got work at guard as in the preseason opener.
