After quarterback Sam Bradford won the Heisman Trophy at Oklahoma, his shoulder was injured not once, not twice, but three times, a triple whammy that marred his comeback to football and made his future in the game dicey.

He has since flourished as a rookie in the NFL, justifying the St. Louis Rams’ faith in making Bradford the No. 1 pick of the 2010 NFL draft and establishing himself as a virtual lock to be the league’s Offensive Rookie of the Year.

How did he manage such a spectacular turnaround? Well, Bradford acknowledged Wednesday, he essentially had two of the world’s greatest experts on his case: Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Drew Brees.
