St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford Out for the Season

The St. Louis Rams have confirmed that starting quarterback Sam Bradford will miss the rest of the 2014 season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee during Saturday’s preseason game against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. “Unfortunately, I can confirm that we have lost Sam for the year,” said St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher in a press conference on Sunday. “Sam suffered an injury to the reconstructed knee that he had done less than a year ago.” In fact, an ACL tear in the same knee cut Bradford’s season short last year. “We’re thinking of Sam, I met with him this morning,” noted Fisher. “He’s left the building to spend time with his parents, and I really can’t give you any timetable as to when he’s going to have this procedure done.” While Bradford’s torn ACL was by far the most significant injury of the game, the Rams had a total of five starters come out of the game in the first half and not return. Despite what Fisher characterized as a “nightmare” of a first half, the Rams still managed to beat the Browns, 33-14. Are you ready to show your support for the St. Louis Rams?

Fortunately, as noted by Fisher, at least three of the players who were injured in Saturday’s game have a possibility of returning in time to play in Thursday’s game against the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium. “Michael Brockers, Kendall Langford, and Rodger Saffold can potentially play this Thursday night in the fourth preseason game at Miami,” said Fisher. Cornerback Trumaine Johnson, who sustained an MCL sprain in the game against the Browns, will be out for approximately four to six weeks. While the loss of a starting quarterback is always a blow to a team, Fisher emphasized that the Rams were prepared to move on with backup quarterback Shaun Hill. “Shaun’s our guy -- we brought him here -- he’s got experience and we’ve got all the confidence in the world in him,” stated Fisher. “We have around our quarterback position right now probably as good of talent as we’ve had since we came here. And Shaun’s excited about that, and I know he’ll benefit from that.” After the St. Louis Rams face the Miami Dolphins this Thursday, the team will return home to kick off their regular season against the Minnesota Vikings at Edward Jones Dome on Sunday, September 7.
