St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is out for the 2014 season after an MRI disclosed he tore the ACL in his left knee in Saturday night’s preseason game against the Browns, according to multiple sources.
The MRI confirmed that is the same injury that sidelined Bradford in the middle of last season.
ESPN reports on the Sam Bradford injury:
“Bradford took what appeared to be a light hit from Cleveland’s Armonty Bryant as he threw incomplete to tight end Jared Cook. Sam Bradford shrugged Bryant off, but the defensive lineman made contact with the quarterback’s left knee.
Sam Bradford fell to the ground in pain as Rams doctors and trainers rushed to his side. He limped off the field under his own power but favoring the left leg as he went to the locker room for further examination.
Bradford was making his second start of the preseason after returning from a season-ending torn left ACL suffered against Carolina on Oct. 20, 2013. Sam Bradford went 4 of 9 for 77 yards before leaving.”
Rams coach Jeff Fisher is expected to confirm the news of Sam Bradford at his 5 p.m. CT news conference after meeting with his staff.
