Sam Bradford's ACL fine, Rams coach optimistic about quick return

Sunday August 24th, 2014

St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher is feeling optimistic about Sam Bradford's injury, reports Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Rams quarterback hurt his knee after taking a hit from Browns defensive lineman Amonty Bryant during the first quarter of Saturday's game against Cleveland. 

“It appeared just to be a hyper-extension of the same knee," said Fisher, in reference to the ACL Bradford tore during the 2013 season. "He was walking around fine inside right now, so I can tell you.”

Added receiver Brian Quick,“I was a little nervous about it, but everything is all right. Sam told me that he is OK.”

Bradford will undergo tests on Sunday.
