Sam Bradford out for the season with torn ACL

Sunday August 24th, 2014

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has a torn ACL in his left knee and will sit out the upcoming season. ESPN's Chris Mortensen first reported the news.

The Rams QB suffered the injury during Saturday's preseason matchup against the Browns. Bradford tore the ACL in the same knee in 2013, causing him to miss the remainder of the season.

"[This is] devastating for Sam," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said.

Bradford, the Heisman Trophy winner in 2008 at Oklahoma, was the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NFL draft. He has completed 58.6 percent of passes in his career.
