Rams QB Bradford out for season with knee injury

The optimism of Saturday night has turned into a Sunday afternoon nightmare for the Rams. Quarterback Sam Bradford does indeed have a torn ACL and is out for the season.

Bradford was injured in the first quarter of Saturday night’s 33-14 preseason victory over Cleveland when hit by Browns defensive end Amonty Bryant after releasing a pass to Jared Cook.

It turned out on Sunday when an MRI showed additional damage to the anterior cruciate ligament in Bradford’s left knee, the same knee that needed surgery for a torn ACL Oct. 20 at Carolina.
