St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has struggled with injury problems since entering the National Football League. The former Oklahoma Sooner suffered another major setback Saturday night.
The Oklahoma City native returned to the Rams after missing parts of the 2013 NFL season. His return was cut short, however, when he tore his ACL in a Saturday night exhibition against the Cleveland Browns.
Bradford walked off the field on his own power. On Sunday, an MRI revealed Bradford tore his ACL and would be out for the entire 2014 season.
The Rams will now rely on back-up quarterback Shaun Hill. Hill is a 13 year veteran and has played with the Minnesota Vikings, San Francisco 49ers, and Detroit Lions.
Bradford left St. Louis’ preseason contest against Cleveland with 77 passing yards and completed 4-of-9 passes.
The 2008 Heisman Trophy winner hasn’t had the easiest time while playing in the pros. Bradford’s injury problems do not bode well for the young quarterback.
Sam Bradford hasn’t had the best luck with St. Louis and has yet to make the playoffs with the team. Although, if the Rams choose to go a different route a quarterback, Bradford may have the opportunity join a different franchise.
From the entire staff, we wish Bradford the best of luck. A player with his talent doesn’t deserve to stay on the sidelines.
