NFL: Preseason-St. Louis Rams at Cleveland Browns

Sam Bradford leaves game with knee injury

St Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford missed the final nine games of the 2013 season with a torn ACL in his left knee. After having surgery to repair the damage, expectations were high and 2014 was shaping up to be a potential bounce-back year.

He played in his second preseason game this season in Saturday night’s matchup with the Cleveland Browns, but appeared to hurt his surgically-repaired knee in the first quarter after being hit and wrapped up by DT Armonty Bryant.

After staying down for several minutes, he then walked off on his own power and was checked by medical personnel behind the Rams’ bench, according to

Conflicting reports are currently being circulated, and we likely won’t receive any definitive updates until further tests are performed on Sunday.

Bradford had completed 4 of 9 passes for 77 yards before leaving the game. He was replaced by Shaun Hill.
