Sam Bradford QB PHI 7 Months

Despite initial optimism regarding the left knee injury that Bradford suffered in Saturday's preseason game, ESPN's Adam Schefter suggests that there are now fears that the quarterback may have sustained a torn ACL.

Coach Jeff Fisher is slated to address the media later Sunday, so there should be some additional follow-up on Bradford's status as the day progresses, but the situation is clearly concerning. In the event that Bradford is forced to miss extended time, Shaun Hill would be next in line for the team's QB snaps, though it's also possible that the Rams could consider dealing for another signal-caller in such a scenario.

Bradford (knee) is optimistic about being able to make a quick return following an injury scare that forced him out of Saturday's preseason game versus the Browns, reports.

Bradford exited Saturday's contest after taking a hit on his surgically repaired left knee, but initial tests thankfully revealed no ACL damage. While the Rams' signal-caller was seen limping to the team's locker room, Bradford is reportedly walking normally now. Nonetheless, St. Louis' medical staff will still conduct a battery of tests to thoroughly evaluate the condition of Bradford's knee. Despite coach Jeff Fisher indicating the incident may have been just some sort of hyperextension, more definitive news should surface Sunday to project Bradford's status ahead of the regular season.

Removed from Saturday's preseason tilt in Cleveland after taking a hit, Bradford displayed an evident limp before heading to the locker room.

Bradford left Saturday's preseason outing at Cleveland due to a knee injury and won't return, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1 reports.

Bradford left Saturday's preseason game in Cleveland due to a leg injury, Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reports.

Bradford walked off the field with an evident limp and immediately headed to the locker room. The injury is especially worrisome due to the torn left ACL that ended his 2013 campaign prematurely. The extent of the ailment should be known in the near future, and if he misses any time, Shaun Hill will helm the Rams' offense.

Bradford completed 9-of-12 passes for 101 yards and one touchdown during Saturday's preseason defeat to the Packers.

Making his first appearance since tearing the ACL in his left knee in Week 7 last year, Bradford cobbled together two lengthy drives, the latter of which resulted in an 11-yard score to Lance Kendricks. The strike threaded the needle and is representative of the investment made in Bradford as the No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft. The third preseason game customarily includes the starters' most significant run, so expect him to play up to a half next Saturday in Cleveland.

Bradford is expected to play at least one quarter in Saturday's preseason game against the Packers, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Although Bradford has been a full-go in training camp, the Rams opted to hold him out of their first exhibition against the Saints last week as a way to manage the workload on his surgically repaired knee.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Sam Bradford (knee) is full-go for the start of training camp.

"Sam is in great shape," Fisher said. "He's ready to go. We don't have (reservations) - right now as we speak, as camp starts - he's full-go. If we need to back him down here and there, we'll back him down." Bradford tore his ACL in Week 7 and participated in spring practices. Fisher added the Rams may hold him out of the preseason opener as a precaution, but he will get some exhibition work. He's entering the summer as a back-end QB2.
