Rams QB Sam Bradford Tears ACL, Will Miss Entire 2014 Season
Life isn’t easy for Sam Bradford. Well, it may be a little easy considering the $50 million he was guaranteed in his rookie contract. But, in terms of his football production, life isn’t easy.
In the first quarter of the Rams’ third preseason game, Bradford limped off the field with what appeared to be a minor injury. Rams head coach Jeff Fisher stressed it was probably just a hyperextension. On Sunday, August 24th, medical testing revealed that Bradford actually tore his ACL, the same ACL that cut short his 2013 season. Bradford will miss the entire 2014 season.
The Rams have desperately trying to build their team around Bradford, trading up to the 8th overall selection in 2013 for slot receiver Tavon Austin and spending their 2nd overall pick on offensive tackle Greg Robinson. St. Louis will hope those pieces may be able to help Shaun Hill, who suddenly just became the team’s starting quarterback.
Hill hasn’t made a start since 2010, when he filled in for an injured Matthew Stafford and led the Lions to a 3 – 7 record while he was the signal caller. Thankfully, Hill will be able to lean on a potent running attack, featuring 2nd year player Zac Stacy coming off a promising rookie campaign and the highly-touted rookie Tre Mason.
Despite their strength at running back, Bradford’s injury is a terrible setback for the Rams. It may be a long season for St. Louis.
