Yesterday, the St. Louis Rams lost Sam Bradford for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. And while some question whether Bradford can return to form after his second torn ACL dating back to his collegiate days, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has said that Bradford is his quarterback in 2014.

Right now, Fisher will have to stick with Kellen Clemens, who is the only quarterback left on the roster. And while a backup will be added, Fisher was bluntly when he said, “he [Bradford] will be back [in 2014] and he’s our quarterback.”

“The knee itself is in really good shape, with the exception of the ACL,” Fisher added. “We expect a full and complete recovery.”

Bradford will have to wait 2-3 weeks before undergoing surgery, as his ACL is presently swelling. Once he has the surgery, he will have to wait nearly a month or so, before he is able to start the rehab process back.

Bradford should be back for the season opener next season, but he should not rush it. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III rushed back from a torn ACL and LCL injury to struggle out of the games.

The Rams are going to make sure that what happened to Griffin does not happen to the former 2009 1st overall draft pick. He was fifth in the NFL with 14 touchdown passes and had a 90.9 quarterback rating before his gruesome injury.

The Rams have never made the playoffs under Bradford. And they could release Bradford and save $10 million dollars, but it seems like it from Fisher’s comments that Bradford is going to be their long-term quarterback.

With Bradford out, the Rams are expected to struggle once again, and could pick in the Top five once again. The last time the team had a Top 5 pick was when they traded the second overall pick to the Redskins for several picks, which the Redskins used the second pick to draft RGIII.
