Initially reports said that the St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford escaped major injury on Saturday. Now, ESPN’s top two NFL insiders Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen are going against those initial reports.
Schefter and Mortensen are close with Rams head coach Jeff Fisher., and from talking with each, each are reporting that there are concern over Bradford’s injury.
The often-injured signal-caller reportedly has his ligament intact. However, both are reporting there’s “real concern that it is now.”
If it is another ACL injury, Bradford will be lost for the season. He was hit on his previously injured knee last night.
The last time he tore his ACL, the Rams struggled as Bradford had to watch from the sidelines for the entire season. With more tests being done today, the Rams will know if they will be forced to go with Shaun Hill as it’s starting quarterback.
If Hill is named the starter, the Rams will rely on the running game even more.
