St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford to have MRI on injured knee

St. Louis lost 30-15 on Sunday to the Carolina Panthers, and also may have lost quarterback Sam Bradford.

According to a report from ESPN.com’s Nick Wagoner, Bradford will undergo an MRI tonight after the team returns home from Carolina.

“I don’t have any information on Sam right now,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. “We’ve done X-rays, we’ll do an MRI tonight after we land.”

Bradford injured his left knee with 5:27 left in the 4th quarter.  St. Louis and coach Fisher fear the injury might be bad.

“I’m not going to deal with hypotheticals right now until I find out what really is going on with him,” Fisher said. “It makes no sense to rush to a conclusion until we know. We’ll get a medical and then we’ll go from there. He was in significant pain on the sideline.”

Bradford went 21 of 30 for 255 yards with a TD and pick in the game before going down with the injury.

St. Louis sits at 3-4 on the season following the loss and will face NFC West leader, the Seattle Seahawks, on Monday Night Football next week.

In 2013, Bradford has completed 138 of 232 passes for 1,432 yards with 13 TDs and just 3 INTs.

St. Louis will certainly miss the up-and-coming young QB if he is out for any extended period of time.

Long-time NFL backup and University of Oregon product Kellen Clemens served as the backup in Bradford’s absence.
