St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford suffered a season ending ACL injury in the loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. That forced back up Kellen Clemens into the line up and had some media speculating this could mark the beginning of the end of the Sam Bradford era in St. Louis.
“There’s no reason to think otherwise,” Fisher said when asked if he’d be ready for the start of the 2014 season.
Fisher also added that Bradford will undergo surgery in 2-3 weeks when the swelling dies down. The Rams can’t ride out the rest of the season with just one quarterback on the roster though. They need to add another whether that is someone that they think can start or someone to fill in behind Clemens.
“We have a process in place and we’re going through that process right now,” Fisher said.
It looks like they’re content on finding a back up and the pool they’ll decide from is the free agents available.

As of now, Clemens will start on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
“He prepares himself. He has a really good understanding of this offense. He’s going to run around and make plays,” Fisher said about Clemens.
