St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford was what in many believed to be a make or break year, but it came to an abrupt end a couple of weeks ago when he went down with a torn ACL during the team’s loss to the Carolina Panthers on the road.
Bradford has been waiting to undergo the knife to surgically repair his injured knee, and it looks like a date and surgeon are finally set.
The Rams made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday night:
Dr. James Andrews will perform surgery on Sam Bradford's torn ACL next Tuesday.

The surgery was delayed because those who suffer ACL injuries must wait for swelling to go down in the injured knee.
Bradford will be getting operated on by one of the best in the world and the same man who performed ACL surgery on Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson and Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
In the meantime, the Rams will continue to roll with Kellen Clemens at quarterback.
If the Rams end up with a high pick in next year’s draft, they will seriously need to consider whether to stick with Bradford coming off of a torn ACL moving forward or to draft a young, talented signal caller who could take the team to the next level.
