Rams QB Sam Bradford out for the Season, Team Needs Backup

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is out for the season after the team says an MRI confirmed he has a torn ACL.

Bradford was 21-of-30 for 255 yards on Sunday when he was pushed out of bounds by Carolina Panthers safety Mike Mitchell late in the fourth quarter. Bradford landed awkwardly on his knee.

The team announced that Bradford was out for the season in a tweet Monday morning. For now, the Rams will have to scrape by with only one QB. Kellen Clemens, the team’s backup, is now the presumptive starter, and the team will have to sign a back-up.

Web chatter puts Tim Tebow in the mix, but these reports are unconfirmed by the team.

Bradford was the No. 1 overall draft pick out of Oklahoma in 2010. He is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and was one of few persons of Cherokee descent to start at quarterback for a Division 1 university. According to a New York Times article, Sonny Sixkiller, who played for University of Washington from 1970-1972, and Greg Maddox, a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, started at James Madison from 1996-1998, came before Bradford.
