St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is out for the 2014 season. He tore the ACL in his left knee during a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. Shaun Hill replaced Bradford.
This isn’t the first time Bradford has had the injury—he was sidelined in the middle of last season for the same thing. Coach Jeff Fisher told ESPN: “Anyone that’s gone through that procedure and the rehab understands and to have it happen again within the calendar year is very, very difficult.” Bradford knows what it takes to come back. He’s one of the great natural talents in football, and he’s no stranger to hard work. He won the Heisman Trophy as a sophomore at Oklahoma and completed 169 passes without an interception as a Rams rookie.
