Quarterback Sam Bradford had an MRI Sunday night that showed he tore his ACL in his left knee. Bradford will be out for the remainder of the season.
The Rams lost Bradford to the injury late in the fourth quarter, and lost the game to the Panthers by a score of 30-15. According to ESPN, Bradford was scrambling towards the sideline when safety Mike Mitchell forced him out of bounds. Bradford landed on his knee the wrong way when he fell, causing the injury.
CBS Sports reports that although it was a clean play, Rams guard Harvey Dahl retaliated when he saw his quarterback go down, pushing Mitchell during his celebration. Bradford was then carted off the field.
Bradford was 21 of 30 for 255 yards and a touchdown before being replaced by backup Kellen Clemens.
"I'm not going to deal with hypotheticals right now until I find out what really is going on with him," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said after the game. "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."
Clemens is the only quarterback left on the Rams roster and was asked about the situation after the game.
"I think we're all talking about 'ifs' right now," Clemens said. "Obviously, if called upon this week after a week of practice and an opportunity to work with the guys, we'll be ready to go."
