Rams Lose Sam Bradford For 2014 Season

The St. Louis Rams will be without their starting quarterback Sam Bradford for the entire 2014 NFL season. Bradford tore his ACL in his left knee Saturday night against the Cleveland Browns.

The Rams will now turn to 34 year old Shaun Hill. Hill has been a backup his entire career and has only seen playing time in 4 games over the past 3 seasons.

With Hill under center, the team will likely rely heavily on Zac Stacy, which should move him up in ADP. Also rookie Tre Mason out of Auburn should see extended playing time as well. Benjamin Cunningham and Isaiah Pead could compete for carries too.

Don't expect much out of Tavon Austin, Austin Pettis, Chris Givens or Kenny Britt in the passing game.

Bradford was the #1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, and this will be the third time he will be forced to miss a majority of the season.

In 2011 Bradford missed 6 games with lower body injuries and the Rams would finish 2-14. Then during last season, Bradford tore his ACL in week 7 and was forced to miss the remainder of the season.

So through his first 5 NFL seasons, Bradford will only have played in 49 of a possible 80 games. Sad to say, but I think we can officially tag Bradford as a bust.
