ST. LOUIS, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the NFL season, the team said Monday.
Bradford, 25, in his fourth NFL season, was injured Sunday during the Rams' loss to Carolina. Subsequent examinations Monday confirmed the ligament damage, the team said.
Bradford was pushed out of bounds on a fourth quarter play and was able to walk off the field but was later taken to the locker room on a cart.
He completed 159-of-262 passes for 1,687 yards and 14 touchdowns this season. He's also been intercepted four times.
The Rams made Bradford the No. 1 overall draft choice in 2010 and he's been the team's starting quarterback since. In 49 NFL games, Bradford is 1,032-of-1,760 passing for 11,065 yards and 59 touchdowns.
The Rams have just two quarterbacks on their roster -- Bradford and Kellen Clemens, who has started 12 games in his eight-season NFL career.
