St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is out for the 2014 season after an MRI disclosed he tore the ACL in his left knee in Saturday night’s preseason game against the Browns, according to multiple sources.

Initial reports suggested that tests did not show any damage and Jeff Fisher’s speculation that the knee was just hyperextended was.  However, Fisher is expected to confirm the news at a press conference today.

Bradford was hit by Cleveland’s Armonty Bryant.  The hit didn’t appear to be anything out of the norm, but Bradford fell to the ground in pain.  Doctors and trainers rushed out, but Bradford walked off under his own power.

This was just Bradford’s second start this preseason after returning from a season-ending torn left ACL.  He was injured against Carolina on Oct. 20, 2013.

The Rams beat the Browns 33-14.
