EARLIER: Conflicting reports have emerged regarding the extent of quarterback Sam Bradford’s knee injury. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the St. Louis Rams quarterback may have torn his ACL. That report comes in light of initial news stating the Rams’ optimism regarding Bradford, who hurt his knee during Saturday’s preseason matchup against the Browns.
However, according to the NFL Network’s Albert Breer and Ian Rapoport, St. Louis is still unsure of the severity of the injury and is currently conducting more tests.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher is set to address the media later this evening.
Bradford tore his ACL in 2013, causing him to miss the remainder of the season.
