St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford will undergo surgery next Tuesday to repair a torn left knee ligament. He expects to be ready for the opener next season.
The surgery will be done by Dr. James Andrews, who also did Bradford's shoulder surgery when he was at Oklahoma.
Bradford said the rest of the knee is intact and that it was a clean tear.
Bradford was injured on a scramble in the second half of a loss at Carolina in Week 7. Backup Kellen Clemens will make his second straight start this week against Tennessee.

But the quarterback has been around his teammates plenty in the week and a half since, basically doing whatever possible while also preparing for his upcoming surgery.

Kellen Clemens played a trick on the St. Louis Rams’ coaching staff and he certainly wasn’t a treat for the Rams’ fans in his first week of service. In a 9-14 game, the Rams can’t blame the defense for this loss. The blame squarely rests upon the shoulders of the starting quarterback.

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has made it clear that they’re sticking with Kellen Clemens as their starter.
“Yeah, we’re good,” Fisher said via ESPN.com. “He’s a little sore. I don’t know if he’ll do much (Wednesday) but he’ll be fine. I think he only stands to improve.”
Fisher doesn’t have a choice. He has to stick with the quarterback that gives his...
Early in the fourth quarter of the Monday Night barnburner between the Rams and the Seahawks—won 14-9 by Seattle—St. Louis WR Tavon Austin got bumped by a Hawks defender whilst tripping over his own teammate, which led to the rookie performing a dive so European soccer-esque that it had many folks looking for a yellow card from the ref…

ST. LOUIS -- Robert Quinn knows these opportunities don't come along often.
The St. Louis Rams hosted the Seattle Seahawks at the Edward Jones Dome on Monday in their first Monday Night Football matchup in nearly three years, and Quinn and his defensive teammates seized the chance to strut their stuff.

Although they have three wins, the St. Louis Rams are one of the worst teams in football, and despite what some may consider a moral victory over the far superior Seattle Seahawks, the Rams are still struggling to remain competitive.
The single biggest problem ailing the Rams continues to be a lackluster offensive attack. Their defense has given them the opportunity to win some...
It's back to the Q&A grind this week, as Will of Rams Herd, Bloguin's St. Louis Rams blog, stops by to answer a few questions about this week's big matchup at the Edward Jones Dome against Cortland Finnegan, Jared Cook, William Hayes, some Rams players who did not in fact ever play for the Titans, and, oh yes, Jeff Fisher's mustache.

Zac Stacy provided a much needed burst to the St. Louis Rams offense on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks. Stacy turned in the first 100-yard performance for the Rams of the season as he rushed for 134 yards on 26 carries against a very stingy Seattle defense. It was just the second 100-yard runner allowed by the Seahawks this season, the other coming in week four when Houston...
Sometimes making the adjustment from college to the NFL seems easy. Other times, its pretty difficult and take a couple years. Rams WR and return man Tavon Austin says that his transition has been harder than he expected:
“This isn’t supposed to be easy,” he said. “Maybe it was a little harder than I thought at first. But all I can do is keep working.”
“It’s all about...

Too bad the St. Louis Rams' defensive ends couldn't celebrate after the game, too.

Only by the grace of an inept Rams passing game were the Seahawks able to muster a win Monday night. Ironically, the very same St. Louis offense that ran all over Seattle most of the evening settled for a Kellen Clemens pass attempt on 4th-and-1 with four seconds left in the game and trailing 14-9. Predictably, the ball fell incomplete. Thanks for coming, game over.
Despite the win...
For a split second, you may have thought that St Louis Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin was seriously hurt. His limbs were stretched out in awkward positions. ****, he may be dead.
