According to a source for NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk, St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford’s knee injury suffered against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday is as bad as expected. The team captain has reportedly suffered a torn ACL and will presumably be out for the season.

Bradford had completed 21-of-30 passes for 255 yards, a touchdown and an interception before being carted off the field in the Rams’ 30-15 loss to the Panthers. He was replaced by Kellen Clemens, who completed 2-of-4 passes for 19 yards.
The Rams now sit at 3-4 on the season, with a quarterbacking situation that is very much in flux.
Bradford, who is in his fourth year in the league, has thrown for 1,432 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions in 2013, for a passer rating of 90.7.
