Bradford's Knee Surgery Set for TuesdayST. LOUIS (AP) - 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.
