Rams hold their breath after Bradford injury

CLEVELAND – Not again.

A St. Louis Rams fan's worst nightmare flashed anew when fifth-year quarterback Sam Bradford walked gingerly to the locker room after Browns defensive end Armonty Bryant rolled up on his surgically-repaired left knee on the team's opening series.

The first overall pick of the 2010 draft suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 7 last year and was looking sharp on Saturday, moving the offense with crisp passing on the game-opening drive.

But a Rams offseason that has raised high hopes is now hanging on the MRI results on Bradford's left knee.

Bradford is the last of the high-priced first-overall picks, having received $50 million guaranteed before the new collective bargaining agreement ushered in a rookie salary cap.

Journeyman Shaun Hill is the fallback plan since last year's backup Kellen Clemens is now in San Diego.
