Any time a player has been hauled off on a cart, it’s rare that it’s good news.

But the early indications on Rams quarterback Sam Bradford are not good.

The Rams said after their 30-15 loss at the Panthers that Bradford suffered a left knee injury and would be further evaluated upon his return to St. Louis tonight.

He was in significant pain on the sideline,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said.

Bradford was pushed out of bounds by Panthers safety Mike Mitchell, but both players were in bounds at the time of contact. Bradford landed awkwardly, and was then hauled to the locker room.

Kellen Clemens finished the game, and is the only other quarterback on the roster at the moment.
