Bradford Suffers Knee Injury; Signing Of Ex-Jet Said To Be Unlikely

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A quarterback on a struggling team is out with a serious knee injury — and that can only mean one thing.

Let the Tim Tebow talk begin.

St. Louis QB Sam Bradford went down in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 30-15 loss in Carolina. An MRI showed a season-ending tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, the Rams announced Monday.

Right on cue, Tebow has emerged as a remote candidate for the Rams, according to NFL Media writer Michael Silver. The franchise “has at least internally discussed the possibility,” reported, adding that a signing would be “highly unlikely.”

However, Jason La Canfora of reported that St. Louis has “no desire” to bring in Tebow.

The Rams only have backup Kellen Clemens behind Bradford on the roster.

The 26-year-old Tebow has received headline-grabbing offers from teams in the arena league and Russia, though to the dismay of some Jacksonville fans, he hasn’t sniffed the pros since his release from the New England Patriots prior to the season.

Denver traded Tebow to New York in March 2012. He was cut after one tumultuous season with the Jets.
