Rams Bradford, Bears Cutler headed for MRI’s


St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford, and Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler are both headed for MRI’s after suffering injuries in Week 7.

Bradford was shoved from behind as he was running out of bounds, Bradford immediately collapsed in pain, and could put no weight on his left leg. He was helped to a cart and then whisked to the locker room for x-rays. Coach Jeff Fisher said Sam Bradford was in “significant pain” following his fourth-quarter knee injury.

Bradford’s MRI will be performed to check for serious ligament damage. The Rams will turn to Kellen Clemens for the foreseeable future.

Cutler sustained a groin injury that took him out of the game. Cutler took a hard hit while being sacked by Skins NT Chris Baker. He appeared to clutch his hip, stayed down for a few moments and then walked off with a pretty good limp. Trainers then helped Cutler to the locker room as he walked under his own power for x-rays.

Two Bears sources tell  NFL Network that the injury “could be bad.”  The Bears are going into their BYE week, but have re-signed Jordan Palmer, which could mean the team already assumes the injury is serious.
