St. Louis Rams lose Sam Bradford, Steven Jackson, Danny Amendola and others in opening week nightmare

The St. Louis Rams are having a nightmare of a season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles’ "Dream Team." After losing running back Steven Jackson in the first quarter, the Rams lost QB Sam Bradford in the fourth with a finger injury on his throwing hand. They also lost their leading receiver from the season before, Danny Amendolawith a dislocated elbow. Amendola might be done for the season, according to the Rams’ official Twitter feed.

Bradford hit his hand on a helmet on the follow through of a 31-yard deep pass to Brandon Gibson. He left the field for the locker room immediately thereafter to have an x-ray on his finger.

Danny Amendola’s status for the season is doubt now as the team awaits more information about his dislocated left elbow. He left the game with 5 catches on the day, the second-most of any Rams player.

Those were not the only injuries for the Rams. CB Ron Bartell left the game early along with RT Jason Smith. Smith was having a terrible game against the Eagles defensive front, leading some to wonder if his exit from the game was really and truly an injury situation. 

UPDATE: According to Bernie Miklasz, Bradford does not have a broken right index finger. He does have numbness and will get an MRI next. He could be dealing with a "nerve issue" in the finger.
