St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford was taken to the locker room in the first quarter of Saturday's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns with a knee injury.

Bradford took a late hit from defensive end Armonty Bryant. He beat left tackle Jake Long and hit Bradford. Bradford went down on the field, his face grimacing in pain after the play. Trainers and head coach Jeff Fisher came onto the field. He eventually walked off under his own power, but very gingerly.

The Rams are looking at his left knee. That's the same knee that Bradford injured last season against the Panthers, tearing the ACL. He had surgery to repair the ligament, returning in time for training camp. He played his first preseason game, his first game period October.

Bradford left the game four-for-nine with 77 yards. He continued his strong play from last week, forging a connection with Brian Quick. Kenny Britt added another catch for 36 yards on the same drive where Bradford was hurt.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

UPDATE: As noted by Daniel Doelling, Bradford took a hit on his left knee BEFORE the play when he got hit by Bryant.
