Source: Bradford to sit remainder of the season

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford will likely be shut down for the remainder of the season, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

After not missing a snap as a rookie, Bradford has been battled a left high ankle sprain since Week 6, an injury that has kept him out of three games and ineffective in the games he has played.

Bradford aggravated the injury in Monday night’s 30-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and was back wearing a protective boot later in the week. With A.J. Feeley out with a broken thumb, Kellen Clemens will start for the Rams today against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Even before his injury, the first overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft was struggling in his first season in Josh McDaniels’ offense. Bradford’s completion percentage has dropped from 60 percent to 53.5 percent and he’s been sacked 36 times in around 400 dropbacks, two more times than all of 2010, when the Rams ran over 600 pass plays.

In 10 starts, Bradford has passed for 2,164 yards (down from 3,512 in 2010) with six touchdowns and six interceptions.

Bradford is scheduled to earn a fully guaranteed $12 million base salary in 2012, the third year of his six-year, $78 million contract that included $50 million in guarantees.
