St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford will miss the season after an MRI revealed he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Saturday's exhibition game against Cleveland.

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher confirmed the news during a Sunday press conference.

It is the same injury that sidelined the former No. 1 overall draft pick for the Rams' final nine games last season.

"We lost our starting quarterback, but for Sam personally, it's devastating," Fisher said. "The news was devastating to him as you can appreciate. Anyone that's gone through that procedure and the rehab understands, and to have it happen again within the calendar year is very, very difficult."

Bradford went down on the game's opening drive after throwing an incomplete pass. He was pressured and hit high by Browns defensive lineman Armonty Bryant.

"It wasn't a high impact. ACL injuries, they're all different. This was just kind of a hyperextension and you just had impact come from the outside," Fisher said. "The knee was locked and something has to give, and unfortunately the ACL gave."

Bradford completed 4-of-9 passes for 77 yards before departing.

Shaun Hill is now the Rams' starting quarterback.

"We move forward as a football team. Shaun is our guy," Fisher added. "We brought him here. He's got experience. We've got all the confidence in the world in him."

Hill, 34, last started a game for Detroit during the 2010 season.

Fisher also said that cornerback Trumaine Johnson will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks with an MCL sprain.
