Monday links: Seahawks won’t face Sam Bradford Monday

The Seahawks will return to the field a week from tonight in St. Louis, a game that figures to be a huge afterthought in that city as the baseball Cardinals will be on track to host Game 5 of the World Series that night.

It’s also a Rams’ team that figures to be severely depleted with the reported loss of quarterback Sam Bradford for the season to a torn ACL.

At the moment, the only other QB on the Rams’ roster — active or practice squad — is former Oregon standout Kellen Clemens.

If the Bradford reports are as advertised, the Rams will obviously be on the market for a QB or two (though one player they apparently will not be reaching out to is Tim Tebow).

The loss of Bradford, though, is the biggest blow in a season that has not gone as planned for a Rams’ team that is 3-4 and has been outscored 184-156, the most points allowed by any team in the NFC West, in a season in which St. Louis thought it had legit playoff hopes. The Rams lost 30-15 at Carolina Sunday.

Clemens is 4-8 all-time as a starter, 3-5 with the Jets in 2007, but has never played the Seahawks.

Here is everything on the Rams from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
