St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford injured his surgically repaired left knee and limped off the field during the first quarter of Saturday night's preseason game against the Browns in Cleveland.

There was no immediate word from the team on the severity of the injury, but ESPN reported that early tests showed no damage to the same knee that underwent surgery for a torn ACL last season.

An MRI is planned by Sunday to assess the condition of the knee, according to reports.

Bradford was hurt with 8:19 left in the opening quarter when Browns defensive lineman Armonty Bryant contacted the quarterback after he released a pass.

After Bradford fell to the turf, Rams medical personnel and trainers hurried onto the field and then helped him to the locker room. Rams coach Jeff Fisher also came on the field to check on Bradford's condition before Bradford limped off favoring the knee.

Bradford, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, completed 4 of 9 passes for 77 yards. Shaun Hill replaced Bradford.
