(FootballStL) – The fact that the St. Louis Rams won their third preseason game, the story of the night is the five Rams players who were injured in the first half against the Cleveland Browns – most notably quarterback Sam Bradford – who re-injured his surgically repaired left knee.
Offensive lineman Roger Saffold, defensive linemen Kendall Langford and Michael Brockers and corner back Trumaine Johnson were all attended to by the Rams training staff. Brockers and Johnson were injured on the same play, but Johnson was carted off the field while Brockers left the field on his own.
Saffold and Langford both sustained ankle injuries, but Langford did re-enter the game. Following the game, Jeff Fisher said he did not have any updates on any of the players injured.

Jake Long played in his first preseason game and had a rough first drive drawing two penalties and getting beat by Amonty Bryant who put the hit on Bradford that ended his night.
“Jake played more than we expected because he wanted to play more,” Fisher said.
Other highlights for the Rams includes the play of third string quarterback Austin Davis and the two sacks from Michael Sam.
Davis went 14/22 for 198 yards and two touchdowns throwing the TDs to Chris Givens and Brian Quick.
“I think we accomplished what we needed to accomplish tonight,” Fisher added.
Sam, who is considered to be fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster, sacked Browns’ back-up signal caller Johnny Manziel twice. After the first sack, Sam mocked Manziel using his “money, money” move.
The Rams will play their final preseason game Thursday against the Miami Dolphins.
