Rams QB Sam Bradford suffered a season ending ACL tear, which has left the team’s QB position – and in turn their entire season – in doubt.
In the aftermath of the season ending injury to starting QB Sam Bradford, the Rams appear to be ready to move forward with backup QB Shaun Hill.
“We move forward as a football team,” Fisher told the media on Monday. “Shaun’s our guy. We’ve brought him here, he’s got experience, we’ve got all the confidence in the world in him.”
Hill signed a one-year deal with the St. Louis Rams on March 26, 2014. He is 13-13 in starts with the 49ers and Rams from 2007 to 2010.
“It makes no sense to jump and react right now and try to fill the hole at whatever cost,” Fisher said. “We’re going to take our time and evaluate this. There’s going to be some quarterbacks that are released and there may or may not be some quarterbacks that have trade value.”
Rumors have been circulating that the Rams are inquiring about the availability of Eagles QB Mark Sanchez, who played with Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer with the New York Jets from 2009 to 2011. Sanchez went 27-20 in the regular season and went to two AFC Championship games in Schottenheimer’s offense.
“This team,” said Fisher, “is going to rally around Shaun, and we’re going to go play.”
