Bradford surgery postponed due to swelling

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have postponed quarterback Sam Bradford's knee surgery, which had been scheduled for Tuesday, due to swelling.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday no new date has been set for the procedure to repair a torn left ACL, but anticipated it would be soon. The team previously announced the surgery would be done by Dr. James Andrews, who also operated on the quarterback's shoulder at Oklahoma.

Bradford has been exercising to strengthen the knee and quadriceps prior to surgery. He's also been on his feet a lot at practice and on game days.

Backup Kellen Clemens makes his third straight start Sunday at Indianapolis.
