Rams going with Shaun Hill as starter with Sam Bradford hurt

Since St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, Shaun Hills is the new starter.

“Shaun’s our guy,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. “We brought him here. He’s got experience. We’ve got all the confidence in the world in him.”

Hill, 34, is heading into his 13th NFL season. He has passed for 6,381 career yards, 41 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.

“Shaun has a great feeling for the offense right now, and we’re gonna move forward with him,” Fisher said. “We’re not gonna change anything. He knows the system. Everybody knows, we’re gonna run the football first. And we’re gonna do that, and we gotta do that well, and we gotta do that to start the season. And then everything else will come off that. He’s very reliable."

Fisher said that the Rams haven't engaged in trade discussions for other quarterbacks.

“I heard that there’s speculation that we’ve been on the phone,” Fisher said. “That’s not true. It doesn’t mean to say that we won’t, but we haven’t done it at this point. We’ll get together as an organization and see. It makes no sense to jump and react right now and fill the hole at whatever cost.”
