After losing starting quarterback Sam Bradford to injury, the St. Louis Rams even called Brett Favre, per league sources. After the team lost Bradford to a season-ending knee injury, St. Louis called Brett Favre on Sunday night, asking whether the 44-year-old retired quarterback, who is now a grandfather, would be willing to leave his farm to plow through the back half of the Rams' schedule, league sources said.

ST. LOUIS — St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford will miss the rest of the season because of a torn knee ligament.
The Rams said Monday the extent of the injury to Bradford's left knee was confirmed after an MRI exam.
Bradford tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 30-15 loss to the Carolina Panthers when he landed on his knee after being shoved out of bounds by Panthers safety Mike Mitchell. Kellen Clemens replaced Bradford, who has thrown for 1,687 yards with 14 touchdowns and four interceptions this season.
