The 26-year-old Bradford suffered the wound in a loss to the Carolina Panthers on October 20.
Bradford, who was expected to have surgery two weeks ago, will start for St. Louis in 2014.
Owed approximately $27 million through the end of the 2015 season, the 2010 AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year declined to renegotiate his contract shortly before getting injured.
The 6-foot-4, 225 pound Bradford had tossed 14 scores, against four interceptions, for 1,687 yards over seven games.
Often criticized for lacking accuracy in the pocket, the former Sooner also completed an impressive 60.7% of his 262 attempts.
Despite departing with St. Louis in the basement of the NFC West at 3-4, Bradford mainly thrived operating in a four-wide package designed by coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.
Unfortunately for the Rams, their defense had been floundering and was ranked 24th in the league when Bradford fell.
Les Snead did a solid job assembling offensive weapons and the young general manager now needs to focus on acquiring talent on the other side of the ball.
Provided a healthy Sam Bradford resurfaces, a diversified Rams squad could soon become a force in “The Show Me State.”by
