   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.

   Almost before any work has begun, the renovation of the Gateway Arch grounds may have run into a four-month delay.  

   The $380 million plan was presented Wednesday to a National Park Service board that must approve the project.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the federal Development Advisory Board, refused to sign off on the plan because of what is essentially, a paperwork issue.  

   CityArchRiver 2015, the non-profit that's spearheading the renovation efforts refused to provide a series of agreements between it and the park service.  CityArchRiver leaders say that's because the park hasn't signed a new deal with Metro to run the Arch trams, and thus guarantee that tram fees will be used to pay for much needed repairs to the tram systems.  

   Those contracts are reportedly in the pipeline and could be signed as soon as Thursday.  But the Development Advisory Board doesn't meet again until March.

You might remember Trooper--the dog who was nearly killed after being dragged for nearly a mile down Interstate 55 almost a year ago.

Trooper was injured after Benetta Johnson tried to return then six-month old Trooper to her estranged husband by tying the dog to the bumper of her husband's truck. He did not notice the dog and dragged the puppy down I-55, until a fellow motorist notice Trooper and got him to pull over. Johnson was convicted on misdemeanor animal abuse charges and ordered to perform community service, take animal care classes, and make a donation to the Humane Society. 

You can apply to adopt Trooper at: www.hsmo.org/adopttrooper.

Applicants must answer lifestyle questions and provide information about their home environment. Trooper is best suited to a home without other animals and with older children. He will be a good fit for an adopter who understands how to lovingly manage intelligent, strong dogs and has time to spend further training him and providing appropriate exercise. A secure outside area is also a necessity.

Authorities found the family's wrecked and burned vehicle Saturday in a remote area southwest of Jackson. Authorities say after questioning Timothy Lydell Burns, he led them to the bodies of a couple and a 7-year-old boy. They were in an abandoned house about a mile from the vehicle.

Burns was ordered held without bond Wednesday and attorney M.A. Bass was appointed to represent Burns. Bass could not immediately be reached for comment.

Burns was charged with two counts of murder and vehicle arson. Authorities say the third murder charge will likely come out of nearby Hinds County, where authorities think Laterry Smith, the boy's stepfather, was killed.
