According to Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Long underwent knee surgery on Thursday:

Quarterback Sam Bradford will soon have some company in the trainer’s room at Rams Park. Offensive tackle Jake Long underwent surgery recently to repair a knee injury he suffered in the Rams’ second-to-last game of the regular season — the team’s 23-13 home victory over Tampa Bay on Dec. 22.


On the Rams’ third offensive play of that game, Long’s right knee buckled while pass-blocking and tests later revealed that Long had a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) as well as a torn medial collateral ligament (MCL).
