  • Report Vikings to activate Bridgewater mulling over sending Bradford to IR

He told reporters he felt "confident" in his knee after that first practice and said "definitely believe [s]" he will play this season. He spent a whole bunch of his own money, trying everything, and it just didn't work out.

The Vikings acquired Bradford via trade on September 3, 2016, and he suited up in Purple for the first time against Green Bay in Week 2.

It clears a spot for Teddy Bridgewater (knee) to be activated from the PUP list on Wednesday.

The Vikings have a third quarterback on the roster, rookie Kyle Sloter, whom they didn't want to risk waiving to put on the practice squad out of fear another team might claim him.

The Vikings play the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on Sunday.

Fears up to 27 killed in Texas church shooting
President Donald Trump has tweeted from Japan that he is monitoring the situation in Texas following a mass shooting at a church. The Wilson County News quoted Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackett on the casualties and that the shooter was now dead.


Bradford, who has missed six of the past seven games, would be done for the regular season if placed on injured reserve.

He had an abbreviated start against Chicago October 9 but was extremely immobile and was devoured by the Bears pass rush. "We thought it was going to be a one-week deal, and then it was two, and then it was three, and now it's eight".

Zimmer said the procedure was not major, and Bradford's knee is "not bone on bone". Nothing else was working, and we just had to try something.

Bridgewater, still just 24 years old, was considered the franchise quarterback before his injury, but replacing Keenum with someone who has not played in nearly two years is a hard proposition, particularly for a team that is playing so well. Bridgewater is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the season. "So we just keep going from there and see how this thing plays out". The Vikings then traded for Bradford, who led the team to an 8-8 record during the 2016 season.
