Vikings might shut down Sam Bradford to make room for Teddy Bridgewater

Posted November 09, 2017

In his stay, backup quarterback Case Keenum has led the Vikings to a 6-2 start this season. He spent a whole bunch of his own money trying everything to get back and it just didn't work out. And Bridgewater, who hasn't played since suffering a torn ACL in August 2016, was elevated from the physically unable to perform list Wednesday, the last day the Vikings could do so.

Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, who is one game shy of the team record for consecutive games with a sack, did not practice Wednesday.

Enter Bridgewater, the 2014 first-round draft pick who was on track to take over as the franchise quarterback after passing for 3,231 yards, 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions while helping the Vikings win the NFC North in 2015.

- The Minnesota Vikings officially activated quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the 53-man roster Wednesday and placed Sam Bradford on injured reserved.

"It was just lingering", Zimmer said of Bradford's injury. Sources told ESPN that the Vikings expect Bridgewater to transition back to his starting role at some point this season.

Fantasy Impact Since Bradford underwent a knee scope on Tuesday, he will continue to be sidelined indefinitely. "We thought it was going to be a one-week deal, then it was two, then it was three, and then it was eight".

Bradford saw Andrews on September 22, but it was determined then that surgery was not needed.

Bradford becomes a free agent after the season. "So we just keep going from there and see how this thing plays out". "He's moved well, thrown the ball well".

"He hasn't had training camp", Zimmer said.

If this does indeed end up happening, Bradford's time with the Vikings organization is likely over.

He's listed with a foot injury and there was no word from the team about whether Griffen's at any risk of missing Sunday's game against Washington. "We're really lucky in that sense".
