Sam Bradford's season with the Vikings possibly over

Adjust Comment Print

Keenum and the Vikings have won three straight games since the victory at Soldier Field.

With Teddy Bridgewater returning to the active roster Wednesday, I fully expect the team to shut Bradford down.

After being activated from the team's reserve/PUP list, Bridgewater wasn't even limited in his first practice back.

Keenum has already been announced the Vikings starter on Sunday against the Redskins, but moving forward it's possible Minnesota decides to hand the reigns back to Teddy Two-Gloves whenever he's ready to go.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Tuesday that Bradford had his left knee scoped by Dr. James Andrews with the hope of "easing pain and discomfort" the quarterback has experienced.

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. However, now into the second half of the regular season, the Vikings could elect to place him on the injured reserve list, officially ending his season.

In his stay, backup quarterback Case Keenum has led the Vikings to a 6-2 start this season. "The guy worked extremely hard to try to get back".

Bridgewater was a full participant in practice Wednesday and declined comment afterward. "Hopefully we'll be able to get him back when he gets healthy".

Zimmer said the procedure was not major, and Bradford's knee is "not bone on bone". Zimmer said Bridgewater at times has been rusty. "He's moved well, thrown the ball well".
