Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer ruled Bradford (knee) out for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Bradford didn't practice all week and doesn't seem likely to return before the Vikings' bye in Week 9. Case Keenum will pick up another start Sunday.
Bradford (knee) didn't take part in Friday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Bradford was unable to get in any practice time this week, so it's likely he'll miss a second game in a row. If that's indeed the case, Case Keenum would start at quarterback again in his stead.
Bradford (knee) was absent Thursday from the Vikings' practice. The Vikings haven't formally ruled Bradford out, but with the signal caller having failed to practice since aggravating his knee injury in the Oct. 9 game against the Bears, it appears to be a foregone conclusion that he'll miss Sunday's tilt with the Ravens. Case Keenum is on track to make his fifth start of the season Sunday while Kyle Sloter is slated to serve as his backup.
Bradford (knee) was held out of Wednesday's practice. After undergoing Regenokine treatment on his left knee in New York over the weekend, Bradford is back in Minnesota, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. That said, Bradford's potential to suit up this Sunday against the Ravens is murky. While Bradford sat out Wednesday, Teddy Bridgewater (knee) returned to practice for the first time since August 2016, opening his three-week window for activation from the Physically Unable to Perform list. At this point, Case Keenum appears to be the best bet to lead the offense in the short term, but Bridgewater's impending return, if it happens, would fog up the quarterback situation in Minnesota.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that Bradford (knee) is feeling better but won't necessarily be ready to practice Wednesday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. Bradford recently traveled to New York for Regenokine blood-spinning treatment, which is expected to take five or six days. Combining that information with a recent report that the quarterback's surgically repaired left knee could eventually lead him to consider an early retirement, it's hard to imagine Bradford returning to practice Wednesday and then starting Sunday's game against the Ravens. He should still be viewed as out indefinitely, but the Vikings do at least have some good news on the quarterback front, with Teddy Bridgewater (knee) set to resume practicing Wednesday. While Case Keenum likely will start at least one more game, the team may soon have other options at quarterback, be it Bridgewater, Bradford or both.
