  • Vikings' Sam Bradford: Officially hits IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Vikings placed Bradford (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday. Though the arthroscopic procedure Bradford required on his left knee Tuesday wasn't expected to sideline him for more than a handful of weeks, the Vikings weren't comfortable playing the waiting game and opted to replace him on the 53-man roster with former starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who is back to full health after suffering a devastating knee injury in training camp last year. Case Keenum has performed admirably while Bradford has missed all but two games this season due to chronic knee pain and will remain the starter for Sunday's game against the Redskins, but Bridgewater is now next in line should Keenum falter or succumb to an injury of his own. Bradford is set to become a free agent this offseason and seems unlikely to be retained by the Vikings if the team is satisfied with Bridgewater's health heading into 2018.

  • Vikings' Sam Bradford: Expected to land on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Vikings are expected to place Bradford (knee) on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Bradford underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday. Minnesota will likely make the transaction official later Wednesday, when fellow quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is slated to get activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list in a corresponding move. Bradford's knee scope is only expected to keep him sidelined for a few weeks, but the Vikings determined the impending return of Bridgewater and the solid play of fill-in starter Case Keenum left their quarterback situation in good enough hands to justify shutting down the 2010 No. 1 overall pick. Bradford is hopeful that the procedure will clear up the chronic knee pain that had been plaguing him since Week 1, but given the litany of health issues he's endured throughout his career, the veteran could be hard pressed to earn significant guaranteed money during the offseason, when he's set to become a free agent.

  • Vikings' Sam Bradford: Has surgery on knee
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bradford had surgery on his left knee Tuesday performed by Dr. James Andrews, who "cleaned up" the knee in hopes of easing pain and discomfort, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports. Even if this was a minor procedure, it doesn't sound like Bradford is coming back anytime soon, and the Vikings may decide to put him on injured reserve. With Case Keenum thriving in Bradford's stead as the Vikings' starting quarterback and Teddy Bridgewater (knee) set to return from the Physically Unable to Perform list this week to provide additional insurance at the position, Minnesota may not have much incentive to waste a roster spot on Bradford while his return timeline remains murky.

  • Bradford will visit Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday for a second opinion on his injured left knee, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Though the VIkings have indicated that Bradford is making progress since aggravating his left knee injury in a Week 5 start against the Bears, the team still doesn't have a definitive timetable for the quarterback's return. Bradford's visit with Dr. Andrews could perhaps be helpful toward determining when the veteran might be available again or if another surgery on the problematic knee will be necessary, but the Vikings have already begun discussing the possibility of placing Bradford on season-ending injured reserve, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports. With Case Keenum thriving in Bradford's stead as the Vikings' starting quarterback and Teddy Bridgewater (knee) set to return from the Physically Unable to Perform list this week to provide additional insurance at the position, Minnesota may not have much incentive to waste a roster spot on Bradford while his return timeline remains murky.

  • Vikings general manager Rick Spielman told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday that Bradford (knee) is "getting healthier and has made some progress this week," but the team has yet to issue a definitive timetable for the quarterback's return. Since sitting out the entire second half of the Vikings' Week 5 win over the Bears after enduring a setback with his surgically repaired left knee, Bradford has yet to resume practicing this week. While Spielman's comments seemingly paint a positive picture for the quarterback's health, Bradford will likely need to string together multiple practices in a row before the Vikings have a better feel for when he might be able to suit up again. With Case Keenum playing effectively as the interim starter and Teddy Bridgewater (knee) seemingly further along than Bradford in his recovery from injury, it's possible that Bradford's services won't be needed by the time he's healthy again.
