  • Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he has a plan for Week 11 against the Rams, but he declined to specify whether than plan features Keenum or Teddy Bridgewater as the starter,'s Courtney Cronin reports. Keenum completed 21 of 29 passes for 304 yards and four scores in Sunday's 38-30 win over the Redskins, but his interceptions on back-to-back drives in the second half opened a window for Washington to make a comeback. While Keenum seemingly has played well enough to keep the starting job -- at least for another week -- the Vikings may be anxious to see how Bridgewater looks in a game for the first time since 2015. It's an unusual situation for a likely playoff team on a five-game winning streak, with Keenum, Bridgewater and Sam Bradford (knee) all slated to become unrestricted free agents after the season. Minnesota's tough schedule over the next four weeks should ensure that winning continues to take precedent over talent evaluation, though the Vikings can always take Bridgewater for a brief spin and then turn back to Keenum if it doesn't work out. If recent history is any guide, Zimmer probably won't name his Week 11 starter any earlier than Wednesday.

  • Keenum will start at quarterback Sunday in the Vikings' game against the Redskins, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports. Keenum has gone 4-2 in his six starts and shined in his lone appearance in relief of Sam Bradford (knee) this season, completing 63.9 percent of his passes while posting a 7:3 TD:INT. Bradford hasn't made much notable progress in his recovery coming out of the Vikings' bye week and is without a timetable to return, but despite his success thus far, Keenum may soon face a new challenger for the starting role in Teddy Bridgewater (knee), who is set to be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday and act as the backup in Week 10. Given that Bridgewater has impressed the Vikings' brass since returning to practice in October and was once viewed as a franchise quarterback, Keenum probably won't have as much margin for error as the Vikings kick off the second half of their season. That being said, unless Keenum's performance takes a dramatic dip, it's unlikely that head coach Mike Zimmer will deviate from what has been a winning formula to date.

  • Vikings' Case Keenum: Logs full practice

    Keenum (chest) logged a full practice Thursday, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Keenum's health was never considered a serious concern for the Vikings, though it was surprising when he popped up on the injury report Wednesday with the chest injury. However, after advancing from a limited to full practice participant, Keenum should be on tap to make his third consecutive start in Week 8 against the Browns with Sam Bradford (knee) all but ruled out for the contest.

  • Vikings' Case Keenum: Solid in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Keenum completed 20 of 31 passes for 188 yards and an interception in Sunday's 24-16 win over Baltimore. He added a nine-yard run during the contest. Keenum played second fiddle for much of Sunday's game, as Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon ran over Baltimore. That's pretty much been Keenum's MO this season. His monster outing against Tampa Bay in Week 3 aside, Keenum has averaged just 6.07 yards per attempt and has a TD:INT ratio of 2:2. The mystery surrounding Sam Bradford's knee makes it likely that Keenum will get another shot next week against Cleveland, but Teddy Bridgewater's rapid recovery means that Keenum might turn back into a pumpkin following the team's Week 9 bye.

  • Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer confirmed that Keenum will start Sunday's game against Baltimore, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Sam Bradford (knee) is still hurting and Teddy Bridgewater (knee) hasn't practiced enough to be ready for a game. Keenum's starting role will be tenuous heading forward, but he'll get the nod for at least one more week as the Vikings take aim at a Baltimore defense that's held opponents to a 71.1 passer rating for the season.
