Sloter was 11-of-15 for 85 yards passing with two touchdowns in Friday's preseason game.
Sloter bounced back from a mediocre outing in the second preseason game (10-for-15 passing for 82 yards). However, it's not clear if the Vikings will keep a third quarterback on the roster after Kirk Cousins and Trevor Siemian.
Sloter was 10-of-15 for 82 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to Jacksonville. He didn't have an interception or touchdown pass and averaged just 5.5 yards per attempt.
It's not clear if the Vikings will keep a third quarterback on the roster after Kirk Cousins and Trevor Siemian. Sloter will likely need to show more in the preseason to help make his case.
Sloter was 9-of-11 for 69 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason win at Denver. He also had two carries for 19 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown.
Sloter looks locked in as the third quarterback as Trevor Siemian is set as the backup to Kirk Cousins. The only question is whether the Vikings will keep a third quarterback on the 53-man roster, but that seems likely given the quarterback turnover the team has had the past two seasons.
Sloter isn't expected to dress for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Sloter had been acting as the Vikings' No. 2 quarterback behind starter Case Keenum the past three games while Sam Bradford (knee) was unavailable. Though Bradford was placed on injured reserve and isn't likely to return this season, the team activated fellow signal caller Teddy Bridgewater (knee) from the Physically Unable to Perform list in a corresponding move, pushing Sloter down a rung on the depth chart. He could be inactive for each of the Vikings' final eight games if both Keenum and Bridgewater remain healthy.
