09/25/17QBSam BradfordKneeOUTBradford did not suffer any structural damage to his injured left knee, and he remains week-to-week after a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed the injury is a bone bruise, NFL.com reports.

Bradford was able to participate in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, though he wasn't close to getting himself ready for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, which means Case Keenum will start again. It's certainly good news that Bradford didn't suffer a more serious injury, though he also doesn't appear to be that close to returning.

09/13/17TEBucky HodgesHeadOUTHodges (head) was waived by the Vikings off injured reserve Tuesday after both sides reached an injury settlement, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Hodges was waived/injured by the club during final roster cuts prior to Week 1, and he reverted to the IR. He now is free to find a new opportunity once he fully recovers from his head injury.

08/01/17DLSharrif FloydKneeOUTFloyd (knee) has no set timeline for return, Matthew Coller of ESPN.com reports.

Floyd only suited up for one regular season game in 2016 before sitting out the rest with nerve damage in his knee. He's not expected to play Week 1, but the 2013 first-round pick is slated to be the top nose tackle when he returns.

07/14/17WRMichael FloydSuspensionSUSPENDFloyd (suspension) had one reception for ten yards in Sunday's preseason win over the 49ers.

Floyd didn't get time with the first-team offense and hasn't looked strong this preseason. It was thought Floyd had a clear lead for the No. 3 wide receiver role after head coach Mike Zimmer raved about him early in training camp, but a lackluster preseason has created doubt. Floyd will battle Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright for the top spot behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen when he returns from a four-game suspension.
