Vikings place Sam Bradford on injured reserve, activate Teddy Bridgewater

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 11:28am

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

The Vikings needed a roster spot with Teddy Bridgewater going on the 53-man roster and with QB Sam Bradford out several weeks, at least after last night’s knee procedure, they can make an easy swap today. Bradford headed to Injured Reserve.

Related players: Case Keenum, Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Kyle Rudolph

Fantasy Impact:

Bradford's year is over after he underwent another procedure to clean up his ailing knee. Case Keenum is expected to get another start in Week 10 while Bridgewater works his way back.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Update: Bradford has been ruled OUT for Week 3.

Sam Bradford didn't play last week due to a knee injury. He's been "limited" in practice so far this week and appears on track to play against the Bucs. If he doesn't play, Case Keenum would draw the start, and if that happens, then don't start him.

Even if Bradford does play, he likely won't be a great option. The Bucs were vicious against the Bears in Week 2, and although Minnesota is better, it's still risky to start an injured Bradford against this defense. Bradford played well in Week 1, but he's a less-than-optimal play in Week 3.
