Vikings promote practice squad QB, Sam Bradford status uncertain

Vikings starting QB Sam Bradford remains questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, but the Vikings promoting a practice squad quarterback makes it seem Bradford is not a 100 percent lock to be ready for Sunday.

Bradford popped up on the injury report this week with swelling in the knee in which he's had his ACL surgically repaired twice.

Related players: Dalvin Cook, Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Kyle Rudolph

Fantasy Impact: 

Bradford is a streaming option in 1QB leagues in Week 2, after a QB3 performance in Week 1 against the Saints. If you are considering starting him on your team, make sure you have an alternative ready to go. The Vikings do have a 1:00 ET start Sunday, increasing the options if Bradford isn't able to go. If Bradford doesn't play, that obviously would downgrade his skill position players too with Case Keenum at back-up quarterback. Be sure to check back for updated rankings before 1:00 ET Sunday if Bradford is ruled out for this week.
