Vikings activate QB Teddy Bridgewater, move Sam Bradford to IR

Teddy Bridgewater activated

Based on these recent reports regarding Bradford, Minnesota placing him on injured reserve in order to make room for Bridgewater this week seems pretty likely.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that Dr. James Andrews, who has performed several procedures on Bradford, cleaned up Bradford's knee and found no major structural damage.

Keenum replaced Bradford in the Bears game and led Minnesota to a 20-17 victory, and he's won each of his four starts since then.

The move ends Bradford's season, leaving Bridgewater and Case Keenum to duke it out for the starting job.

Not this year: the Vikings placed Sam Bradford on injured reserve after a Tuesday knee scope.

Bridgewater practiced with the team on October 18 for the first time since his injury. Keenum has thrown seven touchdowns and three interceptions on the season as Minnesota has relied on a top-ten rushing attack and the league's fourth-best defense. Bradford turned 30 today and made it through just one game this season.

Bridgewater has hasn't played since suffering a torn left ACL in August 2016.

Vikings game kicks off at noon Sunday on FOX. He has battled knee injuries throughout his career and has played only two games this season for the Vikings, who sent first- and fourth-round draft picks to the Eagles to acquire him previous year.

Bridgewater is expected to serve as the backup, with quarterback Kyle Sloter also on the roster.
