Jan. 12, 2018 11:58 AM PT12:58 PM MT1:58 PM CT2:58 PM ET19:58 GMT3:58 12:58 PM MST2:58 PM EST1:58 PM CT23:58 UAE14:58 ETNaN:� - The Minnesota Vikings activated Bradford from injured reserve Saturday, putting their original starter this season on the roster before their first playoff game. Bradford last played at Chicago on Oct. 9 and returned to practice last week after recovering from a left knee injury. The Vikings host New Orleans on Sunday and Case Keenum will be the starter.
Analysis: Bradford was stellar in the opening win against the Saints, but was unable to play the following week. Keenum started the next three games. Bradford was back for the Bears game, but he hobbled around in the first half before being pulled for Keenum.
Jan. 2, 2018 8:35 AM PT9:35 AM MT10:35 AM CT11:35 AM ET16:35 GMT0:35 9:35 AM MST11:35 AM EST10:35 AM CT20:35 UAE11:35 ETNaN:� - Bradford has returned to practice, two months after a cleanup surgery on his left knee.
Analysis: Bradford, who led the Vikings to a season-opening win over New Orleans before experiencing pain in the twice-repaired joint, had his latest operation on Nov. 7. He was placed on injured reserve the following day. This was the first week he was eligible to resume practicing with the team. The Vikings, who have a first-round bye and open the postseason at home on Jan. 14, now have up to three weeks to decide whether or not to put Bradford back on the active roster.
Oct. 13, 2017 8:38 AM PT9:38 AM MT10:38 AM CT11:38 AM ET15:38 GMT23:38 8:38 AM MST10:38 AM EST10:38 AM CT19:38 UAE11:38 ETNaN:� - Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday that he expects quarterback Sam Bradford to return to practice next week. Bradford injured his left knee in the season opener in New Orleans but didn't come out of the game.
Analysis: He hasn't played since Week 5 at Chicago, where he was replaced by Case Keenum in the first half after aggravating the injury. He was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 8 and is eligible to return to the roster next week after sitting out the required eight weeks.
Oct. 10, 2017 1:12 PM PT2:12 PM MT3:12 PM CT4:12 PM ET20:12 GMT4:12 1:12 PM MST3:12 PM EST3:12 PM CT0:12 UAE (+1)16:12 ETNaN:� - Another MRI on Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford's left knee has revealed no additional injury, after he was pulled early from the game at Chicago because of continued discomfort. Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman said Tuesday that Bradford does not have any ligament damage or bone bruising, just aggravation of the wear and tear in the joint that has hampered him for the past four weeks. He sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday.
Analysis: The Vikings beat the Bears 20-17 behind a strong second-half performance by backup Case Keenum, who started the three previous games in place of Bradford. Sugarman said there was unanimous confidence on the coaching and medical staffs that Bradford was well enough to start Monday.
Oct. 9, 2017 6:13 PM PT7:13 PM MT8:13 PM CT9:13 PM ET1:13 GMT9:13 6:13 PM MST8:13 PM EST8:13 PM CT5:13 UAE (+1)21:13 ETNaN:� - Bradford has been taken out of Monday's game due to an undisclosed injury. He had missed the previous three games because of a left knee injury.
Analysis: Bradford just didn't look right throughout the first half, struggling to move and limping when he walked. It looked like a number of things could be bothering him.
Oct. 9, 2017 7:58 PM PT8:58 PM MT9:58 PM CT10:58 PM ET2:58 GMT10:58 7:58 PM MST9:58 PM EST9:58 PM CT6:58 UAE (+1)22:58 ETNaN:� - Sam Bradford was 5 of 11 for 36 yards and didn't throw a touchdown pass Monday in the Minnesota Vikings' 20-17 win over the Chicago Bears. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked four times.
Analysis: Bradford was pulled from Monday's game late in the second quarter after a very ineffective performance. Making his return from a three-week absence due to a knee injury, Bradford aggravated his injured knee during the first half. It doesn't seem likely that Bradford would be ready to start Sunday against Green Bay.
Sep. 20, 2017 10:47 AM PT11:47 AM MT12:47 PM CT1:47 PM ET17:47 GMT1:47 10:47 AM MST12:47 PM EST12:47 PM CT21:47 UAE13:47 ETNaN:� - The Vikings have officially ruled out Bradford (knee) from Sunday's against the Bucs even though he practiced on a limited basis the past two days.
Analysis: There were fears that the knee problem which kept him out last weekend against the Steelers would lead to an extended absence, but his participation in practice led most to believe he'd return in Week 3. Bradford, though, has a history of knee trouble and apparently the pain grew worse Friday. His absence again hurts Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs after their disappointing Week 2 performances with Case Keenum under center.
Sep. 18, 2017 11:52 AM PT12:52 PM MT1:52 PM CT2:52 PM ET18:52 GMT2:52 11:52 AM MST1:52 PM EST1:52 PM CT22:52 UAE14:52 ETNaN:� - Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says Bradford's left knee is "feeling better" a day after the quarterback missed Minnesota's game against Pittsburgh. But Zimmer is unsure when Bradford will play again.
Analysis: Zimmer gave short and ornery answers Sunday when asked about Bradford following the loss to the Steelers. On Monday, he apologized for snapping and joked that there was no wine in the locker room after the difficult loss to help calm him.
Sep. 17, 2017 7:41 AM PT8:41 AM MT9:41 AM CT10:41 AM ET14:41 GMT22:41 7:41 AM MST9:41 AM EST9:41 AM CT18:41 UAE10:41 ETNaN:� - The Vikings have made Bradford inactive early Sunday, meaning Case Keenum will get the start at quarterback for Minnesota at Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Bradford played spectacularly in a Week 1 victory over New Orleans but injured the knee during the game and was limited in practice all week.
Sep. 16, 2017 12:00 PM PT1:00 PM MT2:00 PM CT3:00 PM ET19:00 GMT3:00 12:00 PM MST2:00 PM EST2:00 PM CT23:00 UAE15:00 ETNaN:� - Bradford (knee) traveled with the Vikings to Pittsburgh, a sure sign he will start Sunday.
Analysis: The knee problem is clearly a big concern to the Vikings, though, because they signed Kyle Sloter from their practice squad to be their third quarterback in Week 2. Case Keenum would start if Bradford can't go or leaves the game.
Sep. 13, 2017 4:39 PM PT5:39 PM MT6:39 PM CT7:39 PM ET23:39 GMT7:39 4:39 PM MST6:39 PM EST6:39 PM CT3:39 UAE (+1)19:39 ETNaN:� - Bradford is fully expected to start Sunday, though there are reportedly lingering concerns about his left knee.
Analysis: Bradford has been a limited participant in practice, and ESPN reported he had an MRI earlier in the week. The report says the Vikings have "guarded optimism but convern" over the injury. Bradford has a long history of knee problems, so you might want to be careful about penciling him in as your starter for the rest of the season.
Sep. 11, 2017 8:00 PM PT9:00 PM MT10:00 PM CT11:00 PM ET3:00 GMT11:00 8:00 PM MST10:00 PM EST10:00 PM CT7:00 UAE (+1)23:00 ETNaN:� - Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns without an interception while completing 27 of 32 passes in the Vikings' 29-19 Week 1 win over New Orleans on Monday night. He finished with -3 yards on two rush attempts as well.
Analysis: Getting terrific protection from a revamped offensive line that was a major weakness a season ago, Bradford carved up a shaky New Orleans secondary while showing outstanding accuracy on just about every throw. The oft-injured veteran looks to have a chance to maintain QB1 value in a contract year, though not every game will be as easy as this one.
