Vikings add Bridgewater to active roster, put Bradford on IR

Share

Week 5 against the Chicago Bears is the last time quarterback Sam Bradford played in a game for the Minnesota Vikings. He spent a whole bunch of his own money trying everything to get back and it just didn't work out. Bradford acquired in the wake of Bridgewater's training-camp injury in 2016.

The activation of Bridgewater is a major milestone for the recovery process of the fourth-year quarterback.

The Vikings have a third quarterback on the roster, rookie Kyle Sloter, whom they didn't want to risk waiving to put on the practice squad out of fear another team might claim him.

The team says Bridgewater will dress this Sunday, but Case Keenum will get the start.

Mr. Bradford was placed on injured reserve ending his season. He played only one half of one game since then, on October 9 at Chicago when he hobbled around and took four sacks before Keenum came back in to lead the Vikings to a victory.

ESPN insider Chris Mortensen reported Tuesday evening that noted knee surgeon Dr. James Andrews operated on Bradford, smoothing out a bone spur, cleaning up ragged cartilage and removing particles from the knee, all things that could be responsible for the continuing pain that has rendered him unable to play for the past seven weeks. "We thought it was going to be a one-week deal, then it was two, then it was three, and then it was eight".

"It was just lingering", Zimmer said of the decision for Bradford to have surgery. Nothing else was working. "He's moved well, thrown the ball well".

"It's disappointing", Zimmer said.

Whenever Bridgewater becomes more comfortable, he could reclaim his old starting job.

If this does indeed end up happening, Bradford's time with the Vikings organization is likely over.
