Vikings might shut down Sam Bradford to make room for Teddy Bridgewater

Adjust Comment Print

Bradford turned 30 today and made it through just one game this season. He spent a whole bunch of his own money, trying everything, and it just didn't work out.

The Vikings' window to activate Bridgewater closes on Wednesday.

It's highly unlikely the Vikings will waive quarterback Kyle Sloter, a source said Monday, to create the roster spot for Bridgewater.

Minnesota has officially activated Teddy Bridgewater and placed Sam Bradford on injured reserve, the team announced Wednesday.

Mortensen says Andrews had previously shared that Bradford's knee is structurally sound, and nothing he saw during Tuesday's procedure would indicate anything different. Keenum has gone 4-2 as the starter and will continue to be the starter for the time being, with Bridgewater set to back him up. The Vikings quarterback has come a long way since he suffered a dislocated knee and torn ACL on August 30, 2016.

Bridgewater practiced with the team on October 18 for the first time since his injury.

Bradford, who missed six of the past seven games with a left knee injury, had arthroscopic surgery Tuesday.

Griffen stretched with the team at the start of practice Wednesday, wearing a stocking cap rather than a helmet. Nothing else was working, and we just had to try something. The quarterback's contract with the team ends at the conclusion of the 2017 season and he will be a free-agent during the upcoming offseason.
