Vikings activate Sam Bradford to 53-man roster

Postado Janeiro 14, 2018

Bradford has played in one full game this season when he torched the New Orleans Saints in Week 1 for 346 passing yards and three touchdowns.

Bradford underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee before being placed on injured reserve on November 8. Bradford, who completed 27 of his 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' season-opening win over New Orleans, twisted his left knee in the game, and missed the team's next three games before making a truncated return on October 9 against the Bears. He made his return in Week 5 against the Bears, but was benched before halftime and hasn't played since. He returned to practice earlier this month and completed his fifth practice Friday.

If Bradford dresses for Sunday's game, he could serve as the backup behind starter Case Keenum.

1 seed, the Eagles will host the victor of the matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings, which will kickoff in Minnesota at 4:40 p.m. EST.

The Saints look to build on their home win last weekend against the Carolina Panthers and keep their Super Bowl aspirations alive as they take to the road to battle the defensively stout Minnesota Vikings in a contrast of styles that should make for a very exciting game. When asked to assess Bradford's progress, Zimmer said, "It's kind of hard to judge with five practices".

Teddy Bridgewater was originally the quarterback having led the Vikings to the Divisional round of the playoffs in 2015.
