Sam Bradford out for Week 3 vs. Buccaneers with Knee Injury


"I think we've been decent", coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Bradford led the Vikings to their first win of the season while showing no discomfort in the knee that has forced him out for two straight weeks.

He said the injury occurred without contact during the Vikes' 29-19 defeat of the Saints.

"This particular injury we're dealing with", Bradford told reporters, "I'm not sure if I've ever dealt with it before". "This feels good to come out on top in these two games".

Now McVay and Shanahan are both first-time head coaches ready to face off as opponents on Thursday night when McVay's Los Angeles Rams (1-1) face Shanahan's San Francisco 49ers (0-2). He implied Wednesday it's not an ACL issue this time.

Zimmer wouldn't speculate when asked if Bradford could be back for the October 1 game against Detroit at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The network worked with former quarterbacks as well as statisticians to, by its definition, "measure the degree to which a quarterback contributed to scoring points for the team, and also to a win by the team". "If I can't perform in practice, I won't likely play". Zimmer said that it was the result of Bradford "twisting" his knee.

This means Case Keenum will be the man behind center when the Vikings host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bradford, who tore the anterior cruciate ligaments in the knee 2013 and 2014, wouldn't offer specifics but said it's not something he has dealt with before. However, even if Bradford plays, how close to 100% will he be? "What they do is they get a pass rush. He's a very efficient quarterback".

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was able to practice this week after missing Week 2 with a knee injury, but it does not sound like he will be taking the field on Sunday.

The offence struggled in a 26-9 loss to the Steelers, though the factors in the defeat went well beyond Keenum.

The hope was that Bradford would only miss a week of play, but his status remains a situation to monitor as we creep closer to Sunday. I know he went into that draft room and said, 'We're not passing him up, ' and so I wouldn't have been here if it wasn't for him.

"You can't say enough about his toughness", Wright said. "We've given up too many big plays (and) penalties". He led the team in stops with 117 previous year and has 15 so far in 2017, including seven assists on running plays, indicating that he is doing a good job of getting to the ball and helping with gang tackles.

And there's a lot going on.

Keenum on the other hand, has 25 career starts, all with less than spectacular results.
