Teddy Bridgewater Activated from IR; Sam Bradford Placed on IR After Surgery

Sam Bradford

Ironically, Bridgewater is taking the place of Sam Bradford who was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury of his own.

Keenum, who started the season as Bradford's backup, took over as the starter after Bradford suffered a knee injury in Week 1. Keenum is expected to start Sunday against the NFC West-leading Rams, a game that could go a long way in determining whether he keeps the starting job for the stretch run.

Even if this was a minor procedure, it doesn't sound like Bradford is coming back anytime soon, and the Vikings may decide to put him on injured reserve.

Bridgewater was placed on the PUP list to start the season, and he returned to practice October 18, the first day he was eligible.


Case Keenum has played all or most of the last seven games for Minnesota (Bradford did try to play in Week 5 but couldn't finish the game) and has been serviceable, though he's thrown an interception in each of his last three outings. Bradford acquired in the wake of Bridgewater's training-camp injury in 2016. He turns 30 on November 8, and will become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Bridgewater, whom the Vikings selected in the first round of the 2015 draft, has not played since the 2015 playoffs.

In Sloter's case, it would have been hard for the Vikings to sneak him through the waiver wire and sign him to the practice squad before a quarterback-needy team scooped up the rookie's talents.

The Vikings' 2014 first-round pick tore his ACL and dislocated the left knee during a late August practice previous year.
