Teddy Bridgewater activated

Sources: Vikings QB Sam Bradford gets knee cleaned up, but no major issues

Sam Bradford's future was cast in further doubt because of another knee surgery.

With Teddy Bridgewater returning to the active roster Wednesday, I fully expect the team to shut Bradford down.

But given the play of Case Keenum and the potential rust on Bridgewater's game, the Vikings are only a few poorly timed losses away from having to make some uncomfortable decisions. "We're just trying to get him to where everybody feels comfortable with it".

The Vikings announced Wednesday they had moved Bridgewater off the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, making him eligible to play in any of the team's remaining games. So, if Bradford is not put on injured reserve, Minnesota would carry four quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. "It's not bone on bone". During his last full season, which came in 2015, Bridgewater completed 65.3 percent of his passes for 3,231 yards and 14 touchdowns against nine interceptions.

However, he injured the knee during the game and woke up in pain the next day.

The area around State Street, Alpine Road, Dawn Avenue, and Turner Street are blocked off as the investigation continues. Officers arrived on the scene and found a single-vehicle auto crash about two blocks north of the initial traffic stop.

"It's disappointing", Zimmer said. "The guy worked extremely hard to try and get back".

It's highly unlikely the Vikings will waive quarterback Kyle Sloter, a source said Monday, to create the roster spot for Bridgewater. Bridgewater was an injury replacement pick for the Pro Bowl that year.

Week 5 against the Chicago Bears is the last time quarterback Sam Bradford played in a game for the Minnesota Vikings.

Already a popular player in the locker room, Bridgewater's reputation was further cemented throughout the process of his comeback.
