Bradford not practicing on Wednesday

Quarterback Sam Bradford did not practice on Wednesday as the Minnesota Vikings prepare to face the Green Bay Packers at US Bank Stadium on Sunday.

Bradford starred Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears but wasn’t forced to leave the game after re-aggravating a knee injury that has hampered him since Week 1. Trainer Eric Sugarman said Tuesday that there was no new injury but was unclear about when Bradford would be ready to return.

The Vikings’ injury report was the longest it has been all year. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who missed a portion of the action in Chicago, did not practice because of a groin injury. Safety Andrew Sendejo, guard Nick Easton and defensive tackle Tom Johnson also sat out.

Starters Pat Elflein and Eric Kendricks were limited.

    Not to worry. I’ve still got Spergon Wynn and Jake Long in the rolodex.

  • Gordon Guffey

    Not a shock here ~ I believe they will keep him on the active roster in case they have a shot at the playoffs ~

      Dude is paid and soft hope b water can come back week 10 and go from there

      • Dave Maas

        Dude got the crap kicked out of himself last year behind that terrible offensive line and took it like a champ. Bradford isn’t soft. Unfortunately I think he was probably playing 80% physically and 20% mentally. The injuries are in his head now. That makes him human, not soft. Getting himself back mentally will require help probably more skilled than the surgeon who put his knee back together.

    It’s dangerous to start counting wins before the games are played, but regardless, the Vikings should be able to win at least two of the next three without Bradford. So assuming he’s ready to come back after the bye, they should be in good shape to make a run at (and in) the playoffs.

    Don’t see Bradford going to IR just yet. Feels like this is gonna be the opening for Teddy B, IF he shows that he can protect himself. Zimmer said it himself, he’s not gonna put a player on the field who can’t protect himself. If he believes what he sees in Teddy, then there’s a possibility that we’ll see him start again. Just a matter against who?.. If only we played the Browns a little later in the season…

    • Matthew Rowe

      It didn’t look like Sam could protect himself Monday night, yet there he was…

      • Luis “TGO Fate”

        I mean, he did practice all week… Granted, looking good in practice isn’t the same come game time. He must’ve shown something to merit him starting and you’ll never know if he can play until he plays in an actual game.
