Sam Bradford was very much in one-day-at-a-time mode when he spoke with the Twin Cities media last week. The Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback did not give any indication whether he’d be available against the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional round. A report Friday indicates that he will be.
The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin reports that the Vikings plan to dress Bradford for the game. Whether he would actually be active or if he would be the No. 2 QB on the depth chart is not clear.
Asked about Bradford’s progress since returning to practice, head coach Mike Zimmer said: “It’s kind of hard to judge with five practices. He’s working in, but he’s got a way to go still.”
As to whether Bradford is healthy enough to play in a game, Zimmer said, “I think so.”
Bradford torched the Saints in Week 1 for 346 yards and three touchdowns. He hasn’t played since Week 5, when he re-aggrivated a knee injury suffered in the opener.
Here's an interesting one — league source says Vikings plan to dress Sam Bradford on Sunday vs. Saints. He hasn't suited up since Week 5 with a knee injury. Unclear if Teddy Bridgewater will also dress.
