I'd like to see more of Jaleel this week. He looks like he can be disruptive in the middle although Johnson started strong vs Bears. Hope Diggs can get back to full speed.

I think he was activated because Stephen was banged up. Stephen's health will likely determine if he suits up again this week.

Via Wolfson:

"The Vikings had guys rushing Bridgewater from both DE positions (not hitting him). He was spinning out and moving well. He was throwing on the run and looked really good to me. It was only a 30-45-second snapshot. From what I saw Teddy looked really, really good.'

:thumbsup:

It's going to be tough without Diggs. Maybe Floyd or Treadwell will step up now given the chance for some PT.

Bummer Diggs is out. I swear he always has some kind of nagging injury at some point every year. He explodes then gets hurt. He was like that in college too.

I think Floyd/Treadwell can get it done though.

Going to be tough not starting a backup QB and missing your best WR, no less not having Cook anymore. Although remember, a wounded animal is always the most dangerous!!

Told you all Diggs wouldn't be playing. He won't play until after the bye.

Sirles thoughts on starting and playing next to Reiff. I wasn't that thrilled with Reiff's signing but he's been very solid so far. Being a Hawkeye, of course he is. They're all studs.

Reiff has been a pleasant surprise. Not so big on Remmers, but he is better then what we had. It would sure be nice to get through the season with all of them playing their current positions, get some continuity.

Sam Bradford - QB - Vikings

Sam Bradford (knee) has spent the past week receiving Regenokine treatments in New York.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the treatments involve removing some of Bradford's blood, having it "spun down," and then re-injected into his knee over a period of 5-6 days. This procedure, which is done to combat inflammation, is becoming more common across the league (it's been used on several Seahawks players). There's no timetable for his return. With Teddy Bridgewater (knee) nearing activation, the Vikings could soon have a quarterback controversy on their hands.
Source: NFL.com

Leave it to the Vikings to have an in-season three-man QB controversy. :roll:

I think we may have seen the last of Sam on the field, as a Viking. Unless he has some miracle, and plays lights out for the finale 4 or 5 games. But I expect he would just get hurt again. His knee is shot. Things dont heal as fast when your almost 30 as they do when your 20.

I have a lot of hope for Teddy, but even I am skeptical he plays much this year.

And Case without Diggs is going to be rough. Has he even attempted a pass to Floyd or Treadwell this season? Im betting he makes a lot of pass to Kyle and AT.

Vikings fans better buck up and hope we find a good QB next year.

AD "implosion" thread locked..putting this here:
https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/adri ... cardinals/

If you've ever had your job relocated to a new city, then you probably already know that one of the most painful parts of moving is finding a new place to live. New Cardinals running back Adrian Peterson had to go through that exact situation last week after being traded from New Orleans to Arizona. Fortunately for Peterson though, he didn't have to house hunt for long because one of his new teammates offered to let him move in.

As NFL Network's Omar Ruiz recently explained, Peterson is now living with Larry Fitzgerald.

"Nobody is more happy than Adrian Peterson right now, saying his prayers had been answered when he found out about the trade, and his teammates excited too," Ruiz said. "In fact, he's living at Larry Fitzgerald's guest house right now, and Peterson saying he had never heard his old buddy Fitz more excited than when he called him to welcome him to the team."

This almost sounds like a possible "Step Brothers" sequel. You have a team (Cardinals) and a player (Peterson) who were going nowhere this season, but then Peterson moves in with Fitzgerald and every problem is fixed.

The pair have lived together for less than a week now, and let's review what has happened in that week:
1. Cardinals are 1-0.
2. Adrian Peterson ran for more yards in one game with the Cardinals (134) than he did in four games with the Saints (81).
3. The presence of Peterson even opened up things for Fitzgerald, who caught 10 passes for 138 yards in Arizona's 38-33 win over the Buccaneers.

If both guys continue with this type of success, there's a chance Peterson might not ever move out. After just one game Fitzgerald has been astounded at what Peterson's presence has meant to the Cardinals. As a matter of fact, Fitzgerald is pretty convinced that the Cardinals would have at least one Lombardi trophy if they had drafted Peterson in 2007.

"I wish he'd have been here 11 years from the beginning," Fitzgerald said, via the team's official website. "I'd have a Super Bowl ring already. But having him here, his leadership, his demeanor in the huddle, I think it's reinvigorating everybody."

As for Peterson, the change of scenery from New Orleans to Arizona seems to have rejuvenated him. "I feel good. This is the opportunity I've been waiting for," Peterson said, via the team's website. "Once I got that call on Tuesday, I was rejuvenated."

The 32-year-old Peterson says he plans to play four or five more years, which means the two old-timers -- Fitzgerald is 34 -- could be living together indefinitely.

Per Pelissero, Teddy will be on a pitch count but no physical limitations. They want to see how real reps go.

Teddy Bridgewater was wearing brace and sleeve on injured knee. Media only got to see individual drills, which we've seen him do before.

Stefon Diggs on the field, but still not practicing for #Vikings. Neither were Anthony Barr (concussion), Michael Floyd, Nick Easton.

I really hope Teddy gets a chance to play, but isnt put in the field till 100% healthy. He could still be the QB of the future. Hes young, and should be healing fast.

Diggs with a groin injury is so bad. They are just like a hamstring injury and can take forever to heal.

I swear Diggs has a groin injury every year and it seems to be right around this time. It's really starting to frustrate me. Either way it's more opportunity for Laquon.

As for Teddy practicing today, they had some quick highlights on vikings.com...one thing I can say, he looks jacked :shock: Way bigger than he ever has before
