Sam Bradford was limited in practice with a knee injury

Posted by Mike Florio on September 13, 2017, 9:25 PM EDT

As Vikings fans continue to bask in the afterglow of the best game of quarterback Sam Bradford‘s career, here’s a splash of cold water: Bradford was limited in practice on Wednesday with a knee injury.

The injury report doesn’t specify whether it’s a left or right knee injury. He torn the ACL in his left knee in 2013 and again in 2014.

Less than 48 hours removed from Monday night’s masterpiece, it’s hard at this point to reach any conclusions regarding whether Bradford will or won’t play when the Vikings travel to Pittsburgh on Sunday. If for some reason he can’t play, it will be the Case Keenum show.

I am gonna go with sore. If I was Zimmer I'd hold Bradford out of practice if he said he SAW someone with a knee injury on his way into work.

Did he injure it celebrating too hard after one of his TD passes?

Fake news, not because its phony but because it doesn't rise to the level of being newsworthy. If he couldn't practice I'd be concerned. Being limited means he's sore, a fairly common thing for NFL players after an NFL game, so they want to give him time to heal. I'll start worrying if he is still limited Friday. This is about as newsworthy as the Dow being down 12 points at noon.

Not fake news as he had a mri today and Keenum and wide receiver Adam Thielen were seen getting extra work in after practice Friday afternoon according to espn.

Was it during practice? He didn't seem to be limping in the game.

Trying to remain calm lol. I'd rather him sit this week than make it worse. I don't think the odds of winning are really great anyways.

A report of Sloter moved to the 53-man. Definite concern with Bradford's left knee. #Vikings twitter.com/milesmgarrett/…
10:48 AM - 16 Sep 2017

Is it because of Bradford's knee or is someone trying to steal him off the PS?

At least the Vikings #2 is Keenum. Rather have him than Kenickie or Hill.

Not hearing great things about Barr's status for tomorrow. If he can't go it will be interesting to see what the #Vikings do . Lamur has been nursing a hamstring too.

Have a great game with no reported injuries and we could be down 2 starters...go figure.

Seriously? Sigh! Well at least we got a win at home on Monday Night Football. I'm so tired of being a viking fan. Get all excited after a win like that only to be totally deflated a week later.

The Vikings activated the quarterback on the practice squad to the 53 today. Maybe Bradford's knee is more serious than thought

With vikings promotion of 3rd QB,
hope this calms some fears.
Issue more accuracy than if #Bradford plays.

Bradford swelling is normal but not entirely unconcerning
www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/pro ... story.html


Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was limited in practice all week, had an MRI on Tuesday (which was negative) and is listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This is an unfortunate follow-up to his widely lauded performance in the season opener.

It is probably nothing more than that, however. At least that can be our hope for now.

Bradford will likely play Sunday. The question – Sunday and as the season progresses – is how effective he will be.

Even in this video from practice, on a light toss, he doesn’t step into throw and shift weight on to left knee.

If an inability to step into throws occurs in games, accuracy will be an issue. Pocket awareness also comes into play if a quarterback is thinking about his lead leg.

However, it is common to have associated meniscus or articular cartilage damage after two ACL surgeries, and that is what the MRI was for.

It is also not unusual to have some residual swelling.

We can easily hope that is the case and nothing more

Review of Monday’s game film did not show a play with injury, and the assumption is these precautions by the Vikings were just an early-season accommodation to swelling soreness.

Adam Schefter‏@AdamSchefter

Vikings believe Sam Bradford, listed as Q for Sunday, will be gametime decision, per source. They plan to work him out pregame, then decide.

It would really be nice to have Sam play against the Steelers. Would have given us a chance.

Also, is Rhodes going to be able to play? With 2 of our very best players not playing, it could be a long game. Why couldnt this happen against the Browns? :cry:

Nothing to do with the observations but how is Dr. Chao still in the business.

It's always something with this team. Sigh.

If the team claims they are optimistic about him playing but signed Sloter to the 53 I think Sam sits this one out. Even by precautionary measures, it's not worth throwing him out there with whatever part of his surgically repaired knee has left. Let him heal.

Hope Case Keenum is ready to get some burn today.

Reportedly so much scar tissue in Sam's knee that the MRI was hard to read.

Just something else to consider following the season.
