Not because of limited throws i pregame warm up but due to limp walking off field. #SamBradford will be out today.

UPDATED: Sam Bradford out, which was clear from pregame walk

As expected, the Vikings will go with Case Keenum at quarterback instead of Sam Bradford, who was limited all week with knee swelling and soreness.

Initial post at 8:05 a.m. PT:

By video, it certainly appears Sam Braford won’t play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He walked with a noticeable limp, favoring and unable to fully extend his left knee. Thus, with his landing foot affected, his accuracy and mobility would have been greatly diminished.

The Vikings will likely hold out Bradford this week in the hopes that his knee is healthy enough for him to play in the coming weeks.

What we know is that there was no trauma suffered in this past Monday’s season opener and that Bradford’s twice-repaired ACL is intact.

There is worry for cartilage damage going forward. That is what causes swelling and pain and would sideline Bradford for a time if there is damage.

This is a horrible development, one that I fear will result in major limitations for Bradford this season. I hope I'm wrong.

Me too. But I have a bad feeling about this.

Of course, this is basically the only way we could have this season blow up for us. Bradford looks amazing in his appearances but misses multiple games due to his sore knee leaving us with Teddy or a Great but frequently Absent Bradford.

Mike Zimmer just said at the press conference...

"Sam may play one game from now. Sam may play six weeks from now. He's fine."

What a deceptive, depressing answer. If Bradford is shelved for the next six weeks, we are a very bad team, missing the playoffs and going like 5-11. Its huge between missing 1 or 2 games and SEVEN.

I am pissed.

It makes me mad that Zimmer is so hush hush about injuries. If your team is good enough, they don't have to be sneaky about their starting players.

Sometimes Zimmers answers tick me off too. Its like he doesnt think us fans have a right to know anything.

Keenum until they are realistically eliminated from the playoffs. If Teddy can play start him. Then I'd like to see what Sloter has before trading up for a QB in the draft.

Zimmer said multiple times that it's non-surgical. Guys are talking like he's out for the year. If it's non-surgical I can't imagine he'll be out that long

Yeah. I'd be surprised if Bridgwater sees the field this year.

As far as Bradford goes, I think he's out at least another week.

My point is, he gets no advantage doing that.

This teem will be ravaged by Tampa Bay without Bradford. I think the season is basically over if he cannot start in a win against Tampa Bay. We have 3 divisional games (Bears, Lions, Packers) and then the very good Ravens. We could conceivably lose every game without Bradford except the Bears game. Assuming a Bears win and a loss in the other games, we are 2-5 with a starter coming off his THIRD knee injury. I don't like our chances unless we can get Bradford. The season is over without him. If he is shelved for the next 6 games we are going 2-4 at best (Bears, Browns).

I don't think Zimmer knows. Hell, Bradford didn't know until right before the game.

let it be known that i'm not advocating for kaepernick. bradford has played 2 full seasons on that knee and had zero issues, now all of a sudden it's swelling up, but that's normal? i doubt it. it's huge red flag

they lost a year planning to man their o-line with 3 guys ravaged by injuries. i sure hope they are looking ahead here and not counting on bradford or teddy to be the guy going forward. i love bradford in purple....but i don't like case keenam at all.

not to be an alarmist, but at this point it's entirely plausible that we are looking at keenam, sloter and a rookie as starting qb next year. even if bradford can/does recover fully, he's one play behind an inexperienced line from being done. i also don't believe tb will come back fully.

what should this team do?

This is all you need to know about Bradford's Knee right now. Not much else you can do or say about it. This is so frustrating as a fan. Last year the guy gets mauled on any snap he doesn't make a pass in 1.5 seconds. This year he barely gets touched and his knee swells. Only the Vikings.

Well I can tell you the Packers and Falcons arent good enough either I guess because I can just about guarantee the Packers and Falcons look no different than us on the road at Pittsburgh with no Rodgers or Ryan. Man I really dont know what you guys expect or expected. Are you really going to sit there and tell me the Packers with Brett Hundley or the Falcons with Matt Schaub are going to give Pittsburgh a run for their money on the road?? Give me a break. No less neither team has as good of a defense as we do. So no starting QB and a weaker defense are you going to tell me Atlanta or GB could run with Pitt on the road? It doesnt matter how good or bad this team is, you arent pulling off that feat without your starting QB and if you did it'd be nothing short of a miracle. Either way, I'll wait for a response.......

Absolutely not.....I think you roll with Keenum until either Bradford is able or Teddy. If Keenum shows no signs of improvement after a few more games then hand Slotter the keys. At that point the season may well be over anyway.

exactly, stop gap until Teddy can play and then let him get back up to NFL speed the last 6-8 games of the season. Then you can decide if he is worth keeping or not.
