Cardinals just waived Bradford, so we just lost a third-round 2019 compensatory draft pick.
That blows. Is Bradford hurt?
Is water wet?

Truthfully, I think he's over whatever injury he was dealing with before. He was just sucking. And his OC at the time wasn't doing anyone any favors.

Vikings @ Bears week 11 flexed to Sunday Night Football

Have I mentioned how much I hate the Vikings playing prime time games?
Ben Goessling
... three of the Vikings' next four games are at night, with back-to-back Sunday night games coming against the Bears and Packers to go with a Dec. 10 Monday night game in Seattle. The Vikings' next noon kickoff is Dec. 16 against the Dolphins.

I like prime time games, mainly because I don't have to stream the game 8)

Only concern is it will be colder at Soldier Field with the late start. We've beaten GB in prime time in US Bank, that shouldn't play a factor.

Floyd suing Dr. Andrews. Can't say I blame him. He was on his way to being a very good DT.

I saw that too. I hope he can get some kind of positive outcome.

Per Wolfson, Morgan avoided a major injury. He's still expected to miss time. Unlikely to be ready right out of the bye.

I was scared when he was carried off. He us a great blocker and a very unsung hero.

I thought I saw him come back into the game... maybe it was Conklin.

You're right, I saw a TE break out of the huddle with long hair and run off the screen but I forgot Conklin has long hair too. That's a big blow to our run game, hopefully he doesn't miss too many games. I assume we'll see more of Ham now or maybe an extra tackle in our 12 & 22 personnel looks.

Here's one I didn't see coming: we claimed Ameer Abdullah.

Roc to IR?

You beat me. I definitely didn't see that coming. Might mean Roc is done.

Yeah, surprised me. Depth body I hope. Don't need a guy who fumbles too much to get many snaps.
