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:

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
http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/spo ... 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.

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.
