Let's get it on.

Early reports suggesting Barr, Rhodes a "go." Bradford to warm up and the team will decide.

Teddy news...

Bradford has said he expects to play. We'll learn for sure when the inactives are announced in the next hour or so.

During warmups Sam could be seen barely dropping back to pass. Walking with a slight limp. Not good.

Don't hate on my Buckeyes. Some of the best Vikings went to Ohio State.

Great. Thought for sure Johnson and Brock would play. At least Rhodes and Barr are active.

Sigh. Confidence...leaking...

Bradford is out so I think we will lose now. We basically never have a QB play the whole season.

I thought that Brock would be seeing some playing time. Him being inactive is a surprise, secondary is going to have their hands full today.

Looks like our defense will have to take us to the W guys!
Hopefully our running game makes passing opportunities easier for Keenum.

I think he's one of the best backups in the league. I think the Vikings best off-season move is signing him.

I still want to know what the freaking injury was. Dude gets the #### beat out of him every game last year and plays like Brett #### Farve. Gets sacked ONCE and suffer no apparent injury and is out next week. ugh.

A couple fumbles, 3 interceptions and maybe a punt return for a TD and we'll be right in this.

@purplebuckeye And Jay Glazer just said Bradford's knee is going to be a constant/chronic thing because of all the past damage. Great. #Vikings
