Bradford's knee required an MRI. Per Mort, there's "guarded optimism but concern" about it.

Vikings still optimistic that Sam Bradford will play vs. Steelers

The source said that the MRI did not reveal any specific damage but that scans do not always offer a clear picture in a knee that has undergone multiple ACL repairs.

It is the same knee that underwent ACL repairs in 2013 and 2014, when Bradford was with the Rams.

Bradford has been listed as a limited participant on the team's practice reports all week, but the source said the thought was that Bradford would be able to play when the Vikings visit the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

Case Keenum is the backup and has gotten an increased workload in practice this week.

The fact that the Vikings did not elevate quarterback Kyle Sloter from the practice squad seems to support the guarded optimism about Sunday's status, but the team has until 4 p.m. ET Saturday to make a roster move.

The offensive line finally protects him at a halfassed decent level and THEN he gets injured. Sure.

That's good. He gets flack but he is an important part of our defense.

Barr, Bradford, Rhodes all questionable for Sunday. You know, nobody important.

We really got lucky that there weren't any significant injuries last week. Hopefully those three will all be ok.

Tom Pelissero‏
Sam Bradford says plan is to practice today. Feels better. Chances to play Sunday? Like to think good, but depends how knee responds.
Chris Tomasson‏ @christomasson

Mike zimmer said starting QB might not be known until Sunday said Sam Bradford getting better

Why do you say it looks like Keenum this week? If anything this seems like very good news. I'd almost lean more towards Bradford. He said it just didnt feel right last week but he feels better now. We'll see.

I know it's just a couple of throws but if you watch the video, he's moving really slow and careful. Would be nice to see him moving like how Keenum is at normal speed.
