Sam Bradford (knee) was limited in first practice after his Monday night stardom #Vikings


Of course. See my avatar. Makes perfect sense.


Hope it heals quick and we get a little more of that Sooner Magic...

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


Quote:
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.

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.

Bradford not present at the start of practice. I'd be surprised if he suited up.

I still think the Vikings have a good shot this weekend. TB doesn't have as many weapons as Pitt and their defense isn't as good. Plus that stadium is a big home field advantage.

Either way, I told my Gf to bring her 'A' game.

The truth hurts. Maybe not as much as jumping onto a bicycle with the seat missing, but it hurts.

I'm incredibly pessimistic. Our offensive line isn't good, despite its week 1. McCoy/Spence will be incredibly disruptive and I have zero faith in Waynes matched up against Evans or Jackson. If I was Tampa Bay I'd have Jackson throw deep shots to Jackson all game and wait for the PI.

If Bradford was playing, I'd think they would stand a bit more of a chance. Even then I wouldn't like their odds, even at home. Really hope I'm wrong.

Mike Harris' condition revealed. He has retired.

Quote:
After tests were conducted at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, it was determined Harris had a congenital condition known as brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM). The Mayo Clinic website describes it as “a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain.’’

Sounds scary but looks like the prognosis is good. Worth the read. Good luck to Mike. He grew into being a reliable starter. Really sucks for him.

Just to get a good laugh, Matt Kalil is currently ranked 61st out of 72 qualifiers according to PFF. Riley Reiff is ranked 18th and Mike Remmers is ranked 19th. :shock:

So maybe finally, the "Spielman doesnt know what he's doing" stuff could actually stop for once.

Reiff got a 5 year $58.5 mill deal
Remmers got a 5 year $30 mill deal

Matt Kalil got a 5 year 55 mill deal :lol: :lol:
