The Vikings added center Cornelius Edison to the active roster, with Pat Elflein out tomorrow. They put Kevin McDermott on injured reserve, which means Jeff Overbaugh is the long snapper indefinitely.

Dont want Shurmur going to a team in our division, I think he's the real deal.

1/2

Bradford back at practice. Per Seifert, if he's activated, he'd be #3 (sorry Sloter).

Great to hear Elflein is back. Rhodes needs the rest. Any word on how serious Ham's injury is? Heard it was a neck injury.

In an interview he said it was a stinger and he'll be OK.

Wright on Bradford: "He looks like the old Sam, 'Completion Sam'. That's what he looks like."

Bradford looks much better. Good sign. What happens to Sloter? Will he be protected?

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2018

I don't either...until we do. I mean, I guess you'd think your safe with just 2 veteran/proven QB's on the roster, but you never know...If Case goes down and Teddy is either horribly ineffective or goes back down with an injury, would you rather have Sloter or Bradford. At this point, I think preparedness is key. I just hate that the Vikings will potentially lose Sloter because of this in a season where all 3 potential starters are FA's.
