Sam Bradford reportedly has knee scoped, could go on IR

Sam Bradford reportedly has knee scoped, could go on IR

The Vikings' quarterback conundrum appears to be resolved for now.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Vikings activated quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the 53-man roster at the same time they placed Bradford on IR. Bridgewater returned to practice on October 18, less than 14 months after the devastating knee injury he suffered in August 2016.

Case Keenum, who was been filling in for Bradford, will remain the starter when the Vikings visit the Washington Redskins on Sunday following the team's bye week.

Not this year: the Vikings placed Sam Bradford on injured reserve after a Tuesday knee scope.

The Vikings expect Bridgewater to transition back to his starting role when needed, sources told ESPN. Bridgewater has not experienced any medical setbacks since rejoining the team in practice three weeks ago to lead the scout team offense.

Bradford, who turned 30 on Wednesday, will become an unrestricted free agent next season.

Bridgewater hasn't played since the 2016 preseason, when he dislocated his knee and required surgery.

Bridgewater's last non-preseason action came during the 2015 season, when the Vikings lost to the Seahawks in the NFC wild-card game on January 10, 2016.

Bradford, who was acquired via trade from the Eagles after Bridgewater's injury, started the season opener but suffered a non-contact injury shortly thereafter. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2015 when he passed for 3,231 yards and 14 touchdowns against nine interceptions.

With news that Bradford on Tuesday sought the expertise of Dr. James Andrews - which he already saw for his troublesome left knee in late September - it is obvious his knee issues are not behind him despite a month of rest since his last attempt to play and the use of special injections.
