Teddy Bridgewater Activated from IR; Sam Bradford Placed on IR After Surgery

Vikings activate QB Teddy Bridgewater, move Sam Bradford to IR

Keenum has played in relief of Bradford most of the season. He spent a whole bunch of his own money, trying everything, and it just didn't work out. He has battled knee injuries throughout his career and has played only two games this season for the Vikings, who sent first- and fourth-round draft picks to the Eagles to acquire him a year ago.

The Vikings announced Wednesday they had moved Bridgewater off the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, making him eligible to play in any of the team's remaining games.

Bridgewater will serve as the backup, with quarterback Kyle Sloter also on the roster.

The Vikings play the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on Sunday. He lasted just one half that night as a knee injury caused him to have less mobility than a statue and greatly affected how he was throwing the ball as well (not in a good way). Sources told ESPN that the Vikings expect Bridgewater to transition back to his starting role at some point this season. Nothing else was working.

Zimmer said the procedure was not major, and Bradford's knee is "not bone on bone". He saw Bradford on September 22 and determined then that no additional surgery was needed. Bridgewater is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the season.

He was been practicing since October 18 and has not been listed on the injury report during that time span.

"He's done excellent", Zimmer said of Bridgewater's practice performance. The Vikings then traded for Bradford, who led the team to an 8-8 record during the 2016 season. The Vikings are 6-2 and now hold a two-game lead on their closest competition in the NFC Nort.
