Vikings activate Sam Bradford off IR

But if they wanted to use the quarterback who beat the Saints in Week 1 in their rematch with New Orleans, they'd be able to do so.

The Vikings activated the quarterback off injured reserve Saturday after a left knee injury sent him to the sideline earlier this season.

Bradford hasn't played in a game since then, and went on injured reserve November 8 after having his third operation on his left knee the day before. The 30-year-old sustained a knee injury during that contest and struggled in a brief comeback attempt against the Chicago Bears in Week 5 before being shut down for the rest of the regular season. One of the names that could be set to return to the roster is quarterback Sam Bradford.

Asked on Friday if Bradford was ready to play in a game, Zimmer said, "I think so". "He's working in, but he's got a way to go still".


Despite Bradford being removed from injured reserve, the Star Tribune is reporting that Teddy Bridgewater will still be the number two quarterback behind Case Keenum on Sunday.

Corresponding with the move, the Vikings have released tight end Kyle Carter.

Zimmer did say that he believes Bradford is healthy enough to play should the Vikings need to rely on him in the postseason.

If this is true, it's possible that Bradford could suit up as the team's third-string option against New Orleans, but Minnesota has not had three quarterbacks active for a single game since Leslie Frazier was the team's coach in 2013.
