Sam Bradford's future was cast in further doubt because of another knee surgery.

As Mortensen mentioned, with Minnesota expected to add quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the active roster very soon, a spot on the team has to be made in order for that process to be completed.

But given the play of Case Keenum and the potential rust on Bridgewater's game, the Vikings are only a few poorly timed losses away from having to make some uncomfortable decisions. "So we just keep going from there and see how this thing plays out".

The move also results in Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford being placed on the Injured Reserve (IR) list following a procedure on his troublesome left knee. The freak injury resulted in ligament tears and an ambulance ride to the emergency room to save his leg.

The team had a Wednesday deadline to decide Bridgewater's status for the rest of the 2017 season after he spent the first six weeks sidelined on the physically unable to perform list before being medically cleared to return to practice on October 18.

"He's done excellent" in practice, Zimmer said. "It's not bone on bone". We project Bridgewater to total just 7.7 completions, 89.2 yards and 0.42 touchdowns the rest of the season.

However, he injured the knee during the game and woke up in pain the next day. Keenum has gone 4-2 as the starter and will continue to be the starter for the time being, with Bridgewater set to back him up. Zimmer said Bridgewater at times has been rusty. "The guy worked extremely hard trying to get back, spent a whole bunch of his own money trying everything and it just didn't work out".

The Vikings have a third quarterback on the roster, rookie Kyle Sloter, whom they didn't want to risk waiving to put on the practice squad out of fear another team might claim him. Bridgewater was an injury replacement pick for the Pro Bowl that year.

For the first half of the season, it was a question almost each week whether Bradford would be healthy enough to start or if backup Case Keenum would get the call.
