Vikings coach doesn't think Bradford's injury is long-term

Vikings coach doesn't think Bradford's injury is long-term

Sam Bradford missed last week's game with an injury and it's still uncertain as to whether he or Case Keenum will start.

Bradford, who suffered a bone bruise in his knee, practiced with the Vikings this week but was not on the field Friday during the team's final practice leading up to Sunday's game.

If Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer had his choice, is there a specific distance he wants to get to on second down? The offensive line took a pretty big step back after a solid performance against New Orleans.

He said the injury occurred without contact during the Vikes' 29-19 defeat of the Saints. The problem? Mike Zimmer said Sunday Bradford is "fine", but he's not fine enough to play and take hits. His overall record as a starter is 9-16. As a matter of fact, neither one of these guys I think I've ever beat, Case or Sam.

Bradford threw at practice Wednesday and said he is feeling better. You just never know. "It wasn't ready to go".

Neither the Vikings nor Bradford have revealed specific details of the nature of the injury, though occasional soreness and swelling in a knee that has been previously reconstructed is not abnormal. The Vikings will be lucky to win another game (good thing Minnesota plays the Browns in Week 8) and are more likely to be watching the Super Bowl from inside their local U.S. Bank field office than the field at U.S. Bank Stadium.

His 167 passing yards is the least amount that a Minnesota quarterback has finished with in a regular season game since the Vikings' Week 17 matchup against the Green Bay Packers in 2015.

Bradford was limited in practice for the fifth straight time since he was injured in a season-opening victory over New Orleans on September 11. "We're going to fight".

Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase says he'll decide later whether to let linebacker Lawrence Timmons rejoin the team.

"I just got to start faster, and that's what I'm working on with me, to start faster and get in a good jump at that, " Cook said Thursday. Quarterback Matt Stafford is playing very well while Golden Tate and Marvin Jones have more than replaced Calvin Johnson over the last season or so.

FELDMAN: We said it from the time Bradford was acquired that his body could crack at any point.

"I don't know", Zimmer said. He had monster games against two good teams last season, with eight catches for 104 yards and two TDs against Seattle, and 11 catches for 150 yards and two TDs against NFC champ Atlanta.

"In this league, you have to deal with it", he said.

Keenum completed only 54 percent of his passes on Sunday while taking 10 percent longer than Bradford to get the ball out of his hands-according to the NFL's next gen stats.

"He had a lot of confidence going into last week. We've just got to make sure we're lined up correctly and still bring as much pressure as we can".
