Minnesota Vikings activate QB Teddy Bridgewater

  • Vikings to activate Bridgewater after year and a half

Keenum has played in relief of Bradford most of the season. He spent a whole bunch of his own money trying everything to get back and it just didn't work out. While Keenum isn't the Vikings' long-term answer behind center, he's been serviceable while Bradford has missed all but two games this season, so it may take an injury to Keenum or decline in performance before Bridgewater sees snaps in 2017.

It clears a spot for Teddy Bridgewater (knee) to be activated from the PUP list on Wednesday.

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.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings could place Bradford on Injured Reserve to make room for Bridgewater to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list.

"Just trying to get him up to speed as fast as possible", Zimmer said of Bridgewater. He played only one half of one game since then, on October 9 at Chicago when he hobbled around and took four sacks before Keenum came back in to lead the Vikings to a victory. Nothing else was working.

Zimmer said "no one knows" when asked if Bradford will play again. He saw Bradford on September 22 and determined then that no additional surgery was needed.

Also not practicing were tackle Mike Remmers, who suffered a concussion on the first series against the Browns, offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles and defensive end Stephen Weatherly.

If this does indeed end up happening, Bradford's time with the Vikings organization is likely over. Keenum is expected to start Sunday against the NFC West-leading Rams, a game that could go a long way in determining whether he keeps the starting job for the stretch run. "We're really lucky in that sense".
