Vikings Believe QB Sam Bradford Will Be Able To Return For Week 3

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Vikings believe Sam Bradford should be able to return for their Week 3 game, depending on how his rehab for a cartilage issue in his knee goes.

  • Rapoport explains that this is really just a swelling and discomfort issue for Bradford and not a ligament problem, which is obviously great news.
  • Tom Pelissero reports that Bradford’s knee injury is a bone bruise.

The issue for Bradford is that there’s still no telling how his knee will respond to treatment this week, which means it’s unlikely anything definitive regarding his status will be official until later on in the week.

Bradford, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Rams back in 2010. He spent four years with the Rams before he was traded to the Eagles in 2015. After Teddy Bridgewater sustained a serious knee injury last year, the Eagles traded him to the Vikings for draft compensation.

Bradford is currently in the final year of his two-year, $36 million contract that included $36 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $13 million for the 2017 season.

This season, Bradford has appeared in one game and thrown for 346 yards while completing 84.4 percent of his passes to go along with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

We’ll have more regarding Bradford as the news is available.
