Vikings QB Sam Bradford Out For Week 6, Case Keenum Starting

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Vikings QB Sam Bradford is out for Week 6’s game against the Packers, which means that Minnesota will once again be starting Case Keenum at quarterback.

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering that Bradford was benched at halftime of Monday’s game against the Bears and his injured knee was clearly not at full strength.

Keenum likely gives the Vikings their best shot at beating the Packers with Bradford still not able to step into throws.

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 two games and thrown for 382 yards while completing 74.4 percent of his passes to go along with three touchdowns and no interceptions.
