Report Vikings to activate Bridgewater mulling over sending Bradford to IR

According to multiple reports, the Vikings activated Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the 53-man roster Tuesday.

Bradford, who was acquired via trade from the Eagles after Bridgewater's injury, started the season opener but suffered a non-contact injury shortly thereafter.

The activation of Bridgewater is a major milestone for the recovery process of the fourth-year quarterback.

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.

Keenum has already been announced the Vikings starter on Sunday against the Redskins, but moving forward it's possible Minnesota decides to hand the reigns back to Teddy Two-Gloves whenever he's ready to go. Bradford turned 30 today and made it through just one game this season. "We're just trying to get him to where everybody feels comfortable with it".

Bridgewater will serve as the backup, with quarterback Kyle Sloter also on the roster.

In a vacuum, Bridgewater is the better quarterback - he has a solid, accurate arm and is a mobile threat to both find space in the pocket and pick up the first down with his legs, making him a tough matchup for opposing defenses.

Jenkins was late returning to the team after the bye week, missing a day with an unexcused absence. Skinner was released again on October 4 and signed to the Raiders' practice squad on October 10.

Coach Mike Zimmer did not rule out the possibility of Bradford returning if the Vikings make the playoffs and the veteran is healthy.

"I'm going to be boring and give you the same answer", Keenum said.

All 22 will have more on Bridgewater soon. Zimmer declined to speculate about when Bridgewater might become the starter again.

"He hasn't had training camp", Zimmer said. "He's moved well, thrown the ball well, good accuracy".

Bradford set an National Football League record for completion percentage (71.6) in 2016 when he threw for a career-best 3,877 yards.

Griffen stretched with the team at the start of practice Wednesday, wearing a stocking cap rather than a helmet.
