    Vikings considering IR for Sam Bradford while activating Teddy Bridgewater

    The Vikings had until tomorrow to activate quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the 53-man roster, and that’s going to happen.

    But according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, that roster spot could come from another quarterback, as the Vikings are trying to determine if Sam Bradford is going on injured reserve.

    Bradford has played just two games this year because of knee problems, but they had previously expressed optimism that his problem might not be season-ending.

    Mortensen also notes that Case Keenum is expected to start again this week against Washington, though Bridgewater is close to being ready to play again.

    Report: Sam Bradford had knee surgery Tuesday as team mulls IR decision

    Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford has played just one half of football since injuring his left knee in Minnesota’s season opener against the New Orleans Saints.

    Seven weeks have elapsed since with the knee continuing to be a significant issue for Bradford, so much so that he had arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday to address it. According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com, Bradford had a “clean up” procedure on his knee done by renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews.

    The surgery addressed a bone spur, loose particles and cartilage issues in the knee.

    With Teddy Bridgewater set to return to the roster, the Vikings are considering putting Bradford on injured reserve. The move would clear the necessary space needed for Bridgewater’s return, but would also force Bradford to miss at least eight weeks.

    Bradford was terrific in the opener against New Orleans, completing 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns.

    Adam Thielen matches Randy Moss through 10 games

    If you think Vikings receiver Adam Thielen isn’t the real deal, think again.

    Thielen’s six-reception, 123-yard day gives him 62 catches for 916 yards on the season. And that puts him in select company over the entire course of franchise history.

    Only Randy Moss, once in 2003, caught 60 or more passes for 900 or more yards through the first 10 games of a season. No other receiver in franchise history accomplished that, including Moss in any of his other six years with the team.

    Thielen, undrafted and uninvited to the Scouting Combine, continues to defy doubters and secure fans as he churns out strong performance after strong performance. He has six games of 96 or more receiving yards, and he has emerged as the favorite target of quarterback Case Keenum.

    From the BIG BALLS, files...

    After quarterback Case Keenum directed the Vikings to another win against the Rams last Sunday, coach Mike Zimmer said it will be “hard to yank” Keenum out of the lineup after a couple of weeks filled with discussion about whether Teddy Bridgewater might get a look with the starting offense.

    That wasn’t quite confirmation that Keenum would be starting against the Lions on Thanksgiving, but it didn’t leave much room or rationale for any other decision. Zimmer went ahead and confirmed it on Tuesday along with a fairly explicit reason why he likes what Keenum brings to the offense.

    “The thing I like about Case is he’s got big balls,” Zimmer said, via Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

    Coincidentally or not, Keenum also has the Vikings on a six-game winning streak while playing the best football of his career. That should probably make weekly announcements that he’s the starter in Minneapolis a moot point, unless, of course, Zimmer’s going to continue to be so revelatory when he makes them.

    For the second straight year, the Vikings will be playing the Lions on Thanksgiving. When the road team shows up for the game, it will have all of its players on the field, most likely.

    The final report has only three players listed as questionable: tackle Mike Remmers (concussion), safety Andrew Sendejo (groin/hamstring), and defensive end Brian Robison (back).

    Five other Vikings appeared on the injury report throughout the week, but each (headlined by cornerback Xavier Rhodes, with a calf injury, and defensive end Everson Griffen, who has a foot injury) have no designation on the final report in advance of the Week 12 showdown between the 8-2 Vikings and 6-4 Lions.
