Mike Zimmer: Sam Bradford has a chance to play next week

Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford on Monday Night Football

Fresh off losing star running back Dalvin Cook for the season with a torn ACL, the Minnesota Vikings could be on the verge of getting starting quarterback Sam Bradford back into the mix.

In fact, head coach Mike Zimmer is indicating that Bradford is day-to-day and has a chance to play next Monday night against the Chicago Bears.

This isn’t much different than what the Vikings have said over the past couple weeks. Bradford has missed the past three games with a bone bruise in the knee. What happens at practice over the next several days will tell us what we need to know about Bradford’s status moving forward.

The Vikings boast a 1-2 record with Case Keenum starting in Bradford’s stead. Keenum completed just over half of his passes for 219 yards without a touchdown or an interception in Sunday’s 14-7 loss to Detroit.
