Report: Vikings QB Sam Bradford has knee injury

Here’s what could be a sobering reality for the Minnesota Vikings and quarterback Sam Bradford. Just a couple days removed from putting up the best performance of his career, Bradford was limited in practice Wednesday with what is being reported to be a knee injury.

“Bradford was limited in practice on Wednesday with a knee injury,” Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio reported. “It’s hard at this point to reach any conclusions regarding whether Bradford will or won’t play when the Vikings travel to Pittsburgh on Sunday.”

Well, that’s just not good news for the upstart Vikings.

Bradford completed 27-of-32 passes for 346 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in a 29-19 season-opening win over New Orleans on Monday.

It’s obviously too early to tell the extent of the injury. But considering Bradford was limited and didn’t miss practice altogether, it’s probably not a serious injury.

Either way, this is something to keep an eye on throughout the remainder of the week.
