Placing Bradford on injured reserve now ensures his regular season has come to an end, though that doesn't necessarily mean it will be the last time he plays this season. He spent a whole bunch of his own money trying everything to get back and it just didn't work out.

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.

That will give the Vikings more information before they need to make the expected roster move by Wednesday to restore Bridgewater to the roster.

Kyle Sloter remains the Vikings #3-quarterback.

Head coach Mike Zimmer declared Case Keenum the Vikings starter for Sunday's game in Washington.

Today, I did this, and Christensen played an incredible game. "If I see that you are not in good form, it's normal". We have to be patient with the team and defend in the right way. "It was only a tactical decision ", he insisted.


However, an injury to Bradford's knee put him on the shelf for about a month.

It's a tough blow for Bradford, who underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday. "We thought it was going to be a one-week deal, and then it was two, and then it was three, and now it's eight".

Zimmer said "no one knows" when asked if Bradford will play again. Nothing else was working, and we just had to try something. He saw Bradford on September 22 and determined then that no additional surgery was needed. The quarterback's contract with the team ends at the conclusion of the 2017 season and he will be a free-agent during the upcoming offseason.

Bridgewater, who turns 25 on Friday, has been leading the scout team offense since returning to practice three weeks ago. "We're just trying to get him to where everybody feels comfortable with it".

"He's done excellent", Zimmer said of Bridgewater's practice performance.
