Minnesota Vikings activate Sam Bradford from IR, so now what?

Vikings activate Bradford, Bridgewater will reportedly be No. 2

While Bradford was out, Teddy Bridgewater returned from a knee injury that cost him the 2016 season and assumed the backup role behind Keenum.

"I would very surprised if (Zimmer) dresses three quarterbacks for this game, " said Joe Theismann, a longtime National Football League analyst who won a Super Bowl as Washington's starting quarterback in the 1982 season.

If this is true, it's possible that Bradford could suit up as the team's third-string option against New Orleans, but Minnesota has not had three quarterbacks active for a single game since Leslie Frazier was the team's coach in 2013. But now the question is who will back Keenum up.

"Case is the guy", said a source with knowledge of the situation, one day before the Vikings host the Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Bradford appeared in three preseason games and 1 1/2 regular-season games.

Japan's current account surplus at $12.1 bil
Japan will see November numbers for current account, plus December data for bank lending and the eco watchers survey. But the cushion contracted in November mainly because of a smaller trade surplus, due to higher crude oil prices.

"Neither one of them has played much football, " Theismann said.

Though Keenum was slated to be the backup, he took over when Sam Bradford got hurt, then played too well to turn the reins over to Teddy Bridgewater once he got healthy. Bradford dressing for the game would not necessarily mean he would play ahead of Bridgewater, and it would be a significant step if the Vikings were to put him on their 46-man active roster for the game at all. He injured his left knee in that game, and was out until returning October 9 at Chicago. Bradford, who had surgeries in 2013 and 2014 to fix a torn left ACL, had arthroscopic surgery November 7 on that knee and was placed on injured reserve the next day.

Bradford has participated in five practices since returning January 2.

The Vikings waived tight end Kyle Carter on Saturday to make room for Bradford, who last played at Chicago on October 9 and returned to practice last week after recovering from a left knee injury.

"He's getting better, not getting worse, because he's putting more work in and getting more comfortable every week in their system", Belch said.
