Vikings activate Bradford from IR for playoff game

Divisional_Jags-Steelers.jpg

This is a weird story, but then again, the Vikings quarterback situation has been a weird thing all season long.

Bradford hasn't played in a game since then, and went on injured reserve November 8 after having his third operation on his left knee the day before.

No statistical trends are going to affect Minnesota's current team, which has been maybe the most balanced unit of the entire conference, and Zimmer has been adamant in debunking the concerns of a Vikings "curse", but there's also a precedent for postseason slip-ups in the Midwest.

Less than 48 hours before their first NFC divisional round game since 2009, Minnesota revealed that they had removed Bradford from injured reserve and placed him back on the team's active roster.

On Saturday, the Vikings announced they activated Sam Bradford from injured reserve and waived tight end Kyle Carter.

It remains uncertain whether the Vikings will dress three quarterbacks against the Saints and whether Teddy Bridgewater, who has been the backup for starter Case Keenum, will continue in that role. Case Keenum started the next three games.

However, a source close to the team has told The Viking Age that Bridgewater will actually be among the Vikings' inactives on Sunday.

Bradford hasn't played in a full game since throwing for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the opener against the Saints. He returned to practice last week, but coach Mike Zimmer said Friday he hadn't made a decision about whether to add Bradford to the active roster, while refuting a Boston Globe report that the Vikings would bring Bradford back. Keeping Sloter around with this move is just another indication of how much the Vikings do not want the rookie getting scooped up by another team.
