Vikings activate Bridgewater, put Bradford on IR

Bradford underwent an arthroscopic procedure Tuesday in which Dr. James Andrews "cleaned up" his left knee but found no major damage, according to ESPN.

As Mortensen mentioned, with Minnesota expected to add quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the active roster very soon, a spot on the team has to be made in order for that process to be completed.

A source said Monday that Bridgewater will be activated by Wednesday unless there is an unforeseen development.

Bradford, who has missed six of the past seven games, would be done for the regular season if placed on injured reserve.

Bradford saw Andrews on September 22, but it was determined then that no surgery was needed. When he returns to the roster, it will be initially as a backup to Case Keenum, who is 4-2 as a starter in relief of Bradford. He spent the first six weeks on the physically unable to perform list, was medically cleared to return to practice on October 18, and the Vikings then had a three-week window to determine if Bridgewater was ready to play this season.

Week 5 against the Chicago Bears is the last time quarterback Sam Bradford played in a game for the Minnesota Vikings.

Following Bridgewater's injury past year, the Vikings traded for Sam Bradford, who opened this season with a 346-yards, three-touchdown opening win game against the New Orleans Saints - a 29-19 Vikings victory.

Bradford has a 9-8 record as a starter in Minnesota and has thrown 23 touchdowns to five interceptions with a 71.8 completion percentage.

Bridgewater, whom the Vikings selected in the first round of the 2015 draft, has not played since the 2015 playoffs.

A second second opinion portends an ominous situation for Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford. He tore his ACL and suffered a dislocated knee in a gruesome practice injury before the 2016 season.
