Things are far different for the Vikings since Sam Bradford was placed on injured reserve. Now they’re clearly Case Keenum‘s team, so Bradford can just get in line with the other former first-rounder as a backup. According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he expected Bradford to return to practice next week after missing a couple of months with a knee injury. He could still be activated for the playoffs, but Zimmer was less certain if that would happen.
