Vikings make it official, activate Teddy Bridgewater, put Sam Bradford on IR

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

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.

One of the biggest roster moves in the National Football League was made on Wednesday when the Minnesota Vikings activated quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and sent Sam Bradford to injured reserve. And Bridgewater, who hasn't played since suffering a torn ACL in August 2016, was elevated from the physically unable to perform list Wednesday, the last day the Vikings could do so.

Now, Minnesota will have to choose whether to stick with Case Keenum, who has led the Vikings to an NFC North-leading 6-2 record, or make a midseason switch to Bridgewater. Sources told ESPN that the Vikings expect Bridgewater to transition back to his starting role at some point this season.

Kyle Sloter remains the Vikings #3-quarterback. "We're just trying to get him to where everybody feels comfortable with it". Zimmer said Bridgewater at times has been rusty.

Coach Mike Zimmer did not rule out the possibility of Bradford returning if the Vikings make the playoffs and the veteran is healthy.

Week 5 against the Chicago Bears is the last time quarterback Sam Bradford played in a game for the Minnesota Vikings. Bridgewater was an injury replacement pick for the Pro Bowl that year.

"I'm going to be boring and give you the same answer", Keenum said. Zimmer declined to speculate about when Bridgewater might become the starter again. He's completed 63.9 percent of his passes and thrown seven touchdowns to just three interceptions. He started practicing with the team three weeks ago.
