Sam Bradford Activated Ahead of Vikings' Playoff Game vs. Saints

Patriots Heading To Record Seventh Straight AFC Championship Game

Tom Brady, Danny Amendola show picture of perfect chemistry

Now the question is, who will they playing - and who should they be rooting for?

The Minnesota Vikings have activated quarterback Sam Bradford from injured reserve, putting their original starter this season on the roster before their first playoff game. Bradford, who completed 27 of his 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' season-opening win over New Orleans, twisted his left knee in the game, and missed the team's next three games before making a truncated return on October 9 against the Bears.

Bradford, who was placed on IR on November 8 with a left knee injury, returned to practice last week and completed his fifth practice Friday. He returned to practice earlier this month and completed his fifth practice on Friday. "Obviously, we'll see a good game and get ready to prepare for whoever we're going to play next".

Bradford started two games, including the 2017 season opener, a 29-19 win over the Saints.

Zimmer did say that he believes Bradford is healthy enough to play should the Vikings need to rely on him in the postseason.

Teddy Bridgewater was originally the quarterback having led the Vikings to the Divisional round of the playoffs in 2015. The last time they dressed three QBs for a game was on November 7, 2013, while Leslie Frazier was still the head coach for a game against the Washington Redskins. Tight end Kyle Carter was waived Saturday to make room for Bradford.
