Sam Bradford's Knee Injury Is Starting To Seem Serious

Sam Bradford's Knee Injury Is Starting To Seem Serious”

Everyone in the state of Minnesota is keeping their fingers and toes crossed that Sam Bradford can start under centre for the Vikings on Sunday against the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 2017 Vikings could again be one of the league's best units on the defensive side of the ball, but even with the impressive start of rookie Dalvin Cook, it's hard to imagine this group having a weapon as dynamic as Peterson. Kyle Sloter will back him up this weekend. "He seems to have our number". "It looked like the Vikings ran their offense last week".

Bradford declined to reveal the diagnosis of the current injury but said it's something he's never had before. In Bradford's place, Case Keenum went 20-for-37 with 167 yards and did not throw a touchdown or interception. According to Tom Peliserro of NFL Network, Bradford said he will base his decision on his performance during practice.

"He feels better today", Zimmer said of Bradford. Remmers started that year on Tampa Bay's practice squad but was signed off of that crew to the Chargers' active roster in October. You have to take care of the guys up front, make a guy miss.

Players tend to agree, especially those who are on the other end of passes.

As soon as we find out more information on Bradford we will be sure to update you. He completed 27 of 32 pass attempts for 346 yards and three touchdowns.

Bradford was hopeful earlier in the week that he would be back under center for Minnesota. If the Vikings get pressure on Winston, this won't matter. "I thought we weren't a gambling league and we were against all those things".

The Steelers paid tribute to Dan Rooney prior to the home opener, and the ceremony and celebration included quarterback Ben Roethlisberger sprinting from the tunnel as the offense was being introduced carrying a flag bearing Rooney's initials, "D.M.R".

Linebackers Anthony Barr and Erik Kendricks did a fine job containing Pittsburgh running back Le'Veon Bell, who averaged 3.2 yards per carry.

Koetter knows Cook's potential well.

Conceptually, the Bucs' defense is similar to what Keenum remembers. But as coach Dirk Koetter has said, they can't count on getting four turnovers in the first half every Sunday.

The Steelers also blitzed a lot, and many of them weren't picked up. They're good. They're a turnover machine. Defensive coordinator Mike Smith schemed against the quarterback previous year. The Bucs throw a lot of different skill sets at receiver with the small, shifty, speedy DeSean Jackson and the bigger, stronger Mike Evans. Brown ultimately got the upper hand, finishing with five receptions for 62 yards. Plus, there's one from just before game time and another one from this week. "I got two penalties, as well".

"We consider him a game-wrecker", Smith said Wednesday. "The defense, they're some savages". He had been hopeful of playing against the Buccaneers, but wanted to see how his knee responded to practice. Cornerback Brent Grimes (shoulder) was limited.
