The Minnesota Vikings will be without NFL starting QB Sam Bradford for the second consecutive week. Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer broke the news Friday and announced that Case Keenum will retain the starting QB position for week 3. Last week, Keenum had a disappointing performance completing only 54.1 percent of his passes for just 167 yards.
A report from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen stated that Bradford visited Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his injured knee. Although coach Mike Zimmer has stated that Bradford will be ok, it is disappointing for Minnesota fans to have to trot out their third sting QB with both Bradford and Bridgewater hurt. Bradford’s injury happened in week 1 in the vs. the Saints in which the Vikings offense looked unstoppable.
The Vikings will look to rely heavily on rookie running back Dalvin Cook who has been outstanding thus far in two games. The Vikings have a tough game this week as they play Tampa Bay who looked dominant last week in their season opener.
