Sam Bradford undergoes surgery

For the first half of the season, it was a question almost each week whether Bradford would be healthy enough to start or if backup Case Keenum would get the call. He spent a whole bunch of his own money, trying everything, and it just didn't work out.

Bridgewater suffered a serious knee injury during a practice, in August 2016, that put him on the sidelines.

The Vikings faced a deadline on Wednesday at the end of the three-week window that opened when Bridgewater resumed practice with the team.

Kyle Sloter remains the Vikings #3-quarterback.

Multiple reports have indicated that Case Keenum will likely start this week against Washington.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on December 1 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. Aside from this, the game's Expansion Pass was announced, which is available for pre-purchase starting today for $29.99.

The move also results in Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford being placed on the Injured Reserve (IR) list following a procedure on his troublesome left knee. He lasted just one half that night as a knee injury caused him to have less mobility than a statue and greatly affected how he was throwing the ball as well (not in a good way). He played only one half of one game since then, on October 9 at Chicago when he hobbled around and took four sacks before Keenum came back in to lead the Vikings to a victory.

It's a tough blow for Bradford, who underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday. "We thought it was going to be a one-week deal, then it was two, then it was three, and then it was eight".

Bradford becomes a free agent after the season. Nothing else was working.

Zimmer said it's "hard to say" if Bridgewater, who is wearing a knee brace, is as mobile as he was before the injury but that he's "moving fine".

Zimmer said Bridgewater, who has not played in a non-preseason game in 22 months, will dress for the game this week as Keenum's backup. The Vikings are 6-2 and now hold a two-game lead on their closest competition in the NFC Nort.
