Vikings QB Sam Bradford ruled out for Week 3 vs

Killer D, not Bs, sparking Steelers so far

Killer D, not Bs, sparking Steelers so far

Bradford didn't play in last Sunday's loss to the Steelers, and now won't take the field against the Bucs.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback practised Wednesday on a limited basis, after missing Sunday's Week 2 loss at Pittsburgh because of an undisclosed injury to his left knee. ESPN, citing unidentified sources, reported that Bradford was traveling to seek a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, the noted orthopedist who performed anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions on the quarterback's knee in 2013 and 2014.

Yet Zimmer professed continued faith in Keenum, who will play quarterback for the team while Bradford is out.

"I didn't know Bradford wasn't playing until the second drive of the game", Dupree admitted. With Bradford officially ruled out again for Week 3, Keenum will start against the Buccaneers with Sloter serving as his backup again.

Bradford said he wasn't sure he'd be ready to play this week.

Bradford had a brilliant Week 1 game, going 27-for-32 for 346 yards (3 touchdowns, no interceptions) in a Vikings win over the New Orleans Saints. "Either way, he's fine", Zimmer said, via the Vikings' official Twitter account. "Start faster and get a good jump at that because starting in the third quarter can't help my team".

GETTING BETTER: The Steelers' offense improved statistically from what it had managed during the regular-season opener at Cleveland. But, still, we project Rudolph for 9.0 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,400, making him the 3rd-best point-per-dollar play through the eyes of our algorithms. They just can not have nice things.

"It didn't change", Zimmer said. Howard had just three targets and one catch in his Buccaneer debut, but he was on the field for 65% of the team's snaps, more than any other skill-position player other than Mike Evans.

At the snap, Tyson Alualu beats Nick Easton to get a clean look at Cook, but the Minnesota running back uses angles well, cutting to his right to use the downed Easton as a sort-of-block, not allowing Alualu to get a great look at him. New England QB Tom Brady is the AFC's offensive player of the week, for the 28th time in his career - tying him with Peyton Manning for the most such weekly awards since the National Football League has given them out. "We've been with Case ever since OTAs, so we've gotten our reps with Case".

Maybe it was the fact that Bradford had been vilified a year earlier when Condon requested his client be traded by the Eagles after Carson Wentz was taken in the first round. Timmons was suspended indefinitely after he went AWOL Saturday, the day before the Dolphins' season-opening win over the Chargers.

As to Bridgewater, on September 2 Minnesota put him on its PUP list, costing him at least about half of this season.
