Vikings officially activate Sam Bradford for Sunday

Playoff start No. 1 is no time for Case Keenum to turn timid

Playoff start No. 1 is no time for Case Keenum to turn timid

Less than 48 hours before their first NFC divisional round game since 2009, Minnesota revealed that they had removed Bradford from injured reserve and placed him back on the team's active roster. Bradford returned in Chicago in Week 5 but was pulled before halftime after aggravating his injured left knee.

To create a roster spot for Bradford, the Vikings waived tight end Kyle Carter.

Between Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater, Bradford and Kyle Sloter, the Vikings now have four quarterbacks on the 53-man roster.

The Vikings haven't dressed three quarterbacks for a game since November 7, 2013, when Leslie Frazier was the coach and Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel and Josh Freeman all were active against Washington.

Zimmer said this week that Bradford is working his way back in with the other quarterbacks but "has a ways to go still".

Theismann has no inside knowledge on who might serve as Keenum's backup. 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 had surgeries in 2013 and 2014 to fix a torn left ACL, had arthroscopic surgery November 7 on that knee and was placed on injured reserve the next day.

For whatever it's worth, all the way back on September 11, Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in a 29-19 home win over the Saints in Week 1.

Bradford has participated in five practices since returning January 2.

Bradford aggravated his knee against the Bears and was ineffective before being replaced late in the first half by Keenum, who has started every game since.

"He's been doing great", Sloter said Friday. They've been mixing him in and getting him some reps here and there. "He looks like the old Sam Bradford".
