Vikings might shut down Sam Bradford to make room for Teddy Bridgewater

After opting for nonsurgical rehabilitation methods, Bradford underwent a knee scope by Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday, a procedure that was viewed as a last resort.

Ironically, Bridgewater is taking the place of Sam Bradford who was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury of his own.

According to multiple reports, the Vikings activated Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the 53-man roster Tuesday.

Wednesday was the deadline for the Vikings to decide Bridgewater's status for the rest of the 2017 season.

It's unclear exactly what the nature of Bradford's injury is; in mid-September, it was reported that the Vikings believed he had a bone bruise, and with Andrews and team doctors deeming his knee stable, it remains a mystery, at least publicly, as to why he's been on the shelf for so long.

Keenum will remain the starter when the Vikings face the Redskins on the road in Week 10, and Bridgewater is expected to serve as his backup.

Bridgewater practiced with the team on October 18 for the first time since his injury. Bridgewater is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the season.

Bridgewater hasn't played since the 2016 preseason, when he dislocated his knee and required surgery.

While Sloter has yet to play a down in 2017, sources confirmed the Vikings did not want to risk losing him by releasing him to the waivers market. He has battled knee injuries throughout his career and has played only two games this season for the Vikings, who sent first- and fourth-round draft picks to the Eagles to acquire him past year. From Week 8 on, all players cut go directly to waivers.

Bridgewater's last non-preseason action came during the 2015 season, when the Vikings lost to the Seahawks in the NFC wild-card game on January 10, 2016. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2015 when he passed for 3,231 yards and 14 touchdowns against nine interceptions.
