Following Bridgewater's injury past year, the Vikings traded for Sam Bradford, who opened this season with a 346-yards, three-touchdown opening win game against the New Orleans Saints - a 29-19 Vikings victory. After that, the Vikings had three weeks to decide whether to put Bridgewater on the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve for the remainder of the season. 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.

The team says Bridgewater will dress this Sunday, but Case Keenum will get the start.

While Teddy Bridgewater's season appears ready to begin, San Bradford's could be over.

Just minutes earlier, they had allowed a third-and-33 that led to a 52-yard touchdown on a screen pass to Robert Woods . After the Rams scored touchdowns on their first two possessions of the second half, the outcome had been decided.

Bridgewater will serve as the backup, with quarterback Kyle Sloter also on the roster. ESPN reported Andrews removed several loose particles from Bradford's knee, cleaned up some ragged cartilage and smoothed out a bone spur with the hope that it would ease the pain he has had.

After his super impressive performance in the Vikings' Week 1 win over the New Orleans Saints, Bradford looked as though he could possibly be in for a career year. Bridgewater is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the season.

Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, who is one game shy of the team record for consecutive games with a sack, did not practice Wednesday. "So we just keep going from there and see how this thing plays out". "He's moved well, thrown the ball well, good accuracy". Zimmer said Bridgewater at times has been rusty.
