Vikings take Bradford off IR for playoffs; 4th QB on roster

Vikings take Bradford off IR for playoffs; 4th QB on roster

With the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles winning a divisional-round playoff game Saturday, the Saints-Vikings victor Sunday will be assured of having a lower playoff seed than the Eagles.

The Saints are 1-4 ATS in their last five overall and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 on the road while the Vikings are 6-2 ATS in their last eight against the NFC and 5-1 ATS in their last six home playoff games.

Bradford was placed on the IR on November 8 after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to clean his left knee. With the decision, the Vikings also waived tight end Kyle Carter.

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 started two games, including the 2017 season opener, a 29-19 win over the Saints.

The Boston Globe reported Bradford will suit up for the first time since Week 5, but when asked about the report during his news conference on Friday, Zimmer said, "I don't know how the Boston Globe would know because I haven't made any decisions yet".

Sources told the Star Tribune on Friday that Teddy Bridgewater is expected to be backup to quarterback to Case Keenum on Sunday.

That game was arguably the best of Bradford's career, as he completed 84.4 percent of his passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions.

After practice on Friday, Zimmer refuted a report that Bradford might be activated. "When you have 40 reps in a practice and he gets five and Bridgewater gets five".

Keenum's completion percentage ranked second in the National Football League among qualifying passers behind Saints quarterback Drew Brees, whose 72.0 rate edged past Bradford's 2016 mark of 71.6 for a new National Football League record.
