Analysis: There were fears that the knee problem which kept him out last weekend against the Steelers would lead to an extended absence. Bradford does have a history of knee trouble, but it looks like he will give it a go against Tampa Bay in hopes of duplicating his outstanding Week 1 performance. Bradford's return ups the value of Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs following poor Week 2 performances with Case Keenum under center.

But Zimmer is unsure when Bradford will play again.
Analysis: Zimmer gave short and ornery answers Sunday when asked about Bradford following the loss to the Steelers. On Monday, he apologized for snapping and joked that there was no wine in the locker room after the difficult loss to help calm him.

Analysis: Bradford played spectacularly in a Week 1 victory over New Orleans but injured the knee during the game and was limited in practice all week.

Analysis: The knee problem is clearly a big concern to the Vikings, though, because they signed Kyle Sloter from their practice squad to be their third quarterback in Week 2. Case Keenum would start if Bradford can't go or leaves the game.

Analysis: Bradford has been a limited participant in practice, and ESPN reported he had an MRI earlier in the week. The report says the Vikings have "guarded optimism but convern" over the injury. Bradford has a long history of knee problems, so you might want to be careful about penciling him in as your starter for the rest of the season.

He finished with -3 yards on two rush attempts as well.
Analysis: Getting terrific protection from a revamped offensive line that was a major weakness a season ago, Bradford carved up a shaky New Orleans secondary while showing outstanding accuracy on just about every throw. The oft-injured veteran looks to have a chance to maintain QB1 value in a contract year, though not every game will be as easy as this one.
