Vikings activate QB Teddy Bridgewater, place Sam Bradford on the IR

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford earned “NFC Player of the Week” honors in Week 1 of the NFL season. As it turns out, that will be the only game he plays this year.

The Vikings announced Wednesday that they had placed the now veteran quarterback on the injured reserve.

The good news for Minnesota fans is the club has activated former starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Bridgewater is coming off a gruesome non-contact knee injury that almost cost him his leg.

The Vikings currently sit at 6-2 on the season and have performed well under current starting quarterback Case Keenum.

Terrible news for Minnesota Vikings (2-2) fans.

Dynamic running back Dalvin Cook will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL in Sunday’s 14-7 loss to the Detroit Lions.

“I expect him to come back and be the same that he was,” Coach Mike Zimmer told reporters of Cook.

Cook had put together an amazing opening few games recording 354 yards on the ground while averaging 4.8 yards per carry.

The second-round back out Florida State had also hauled in 11 receptions for 90 yards this season.

The Vikings, who have been without starting quarterback Sam Bradford since Week 1, will now turn to running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon to pick up the slack on offense.

Today, Peterson spoke about how excited he is to play behind legendary quarterback Drew Brees and how he feels about playing his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, in Week 1 of this year’s NFL Regular Season.

“Envisioning myself in the backfield with Drew Brees it was like ‘Wow, what will opposing teams do?'”

As for playing his long-time team the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1, Peterson says it was just meant to be.

“It was meant to be.”

Peterson and the New Orleans Saints will invade Minnesota for Monday Night Football on September 11.

The Minnesota Vikings have decided to part ways with former NFL MVP and legendary team running back Adrian Peterson.

“All-Day” was due to count for an $18 million hit against the Vikings salary cap in 2017, which would have been twice as much as any other running back in the NFL.

The seven-time Pro Bowler and 2012 league MVP, Peterson, spent 10 years with the Minnesota Vikings where he established himself as one of the greatest running backs of all-time.

In ten season with the Vikings, Peterson played 123 games rushing for 11,747 total yards and 102 touchdowns scored.

With that said, Peterson could still end up back in Minnesota, this if he doesn’t field any better offers from other organizations.

Teams apparently considering going after Peterson include the New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders.
