Sam Bradford undergoes surgery

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) underwent knee surgery on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Since Bradford underwent a knee scope on Tuesday, he will continue to be sidelined indefinitely. However, now into the second half of the regular season, the Vikings could elect to place him on the injured reserve list, officially ending his season. With Teddy Bridgewater returning to the active roster Wednesday, I fully expect the team to shut Bradford down.

Sam Bradford's knee injury potentially career-ending?

Sam Bradford's knee injury is "much worse than people know" and "could be career-ending," according to Jay Glazer, who spoke about the situation on the Fox pregame show on Sunday morning. Earlier this week, Bradford traveled to New York recently to begin Regenokine treatments to address inflammation in his surgically repaired left knee.

Fantasy Impact

Bradford has a lengthy injury history, especially when it comes to knees, having torn his left ACL on two separate occasions. After impressing in Minnesota's Week 1 victory over the New Orleans Saints, Bradford missed three straight weeks and then had to leave Week 5's matchup against the Chicago Bears. At this point, Glazer's report and Bradford traveling to New York to get Regenokine treatments on his knee are both troubling signs for the quarterback's future. Teddy Bridgewater, the Minnesota quarterback who has been out since August of 2016 with his own injury issues, could be cleared to practice as early as this upcoming week.

Sam Bradford ruled out for Week 6

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) is ruled out for Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Bradford, who didn't practice Friday, is officially ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Packers. In his absence, Case Keenum will start his fourth game of the year. Facing an inconsistent Packers defense in a game that the Vikings could be playing from behind in if Aaron Rodgers continues to perform at an elite level, Keenum is an upside QB2 for Week 6.

Sam Bradford exits MNF with injury

ESPN's Courtney Cronin is reporting Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) exited Monday night's Week 5 win over the Chicago Bears with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Bradford, who was active and started Monday night's win over the Bears, could be sidelined for an extended period moving forward. With 25 seconds to go in the first half, Bradford was pulled from the Week 5 contest in favor of Case Keenum. Bradford was clearly not right. He was sluggishly moving around and appeared uncomfortable in the pocket while begin pressured by an efficient Bears pass rush. If Bradford is ultimately done for the season, and at this point, it is an option, expect Keenum to continue to be the QB1 for the Vikings. As of now, I fully believe Keenum will be under center for Week 6's potential shoot-out with the Packers.

Sam Bradford officially active for Monday Night Football

Sam Bradford is officially active for Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Bradford was expected to play for the first time since Week 1 after practicing on a limited basis late in the week. He took part in pregame warmups on Monday and was cleared to play. After lighting up the Saints for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the opening week, the Vikings and fantasy owners are eager to get him back.
