Vikings Sign Practice Squad QB -- In Case Bradford Can't Go

"It's hard to say", Zimmer said. Nobody really knows. But anytime you have a Corey Kluber at the top of the rotation, I have to like their chances all the way to a return to the World Series.
In his post-game press conference on Sunday, Zimmer snapped at reporters, telling reporters, "Sam's going to be OK. OK?" Just like last week, the coaching staff will have a lot issues to address if they want to find themselves back in the AFC Championship.
Keith Tandy, S, Buccaneers (Christian County): Two solo tackles in win against Bears. "Honestly, I don't have a crystal ball". They needed an average of 9 yards to go on third down.
Should the need arise for Keenum to start another game for Minnesota, Zimmer said he "feels good" about him in the huddle.
"Sometimes, if you've got everybody out on a route, and they bring an extra guy and the line is sliding one way, they're going to have a free runner, and the guy has to come back in and take the most unsafe guy", Zimmer said. But while the NFL Network reported the injury was a bone bruise, Zimmer said, "I think he twisted it or something during the (Saints) game", referring to the season opener.
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. Case Keenum struggled to get anything going in Bradford's absence, throwing for just 167 yards on 20 of 35 passing.
Bradford is expected to play again this season. The Vikings are a better team against the run than the Browns are, making Pittsburgh's task this week a bit hard. The Dolphins filed a missing-person report before making contact with Timmons, who apparently was dealing with a personal matter. "Then we made some mistakes defensively-jumped offsides on fourth down-we had some penalties that hurt us". We are going to be frustrated, but tomorrow we are going back to work, watch film and get better. We realize we're not going to be ideal, particularly at this stage of the journey, no one is.
There was a large sect of Broncos Country that wanted Sloter as the backup quarterback going into the season, especially with the injury to Paxton Lynch.
The Vikings have two franchise quarterbacks on the roster and neither can play because of left knee injuries.
"I think he twisted it or something during the [Saints] game", he said. I am intrigued to see how newly-acquired DeSean Jackson fits into this offense and how he impacts the targets that go towards Mike Evans and Cameron Brate.
