The Vikings, who lead the NFC North at 6-2, chose to shut down Bradford for the rest of the 2017 regular season. He spent a whole bunch of his own money, trying everything, and it just didn't work out.

Following Bridgewater's injury previous year, the Vikings traded for Sam Bradford, who opened this season with a 346-yards, three-touchdown opening win game against the New Orleans Saints - a 29-19 Vikings victory.

Enter Bridgewater, the 2014 first-round draft pick who was on track to take over as the franchise quarterback after passing for 3,231 yards, 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions while helping the Vikings win the NFC North in 2015.

Head coach Mike Zimmer declared Case Keenum the Vikings starter for Sunday's game in Washington.

Minnesota has officially activated Teddy Bridgewater and placed Sam Bradford on injured reserve, the team announced Wednesday.

"Just trying to get him up to speed as fast as possible", Zimmer said of Bridgewater. Keenum has gone 4-2 as the starter and will continue to be the starter for the time being, with Bridgewater set to back him up.

The quarterback missed all of the 2016 season after tearing his ACL and dislocating his knee during a non-contact drill in a preseason practice past year.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Tuesday that Bradford had his left knee scoped by Dr. James Andrews with the hope of "easing pain and discomfort" the quarterback has experienced.

Morris missed the start of the season because of sports hernia surgery, then missed one game because of a league suspension. On Friday, he scored 24 points and Cleveland shot 65.8 percent from the field in the first half for a 74-66 lead.

Zimmer said "no one knows" when asked if Bradford will play again.

He was been practicing since October 18 and has not been listed on the injury report during that time span. He started practicing with the team three weeks ago. Nothing else was working. Bridgewater is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the season.
