Bradford remains game-time decision for non-contact knee injury

"I honestly didn't think it was that big of a deal, and then the longer the game went on, it started to feel just a little bit worse and a little worse. And it just was, I think, very appropriate". Outside of that, Bradford, who again was pretty forthcoming with the media, did say that he wasn't aware of any specific diagnosis when it came to his knee.

Bradford played the entirety of the Vikings' Week 1 win over the Saints, but he was made inactive shortly before Minnesota's game against the Steelers on Sunday, which the Vikings lost 26-9.

"I've played through quite a few different bumps and bruises with (his left knee)", Bradford said.

Coach Mike Zimmer acknowledged Wednesday that his starting quarterback for Sunday's tilt with the Buccaneers could wind up as a game-time decision, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "It wasn't ready to go".

McCoy missed practice early in the week but appears to likely to play against the Vikings on Sunday.

Bradford said he hurt the knee in the season opener against New Orleans, when he had a career-best 143.0 passer rating in leading the Vikings to a 29-19 victory over the Saints.

"I was hoping it was going to feel better (for last week's game) than it did having rested a day really on Saturday", Bradford said. He underwent surgeries to fix the ligament and has experience with what has worked and what hasn't with his rehab.

Late in Case Keenum's session with reporters on Wednesday, Vikings public relations director Tom West gave his customary notice to reporters the quarterback's news conference would soon be wrapping up. After going through pregame warmups Sunday at Pittsburgh, Bradford was ruled out. However, the Buccaneers are certainly one of the most up-and-coming teams in the league right now so I think they'll have no issues improving to 2-0 this weekend and a snatching their first road win of the year.

We'll get the full injury report later this afternoon. "If it's something that lingers and we have to deal with it, then we'll figure out the best approach on how to manage it".
