Vikings QB Sam Bradford ruled out for Week 3 vs

Killer D, not Bs, sparking Steelers so far

"I would like to think that they're good but I think a lot of it just depends on how my knee responds when we go out there in practice this week", Bradford said of possibly being ready to play on Sunday.

Sam Bradford will miss his second consecutive game on Sunday, Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer announced during his press conference following Friday's practice. Tampa Bay held the Bears to just 20 rushing yards on 17 carries with defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and linebacker Lavonte David routinely blowing up well-crafted blocking schemes. Lately, he has been sharp. His specialty? Beating the Bucs with the deep ball. He completed 60 percent of his passes and posted a passer rating of 76.5. Vikings DE Everson Griffen registered two sacks last week, the ninth multi-sack game of his career. Yeah. We got beat. "He seems to have our number". However, despite all of the panic that the fans (and this writer) have displayed this past week (partially due to the way that the team/Zimmer have handled discussing the injury) it sounds like Bradford will be able to return sooner rather than later and that this won't be a chronic issue for him.

But one game doesn't tell us much.

"He's a really good back", Koetter said. We may only be two weeks in, but the season might as well be over. Howard was one of the cleanest players in the draft in terms of his production and character. More likely though, Bridgewater might well miss his second entire season following a horrifying preseason ACL and knee dislocation injury.

But Cook has quickly proven to be a strong Rookie of the Year candidate.

Cook, the Vikes' first-round pick out of Florida State, has already rushed for 191 yards through two games, including a 127 yard outing against the Saints.

In the second half, Pittsburgh obviously missed five tackles, but they weren't really egregious misses outside of Mike Mitchell's, which almost led directly to a Cook touchdown before being overturned following a review.

What will the Minnesota Vikings need to do in order to get a win in Week 3 of the 2017 National Football League season? "Every week he does something". He shows great speed and acceleration. "We're extremely happy and pleased with his progress so far".

Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said before practice that Bradford "got what he needed" done in Wednesday's workout and that a plan was in place for him to do the same Thursday.
