Vikings activate Sam Bradford off injured reserve

Covered the 49ers, Raiders and Warriors for the San Jose Mercury News.

News of Bradford's activation began to heat up on Friday when the Boston Globe's Ben Volin cited a league source that Minnesota planned to dress the quarterback for Sunday's game.

On Saturday, the Vikings announced they activated Sam Bradford from injured reserve and waived tight end Kyle Carter.

The Vikings activated Bradford off injured reserve on Saturday after a left knee injury sent him to the sideline earlier this season. Bradford returned in Chicago in Week 5 but was pulled before halftime after aggravating his injured left knee.

The Vikings have four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster: Keenum, Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater and Kyle Sloter. Bradford dressing for the game would not necessarily mean he would play ahead of Bridgewater, and it would be a significant step if the Vikings were to put him on their 46-man active roster for the game at all.

Sanchez To Manchester United A 'Done Deal'
In later press conferences on Friday, neither Guardiola nor Mourinho gave much away over a potential move for the Arsenal man. The midfielder is said to be happy in London and has insisted in the past that he wishes to remain an Arsenal player .

If this is true, it's possible that Bradford could suit up as the team's third-string option against New Orleans, but Minnesota has not had three quarterbacks active for a single game since Leslie Frazier was the team's coach in 2013.

Bradford, Bridgewater and Case Keenum are all scheduled to become free agents after the season, and Bradford's return to health during the playoffs could help his case if he hits the open market in March.

For whatever it's worth, all the way back on September 11, Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in a 29-19 home win over the Saints in Week 1.

It feels like it nearly has to be Bradford, otherwise why activate him, right?
