Vikings’ Sam Bradford, Anthony Barr Expected To Play Despite Being Listed As Questionable

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford is officially listed as questionable for the team’s Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers due to a knee injury.

The Vikings veteran quarterback is coming off an impressive performance against the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football, completing 27-of-32 passes for 346 yards.

“I don’t know, we’ll have to see,” Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said when asked if Bradford would start Sunday, via Minnesota’s team website. “I anticipate that he will.”

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Bradford had an MRI on his left knee on Tuesday and that the Vikings starting quarterback has been dealing with “swelling, pain and discomfort” since Monday’s win. Bradford’s MRI reportedly “did not reveal any specific damage,” but it’s the same knee he had ACL surgeries on in 2013 and 2014.

The Vikings quarterback isn’t the only player listed as questionable for Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh, as linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring) and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hip) are also both officially listed as questionable.

Zimmer said he also anticipates Barr to play in Week 2 despite the hamstring injury. The two-time Pro Bowl linebacker recorded eight tackles and one tackle for a loss in the team’s Week 1 win.

Rhodes, Barr, and Bradford were all listed as limited participants during Friday’s practice.
