Vikings: Bradford expected to play despite ailing knee

Adjust Comment Print

Bradford finished the night going 27-of-32 for 346 yards and three touchdowns. Bradford gets the ball out far quicker, which will stress the pass rush. Rhodes is a big corner (6-1, 218) who on paper should be able to get physical with Brown (5-11, 181) and mess with the rhythm of the Steelers passing game.

Preparations for the game this past week provided Bryant with his first normal in-season game week since he was suspended for a year by the National Football League for a violation of its substance-abuse policy. They had eight such plays against the Saints.

The move now gives Minnesota a total of three quarterbacks on their current active roster.

Some things to look for as the Steelers try to keep Minnesota winless in Pittsburgh since 1995.

Bradford, linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring), and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hip) are all listed as questionable, but Zimmer said on Friday he "anticipates" Bradford and Barr will play. Waynes was called for pass interference on the Lewis reception.

Running back Dalvin Cook is one option for fantasy owners to consider sitting in Week 2, and here is why.

Police said a criminal investigation is underway and they are not ruling anything out. "It was very hot on the second floor". The ex-husband of 71-year-old victim Gail Nova said her devastated family believes the facility should lose its license.


The Vikings quarterback situation is still a bit of an unknown on Saturday night.

Bradford tore his left ACL in 2013 and injured it again during a 2014 preseason game. Minnesota DE Everson Griffen had six tackles and a sack last week.

We'll find out if the Vikings have really solved their offensive line issues this week. The Vikings only sacked Drew Brees once in the opener, but they're adept at collapsing pockets and applying pressure without having to resort to a lot of exotic blitzes or having to outnumber the protection. He missed last season on a drug suspension.

What a journey it's been for Sloter, who started out his college career as a tight end.

SPECIAL EDITION: Minnesota kicker Kai Forbath was 15-for-15 on field goals last season and 3-for-3 against New Orleans.

Last week against the New Orleans Saints, Diggs was on fire. Cleveland offers a very talented running back, in Isaiah Crowell, and he managed to just gain 33 yards on 17 carries in Week 1. The Steelers come in with something to prove: despite their 1-0 record after a defeat of the Cleveland Browns it looked like the team has not quite shaken off its pre-season cobwebs.
