Sam Bradford makes trip to Pittsburgh, but Vikings promote Kyle Sloter

Sam Bradford makes trip to Pittsburgh, but Vikings promote Kyle Sloter

The MRI on Bradford's knee - in which he has had the anterior cruciate ligament repaired twice - came back negative.

Bradford is coming off perhaps the best game of his National Football League career against the Saints, and was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

The Minnesota Vikings are concerned about quarterback Sam Bradford's knee, according to a report from ESPN.

But with Bradford questionable to play Sunday, the Vikings promoted Kyle Sloter from the practice squad, the team announced Saturday.

The Vikings gave Sloter $20,000 per week to get him on the practice squad after the Broncos released him.

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.

"Case is experienced, and he's started games in the NFL", Wright said. The 2010 first-overall pick completed 84 percent of his passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers. It is the same knee that underwent ACL repairs in 2013 and 2014, when Bradford was with the Rams.

Vikings fans now will point to the fact that Bridgewater was doing work in training camp after suffering a catastrophic injury to his left knee during a practice last summer. Both are listed as questionable to play against the Steelers. However, the biggest player in that win is battling uncertainty in regards to his availability for this coming Sunday's road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Only one game into the Vikings' season, there is legitimate concern about whether that will happen.
