Vikings promote QB Kyle Sloter amid concern over Sam Bradford's knee

The Minnesota Vikings have an interesting situation on their hands with the recent reports of Sam Bradford having a bit of a concerning injury heading into week two.

Bradford is no stranger to left knee problems as he has already torn the ACL in it twice so far during his National Football League career.

"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.

Bradford and Barr both were hurt in last Monday's 29-19 win over New Orleans.

Bradford has had numerous injuries before so it wouldn't also be much of a surprise if the Vikings decide to put him on the shelf for at least Week 2. Rhodes apparently was hurt in practice Wednesday and was limited in workouts Thursday and Friday. Bradford is traveling with the team to Pittsburgh and was officially listed as "questionable" on the injury report. He suffered a torn ACL in the same knee in the preseason in 2014 and missed the entire season. He was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week. He threw for 346 yards and 3 touchdowns, completing 84.4 percent of his passes and putting together one of the best performances of his life, but it looks like he might not play on Sunday.

If Bradford is unable to play, that'd leave backup Case Keenum to hold down the starting duties.

Unfortunately, anyone who has followed this franchise for any amount of time knows that when things seem nearly too good to be true that a cold slap of reality is right around the corner.
