The Minnesota Vikings were back on the practice field and Sam Bradford was out there.

The good news for Minnesota Vikings fans is that Sam Bradford was on the practice field on Wednesday afternoon. The bad news is that he was still listed as limited. In his meeting with the press, head coach Mike Zimmer said that Bradford was day-to-day and the team would know who the starting quarterback is on Sunday. For the record, yes, the Vikings play on Sunday.

Bradford and Case Keenum were both exposed to the media scrum at Winter Park on Wednesday. Bradford answered questions about the injuries including a tidbit that he says he injured his knee in the Week 1 matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Bradford also said the following about the process and his injury to 1500 ESPN:

"“I think we figure that out as we go,” Bradford said. “Hopefully it continues to get better each day and we’ll look back in a few days or whenever that time is and hopefully it’s something that we’re not having to deal with again. If it’s something that lingers and we have to deal with it, then we’ll figure out the best approach on how to manage it.”"

As Zimmer alluded to, we might not learn a whole lot more about Bradford’s status as we move closer to Sunday. The NFL, of course, is a game where all things are kept light-lipped for a perceived competitive advantage, so the Vikings might think it’s to their benefit if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers don’t know for sure who will be the team’s starting quarterback. Not that it would take much to gameplan for Keenum, but the NFL is weird.

Vikings fans just better hope that Bradford is ready to go soon. It might not be pretty without the NFC’s Week 1 Offensive Player of the Week.
