Vikings make it official, activate Teddy Bridgewater, put Sam Bradford on IR

Per Craig Peters of Vikings.com, the team announced Bridgewater has been activated off the physically unable to perform list and Sam Bradford was placed on injured reserve.

For the first time in almost 15 months, Teddy Bridgewater is back on the Minnesota Vikings' active roster.

The Vikings, who lead the NFC North at 6-2, made a decision to shut down Bradford for the rest of the 2017 regular season but if they make the playoffs and the veteran is healthy, the team could elect to activate him off IR.

Initial tests conducted the first time Bradford visited Dr. Andrews in September revealed no structural damage, but inflammation continues to be the root of the quarterback's pain management issue. Case Keenum is set to make his seventh start of the season this week, but Bridgewater could work his way into a game before long. He was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list to start the season, before being cleared to return to practice on October 16. Bradford returned briefly in Week 5, attempting just 11 passes in the Vikings' win over the Chicago Bears before ceding the job to Keenum. Bradford acquired in the wake of Bridgewater's training-camp injury in 2016. Bridgewater is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the season. From Week 8 on, all players cut go directly to waivers.

It's highly unlikely the Vikings will waive quarterback Kyle Sloter, a source said Monday, to create the roster spot for Bridgewater. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2015 when he passed for 3,231 yards and 14 touchdowns against nine interceptions. Bridgewater has the highest completion percentage (64.9) of any quarterback in his first two seasons in National Football League history.
