Sam Bradford’s return to the Vikings remains up in the air, but the team has identified the source of his knee pain.
The quarterback is believed to have a bone bruise, NFL Network reported. The Vikings are going to give him an injection and see how his knee responds.
Coach Mike Zimmer remained vague about Bradford’s return and didn’t state what exactly happened to his knee.
“He’s doing better today. … At this point in time, each day is a different day,” Zimmer said about Bradford’s injury timetable.
It could have been worse for Bradford, who has torn his ACL twice in the same knee. However, the ligaments surrounding the knee appear to be ok, according to NFL Network.

At this point, Case Keenum is expected to remain the starter against the Buccaneers on Sunday as Bradford heals.
Brandin Cooks, WR, Patriots: It was his catch that sealed the victory for the Patriots, pushed him past the 30-point PPR fantasy plateau for the fourth time in his 45 career NFL games, and resulted in a 32.1 final score that was his third-best single-game effort. It was a key performance for Cooks, whose fantasy managers might have begun to doubt his borderline-WR1 potential after he disappointed facing a superior matchup in Week 2. Cooks’ ownership percentage dropped to 71.3 percent on Sunday, down from 97.6 percent in each of the season’s first two weeks. If you had been concerned about him, consider this: Since the beginning of 2016, he now has 296.5 PPR fantasy points, eighth most among wide receivers (though Davante Adams, Doug Baldwin and Michael Crabtree have a decent chance of passing him in later games this week).
