Sam Bradford, Stegon Diggs ruled out for Vikings' showdown vs. Packers

14 October 2017

Facing an inconsistent Packers defense in a game that the Vikings could be playing from behind in if Aaron Rodgers continues to perform at an elite level, Keenum is an upside QB2 for Week 6.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said Bradford and Stefon Diggs will be out Sunday against the division rival Green Bay Packers. For a team that has already lost promising rookie running back Dalvin Cook for the season with a torn ACL, the uncertainty only increases.

Bradford, who has been nursing a knee injury ever since Week 1, played briefly on Monday night against Chicago before being pulled after apparently re-injuring his knee. His timetable to return to the practice field is unclear.

In last year's week two matchup against the Packers, Bradford's debut for the Vikings, he threw for 286 yards and 2 TDs in Minnesota's 17-14 win to open U.S. Bank Stadium.

Diggs was also injured Monday night against the Bears, suffering a groin injury. Easton will become the first Minnesota offensive lineman to miss a start this season. Starting safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) is listed as questionable after returning to practice Friday.
