Vikings' Bradford out against Bucs; Keenum to start again

Killer D, not Bs, sparking Steelers so far

With Minnesota Vikings starter Sam Bradford nursing a knee injury that kept him out of last week's game at Pittsburgh, the Bucs aren't too thrilled to see No. 2 quarterback Case Keenum. However, a non-contact injury with the history of his knees can't help but flash Vikes fans back to his disastrous 2013 injury that sidelined him for an entire season.

Louis Ram, planned to test the knee in practice Wednesday.

When asked what he's evaluating to decide if can play Sunday, Bradford said if he can't perform in practice, he likely won't play.

The challenge of preparing two quarterbacks to play, Shurmur said, "Is to put together a plan that can attack the defense that you're facing, and then within that plan trying to utilize the plays that fit the skill set of the quarterback playing".

Will the Minnesota Vikings go another week without Sam Bradford under center?

"Your responsibility is to play to the best of your ability no matter who the quarterback is, " he said.

The Vikings welcome the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Minnesota this week, and it's going to be a very tough challenge. We may not know which one actually will until game time, and we'll have to trust that Mike Zimmer will make the best choice for the team long term.

"In professional sports, it's all about next up", Rashad said. The Steelers drew a delay of game penalty after Bryant's score, a flag Tomlin took the blame, saying "it was more of a procedural thing on my part".

Timmons was suspended indefinitely after he went AWOL on Saturday, the day before the Dolphins' season-opening win at the Chargers. Johnson says he will judge the fates of coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan based on how the team progresses and not wins and losses.

Bradford missed last week's loss to Pittsburgh Steelers due to a knee injury.

Bradford was reportedly diagnosed with a bone bruise following an MRI, and told reporters the knee was "feeling better" earlier this week. He completed 27 of 32 pass attempts for 346 yards and three touchdowns.

"Everybody throws different", wide receiver Stefon Diggs said.

"And obviously, he drafted me, took a chance on me. I got two penalties, as well". You can't have penalties that keep drives alive.

"You've got to be able to do what the position requires you to do". Eastern Time this Sunday. In fact, they have not scored more than 20 points in a game in their last eight contests, and head coach Ben McAdoo may give up playcalling for this weekend's matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

While that may end up helping individual matchups, Keenum's job doesn't get any easier.
