Vikings QB Sam Bradford will be active vs. Saints

The Minnesota Vikings have activated quarterback Sam Bradford prior to their Divisonal round matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Bradford has played in one full game this season when he torched the New Orleans Saints in Week 1 for 346 passing yards and three touchdowns.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have activated quarterback Sam Bradford from injured reserve, putting their original starter this season on the roster before their first playoff game. He returned to practice last week after recovering from a left knee injury.

Bridgewater has served as the backup since Week 10 for the Vikings, who have not had three quarterbacks listed as active since Mike Zimmer became their coach.

Federal judge blocks Trump's attempt to let DACA expire for current recipients
The agency will not be accepting new applications from immigrants who may have been eligible for the program, but never applied. Trump gave Congress six months to find a way to allow immigrant approved for the DACA program to remain in the USA permanently.

The Vikings meanwhile should be well rested here after receiving a bye last week by virtue of claiming the conference's second overall seed and now they get a home game against a Saints group who went right down to the wire last weekend against a hard fighting Carolina Panthers team.

The Vikings waived tight end Kyle Carter on Saturday to make room for Bradford, who last played at Chicago on October 9 and returned to practice last week after recovering from a left knee injury. Central time Sunday on Fox, with the NFC championship set for 5:40 p.m. January 21, also on Fox.

That means the Saints-Vikings victor will be on the road when they play next week against the Eagles in the NFC championship game.

Despite Bradford being removed from injured reserve, the Star Tribune is reporting that Teddy Bridgewater will still be the number two quarterback behind Case Keenum on Sunday. The last time they dressed three QBs for a game was on November 7, 2013, while Leslie Frazier was still the head coach for a game against the Washington Redskins.
