Vikings' Case Keenum to start again with Sam Bradford ruled out

Vikings' Case Keenum to start again with Sam Bradford ruled out

The Minnesota Vikings are dinged up heading into Packers week.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer announced Friday that Bradford would be unable to play against the defending NFC North champions.

Quarterback Sam Bradford did not practice on for the second straight day, giving indication that Case Keenum will likely start against Green Bay. Quarterback Sam Bradford, receiver Stefon Diggs and left guard Nick Easton all will be out because of injuries.

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.


Diggs was also injured Monday night against the Bears, suffering a groin injury.

Keenum finished that game 17-of-21 for 140 yards and a touchdown, and he has generally been solid in relief of Bradford this season.

Easton, who departed Monday's game with a calf injury, will likely be replaced by Jeremiah Sirles, who started 10 games for the Vikings past year, though most were at right tackle. Starting safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) is listed as questionable after returning to practice Friday. It will be the first start this season for Sirles.
