Vikings Week 6 Injury Report

In Sunday’s divisional showdown against the NFC North rival Green Bay Packers (4-1), the Minnesota Vikings (3-2) will be without their starting quarterback and top receiver. Sam Bradford, who has missed four of the past five games, is day-to-day with a knee injury, while Stefon Diggs is nursing a hamstring injury.

Bradford reached a point of being unable to protect himself Monday night against the Chicago Bears, but he did not suffer a new injury in his knee, according to team trainer Eric Sugarman. After missing practice this week, he was officially ruled out by head coach Mike Zimmer Friday.

Case Keenum Was Effective Against the Buccaneers

Coming off of an extremely underwhelming 26-9 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers, questions about Case Keenum‘s abilities grew seemingly louder. Unexpectedly inserted into the starting spot ahead of the team’s Week 2 contest, the fifth year signal-caller performed poorly, as many predicted.

Finishing the game 20-of-37 with 167 passing yards, Keenum’s first outing as the Vikings’ starter inspired little confidence, creating more uncertainty than answers. Should the franchise sign another quarterback to save their season, or, could newly signed, undrafted free agent Kyle Sloter potentially be the solution?

The Minnesota Vikings announced their initial 53-man roster on Saturday afternoon, surprising fans with a handful of unforeseen moves in the process. General manager Rick Spielman has been busy, first trading a seventh-round pick for cornerback Tramaine Brock before making a multitude of difficult decisions regarding the team’s active roster.

There are still moves to be made and other minor details to be worked out, but the vast majority of the Vikings’ Week 1 depth chart is largely complete — football season has arrived.
