Vikings' Sam Bradford Officially Ruled Out For Week 3

While the Vikings will surely miss their starting quarterback in Week 3, the Buccaneers will also be without at least one key player on Sunday.

"We've limited him", coach Mike Zimmer said, adding that he felt better about Bradford's chances to play Sunday against the Bucs than he did the day before.

The losses in Miami and Baltimore during that four-game losing streak previous year dropped the Steelers to 5-12 since the start of the 2012 season in road games against sub-.500 teams at the time the game was played.

They are cautious with Bradford's knee as he already suffered two ACL injuries in his career.

Dan Graziano of ESPN reported on Friday that Bradford is still experiencing discomfort in his knee and is not expected to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the first game and he is going to miss this week's game as well.

On the bright side for the Vikings, Dalvin Cook heads to Tampa with something to prove.

The optimism level from 10 days ago, when the Vikings were coming off a Monday Night opener in which Bradford played his best game in purple and perhaps even as a pro, to where it is now has clearly dropped dramatically.

Linebacker Bud Dupree found out Case Keenum was replacing Bradford later than most.

The Steelers have allowed 237 total yards to each of their first two opponents, limiting the Browns and Vikings to just three total touchdowns in those two victories.

Still, the Vikings began this season with Bradford as their starter and Bridgewater on the physically-unable-to-perform list but with the luxury of having plenty of time to get right and potentially return. It appears Case Keenum will take the reigns against in Week 3, which is obviously a downgrade for all of Minnesota's receivers. Sep. The same performance might not have stood out as a particularly bad one in the Christian Ponder wilderness years, but in today's high-powered, explosive Bradford passing attack, any poor performance is especially noticeable.

Tampa Bay has played just one game after its Week 1 matchup was rescheduled due to Hurricane Irma. On their other 11 offensive drives against Pittsburgh, Minnesota only gained 51 rushing yards on 16 carries. The Bucs went to Rodgers when they had the ball on the goal line Sunday, and he was able to power it in for the score. "I think we have our pieces together and guys are ready to go". "Mostly you just want to bite off as much as you can on first down ... the more yards you can get on first down, the more the playbook opens up".

I'd like to see him take a better angle towards Cook, and I'd like to see the veteran safety use the sideline to his advantage.

"Nope", said Alualu, who like Haden has never been on a team that has been 2-0 before.
