Report: Sam Bradford expected to return for Minnesota against Bears
The Minnesota Vikings got off to a fast start to the 2017 NFL season with an impressive win over Adrian Peterson and the New Orleans Saints. Quarterback Sam Bradford had arguably the best game of his career, but then missed the next three games with a knee injury.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was expected to make his return for Monday night’s game against the Bears in Chicago after missing three games with a left knee injury.
Bradford returned to practice on Thursday but his status remained uncertain with many anticipating Case Keenum to be back under center against the Bears. Fortunately for Minnesota, Bradford was deemed healthy enough to get back to work potentially making the Vikings much more dangerous offensively in Week 5.
The Bears, however, will be going the rookie route on Monday with Mitchell Trubisky expected to make his debut for the team. It will be the seasoned veteran in Bradford going up against what could be the future face of the Bears franchise in Chicago.
Minnesota will hope to bounce back from a loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 4 while Chicago aims for their second win of the season.
