Vikings’ Sam Bradford, Stefon Diggs ruled out for Week 7
The Minnesota Vikings will continue to lean on quarterback Case Keenum on the field for guidance on offense, as Sam Bradford has been declared out by the team along with wide receiver Stefon Diggs for Week 7 via ESPN.
The Minnesota Vikings will be without quarterback Sam Bradford and receiver Stefon Diggs for another week, the team announced Friday.
Bradford, who is dealing with a knee ailment, hasn’t played since being replaced by Case Keenum in the middle of Week 5’s 20-17 win over the Chicago Bears. Keenum is set to start under center for the fifth time this season this Sunday when the Vikings host the Baltimore Ravens. Keenum was at the helm of the team’s offense in last week’s 23-10 win over the Green Bay Packer in which he passed for 239 yards and a touchdown to with an interception on 24-of-28 pass attempts.
Diggs, on the other hand, will be sidelined by a groin injury he sustained in the Chicago game. In his absence, the Vikings will rely on the likes of Adam Thielen, Laquan Treadwell, and Jarius Wright to help Keenum in the passing game.
Minnesota’s among the hardest-hit teams in terms of injuries this season. The Vikings are already without rookie running back and their top rusher in Dalvin Cook, who tore his ACL in Week 4.
The Vikings, however, remain on top of the division with a 4-2 record, so there’s no reason for them to take their foot off the pedal despite high-profile bodies on their injury report.
