MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Sam Bradford is suited up for the Minnesota Vikings as the backup to quarterback Case Keenum, with Teddy Bridgewater on the inactive list for the divisional round playoff game against New Orleans.
Bradford played in only 1+ games this season because of a knee injury he eventually had surgery on.
He was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 8 so the Vikings could activate Bridgewater, who took only 10 snaps at the end of the game on Dec. 17 and has not seen significant action in a meaningful game in two years.
Bradford started the opener against the Saints, posting a career-best 143.0 passer rating in leading the Vikings to a 29-19 victory.
For the Saints, wide receiver Brandon Coleman was ruled out with a neck injury.
