Case Keenum Replaces Injured Sam Bradford In Vikings’ Win Vs. Bears
Sam Bradford Injury news
Keenum — who entered for the last drive before halftime — led Minnesota to a touchdown on the team’s first possession of the third quarter.
Bradford exited the game having gone 5-of-11 passing for 36 yards. Keenum is the first backup Vikings quarterback to play for the Vikings (3-2, 3rd in NFC North) this season.
Bradford had missed the previous three games with a knee injury. He took this brutal sack in the end zone from linebacker Leonard Floyd near the end of the first quarter.
