Bradford had MRI on knee

Paul Zeise: The Steelers sack attack is back, just don't call it 'Blitzburgh'

Maybe it's the four Super Bowl losses (with no wins), or the near-misses (1998, 2009) that leave Vikings fans a tad pessimistic, always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Mortensen reports that Bradford underwent an MRI, which came back negative.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Bradford had an MRI on his left knee Tuesday after experiencing "swelling, pain, discomfort" after Monday night's victory over the Saints. Adam Schefter added that the "Vikings have guarded optimism but concern" about Bradford's left knee injury, which did require an MRI this week.

- Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer believes quarterback Sam Bradford will play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "I'm concerned about all of our players".

Zimmer then corrected himself, saying, "I anticipate that he will, yes". "Lots of guys have MRIs".

It's worth noting the Vikings haven't made any roster moves this week (like activating quarterback Kyle Sloter from the practice squad) that would indicate they're anxious about Bradford's availability for Sunday, though the team could always make a move between now and Sunday afternoon's kickoff.
