Case Keenum expected to start vs. Packers on Sunday

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (Knee) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. His absence increases the change that the Packers are likely to see backup Case Keenum on Sunday.

From VIkings beat writer Chris Tomasson:


And ESPN's Adam Schefter:


Bradford started in the Vikings' win Monday nights against the Chicago Bears but was unable to finish the first half due to his left knee injury. Keenum replaced Bradford just before the end of the first half and finished with 140 yards passing and 1 TD.

Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer gave no update on the health of Sam Bradford and does not know his status for Sunday.


In last year's week two matchup against the Packers, Bradford's debut for the Vikings, he threw for 286 yards and 2 TDs in Minnesota's 17-14 win to open U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Packers will play at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis at Noon on Sunday.
