Zimmer says he’s considered dressing three QBs

By Matthew Coller

If you ranked the remaining quarterbacks in the playoffs, you could reasonably put three Minnesota Vikings QBs ahead of everyone except Tom Brady.

With so much talent at the position between Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater, there’s a chance the Vikings could dress all three QBs against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

“I’ve thought about it,” Zimmer said when asked whether he could see a scenario with all three quarterbacks active.

Zimmer would not confirm whether Sam Bradford would be his quarterback. Last week against the New Orleans Saints, Bradford acted as the No. 2 QB.

Bridgewater has been practicing with the team since the middle of October, when he returned from a catestrophic knee injury suffered in late August 2016. He has only played two series’ since, both coming at the end of the Vikings’ win over Cincinnati.

The Vikings’ head coach used the quarterback situation as an example of the character of his 13-3 team.

“When [Sam] Bradford came back he said, ‘I don’t want to be a distraction, things are going good, I just want to get back out there because that’s what I like to do,’” Zimmer said. “I like to go play and practice.’ So, these guys understand the things are going pretty good so there’s no real reason to rock the boat.”

The post Zimmer says he’s considered dressing three QBs appeared first on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.

Sendejo, Thielen Return To Vikings Practice

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo is working his way back from a concussion that forced him out of the previous game.

Sendejo took part in a limited portion of practice Thursday for the second straight day, after a hit to the head from New Orleans wide receiver Michael Thomas knocked him to the turf and out of the game. The Vikings beat the Saints to advance to the NFC championship game at Philadelphia.

Wide receiver Adam Thielen was also a limited participant at practice Thursday after being held out the day before because of a lower back injury.

Wide receiver Michael Floyd didn’t practice on Thursday because of an illness. Another backup, defensive tackle Shamar Stephen, was held out Thursday for the second straight day with knee and ankle injuries.
