In a press conference Friday, Zimmer would not confirm Bradford’s injury or the MRI.

“I don’t know, we’ll have to see,” Zimmer said initially when asked if Bradford will start Sunday against the Steelers.

Zimmer then corrected himself, saying, “I anticipate that he will, yes.”

Bradford tore his left ACL in 2013 and injured it again during a 2014 preseason game.

The Vikings’ backup is quarterback is Case Keenum. Teddy Bridgewater is on the physically unable to perform list, still recovering from a gruesome knee injury that caused him to miss all of last season and cast a pall of doubt over his football future.
