Sam Bradford exits Vikings' win over Bears with apparent knee injury

Preview: Vikings at Bears

NFL Today, Week 5

Bradford had not fully practiced since days leading up to his Week 1 breakout against New Orleans. I tried to approach the week like I was starting. "In that regard, I think my mobility has definitely improved", Bradford said then.

It's doubtful playing Monday night will result in similar long-term damage to Bradford's National Football League career, but it didn't take long to see he wasn't himself and needed to stand on the sideline while Keenum took the reins of the Minnesota offense. "Being prepared like that helps".

His fadeout raises pointed questions about whether Bradford will ever suit up for the Vikings again. It's just too much and with the Packers coming up, you want to hope that Bradford can play but it doesn't look like he's going to be back and that's just not enough to beat the Packers, especially considering that they're tied to the Bears in the 4th quarter after a ton of freak plays and penalties (and more disgusting play by Trae Waynes).

Zimmer said Bradford, who finished just 5-of-11 for 36 yards and a 53.6 rating and wasn't able to navigate in the pocket or get much into his throws before being pulled for Case Keenum shortly before halftime, aggravated his knee injury but the Vikings are confident he'll be OK.

Bradford participated in a limited capacity heading into the Vikings' second straight NFC North matchup after missing two weeks of practice. A Keenum to Kyle Rudolph got the scoring started, giving the Vikings a 10-2 lead.

"(Guard) Nick Easton had a great block", McKinnon said. And the rookie showed that the stage and the stakes won't easily overwhelm him.

Bradford opened the season against the Saints by completing 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns in a 29-19 win. At one point, the Bears held a yards advantage of 109-2 as Minnesota grabbed the ball for the first time in the second quarter.

"We wouldn't have put (Bradford) on the field if he wasn't healthy enough to play", Zimmer said. It was the Vikings' longest run of the season. McKinnon carried 16 times for 95 yards and a touchdown. "Us as running backs, we have explosive group, and we knew we had to make those plays without Dalvin here". Pretty sharp for a player making only his 14th start in a football game since his senior year of high school in 2012. One came from special teams and the other from offense on a two-point conversion.

Yet Griffen's costly offside penalty on a potential third-down stop extended Chicago's tying touchdown drive early in the fourth quarter.

"It was fun", he said. So afterward, Trubisky stepped up like and acted like a leader should.

McKinnon was also effective catching the ball, with six receptions for 51 yards. "But he felt pretty good about things".

Smith, who made the decisive interception, was equally impressed with Trubisky. "We didn't play our best, but our guys battled, played hard".
