ESPN reported Bradford had his left knee "cleaned up" Tuesday to hopefully ease his pain.

The Vikings are reportedly considering putting Sam Bradford on injured reserve, which would end his season.

The Minnesota Vikings officially activated Bridgewater to their active roster, the team announced on Wednesday.

The Vikings, who lead the NFC North at 6-2, chose to shut down Bradford for the rest of the 2017 regular season but if they make the playoffs and the veteran is healthy, the team could elect to activate him off IR.

Mortensen says Andrews had previously shared that Bradford's knee is structurally sound, and nothing he saw during Tuesday's procedure would indicate anything different.

Bridgewater practiced with the team on October 18 for the first time since his injury.

Backup Case Keenum has stepped up as the Vikings starting quarterback, leading the team to three straight victories since their win over the Bears at Soldier Field in Week 5. He turns 30 on November 8, and will become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Bridgewater has been out since August 28th, 2016 after suffering multiple injuries to his knee.

The Vikings play the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on Sunday.

The Vikings have a decision to make at quarterback. His 3,231 passing yards that season earned him an invite to the Pro Bowl. He did start 15 games for Minnesota last season, after the Vikings sent a first-round draft pick to Philadelphia to acquire him in the days after Bridgewater's injury.
