Zimmer hasn't decided on Bradford's status

From ESPN - January 12, 2018

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Mike Zimmer said he has not made a decision regarding whether Sam Bradford will dress in Sunday's divisional matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

In order for that to happen, the Minnesota Vikings would need to activate the quarterback off injured reserve and make space for him on the 53-man roster. Bradford wrapped up his fifth practice on Friday after returning last week.

Zimmer said Bradford is working his way back in with the other quarterbacks but 'has a ways to go still.'

"It's kind of hard to get reps when you are getting your starter ready," Zimmer said. "When you have 40 reps in a practice and he gets five and Bridgewater gets five."

The Vikings are operating within a three-week window to move Bradford to the active roster or keep him on IR. The latest they could make a move would be the week leading into the Super Bowl on Jan. 24, should they still be playing.
