Vikings take Bradford off IR for Saints game; 4th QB on roster

Vikings take Bradford off IR for Saints game; 4th QB on roster

18, a day after they were again flattened into an 0-2 hole.

According to a report Friday by the Boston Globe, the Vikings plan to activate and dress out Sam Bradford, who is on injured reserve with a knee injury and hasn't played since October 9.

"We talked about it", Payton told Twin Cities reporters on a conference call.

And while I have trouble recalling what I did two or three days ago, the sights and sounds of the afternoon of January 24, 2009, inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, then known simply as the Louisiana Superdome, still remain loud and clear in my mind. The defense was impacted, too, and by Christmas the main storyline was whether the defensive players were revolting against their head coach.

Just because the Vikings won handily in Week 1, it does not mean Sunday's playoff game will have a similar result. This is not to say the Vikings don't get plenty of credit for creating their own fortune.

49ers Reuben Foster arrested in Alabama
According to Tuscaloosa police, officers encountered Foster near the intersection of Highway 69 South and Oscar Baxter Drive. Foster appeared in 10 games for the 49ers as a rookie this year, recording 59 tackles and defending one pass.

Bradford, who was unavailable Friday for comment, hasn't played in a full game since throwing for 346 yards and three touchdowns in an epic Week 1 performance to beat to the Saints.

Two other Saints players are listed as questionable because of illness: linebacker Michael Mauti and quarterback Taysom Hill, both of whom play roles on special teams. This is Keenum's game to win or lose.

"That's a confidence booster, and you never look back", Jordan said.

"I love it when these guys come back that to me is a sign you have a program and so I want them always to feel welcome they were a big part of what all of us are now standing on", explained Payton. There's that balance. It's one of the things Minnesota does well.

Bradford also had success against the Saints way back in Week 1.

Lonzo Ball double-doubles again in Lakers' win over Spurs
In an interview with ESPN , Ball, the father of Lakers rookie guard Lonzo, said the Lakers don't want to play for Walton anymore. Bryn Forbes buried his first shot and scored on a layup after jumping in the passing lane to steal the ball from Lonzo Ball .

That game must still knaw at Favre, especially since it turned out to be his last best shot at playing in his third Super Bowl (XXXI, XXXII).

The 10th-ranked scoring defense became reliable, but another spark emerged during the bye week while sitting at 2-2 in a competitive NFC South.

Fumbles by Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson, an astonishing 12-men-in-the-huddle penalty and a Favre interception in the closing seconds killed those dreams in a 31-28 overtime loss. Meanwhile, the Saints are one of the hottest teams in the NFL.

Theismann has no inside knowledge on who might serve as Keenum's backup.

Brees is used to being under pressure. Kamara rushed the ball seven times and Mark Ingram had six attempts for 17 yards. Don't be surprised if he makes a big play against an inexperienced Vikings passing game.

GM wants to deploy fully autonomous, manual control-free vehicles by 2019
It's based on the Chevrolet Bolt electric auto . ■Seat belts must be buckled and doors closed before the cars start to move. Still, for the Cruise AV, GM has to negotiate with states that explicitly require a licensed human driver behind the wheel.

Brees' latest shot at a second Super Bowl ring is one of New Orleans' most legitimate chances since their Super Bowl title in 2009. It is arguably the most anticipated game of the National Football League postseason to date: Two top-ten scoring offenses against two top-ten scoring defenses. The Vikings themselves have to study their cues and work on their technique for Sunday's 3:40 p.m. kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium. It was the ideal example of just how quickly things can go wrong in the NFL. "Forty reps in a practice, and he gets five and Bridgewater gets five". "You cherish these moments for sure".
