Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford traveled with the team in advance of Sunday's road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, per the Star Tribune's Ben Goessling.

When asked if he was concerned about Bradford's health and his status for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh against the Steelers, Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer was terse in his response. He was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

There is concern surrounding Bradford, who underwent an MRI on his left knee during the week.

Except that Bradford experienced "swelling, pain and discomfort" during the week, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, who added that the team remained hopeful that Bradford would play but had concerns too. In last Monday's 29-19 win over New Orleans in the opener, he completed 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards with three touchdowns and had a career-high passer rating of 143.0. He also missed the entire 2014 campaign with a torn ACL.

A friend of Muñoz says the film industry veteran drove out to photograph areas for season 4 scouting when he was last seen alive. His resume includes Mel Gibson's Apocalypto and Specter , the latest James Bond film that begins in the Mexico city of Zocalo.


If Bradford is unable to play, that'd leave backup Case Keenum to hold down the starting duties. All that can really be said at this point is stay tuned, because this year's rollercoaster in Minnesota is just getting started.

The Vikings gave Sloter $20,000 per week to get him on the practice squad after the Broncos released him.

Sloter, an undrafted rookie from Northern Colorado, was signed September 4 to the practice squad after being waived two days earlier by Denver. Keenum started nine of 10 games last season for the Los Angeles Rams and threw for 2,201 yards, nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
