Default Sloter just got closer to playing

Sam Bradford was limited in practice with a knee injury

Quote:
As Vikings fans continue to bask in the afterglow of the best game of quarterback Sam Bradford‘s career, here’s a splash of cold water: Bradford was limited in practice on Wednesday with a knee injury.
The injury report doesn’t specify whether it’s a left or right knee injury. He torn the ACL in his left knee in 2013 and again in 2014.
Less than 48 hours removed from Monday night’s masterpiece, it’s hard at this point to reach any conclusions regarding whether Bradford will or won’t play when the Vikings travel to Pittsburgh on Sunday. If for some reason he can’t play, it will be the Case Keenum show.
Missing practice for the Vikings was linebacker Anthony Barr, who has a hamstring injury. Also limited in practice was linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, also with a hamstring injury.

Too many guys in his way. The Bradford injury would have to be serious and then they'd probably ride Keenum indefinitely. And if he is awful, Bridgewater is probably ready around midseason.

If the Vikings need to add a QB to the roster, it may or may not be Sloter. They may bring in a more experienced player.

It would have been ideal to sign Sloter to the practice squad, or as a 3rd QB if we weren't stuck with Lynch. He wasn't ready to be the backup yet, and he couldn't take up a roster spot. The other 31 teams didn't think he was ready, nor does he have enough potential to sacrifice one of their roster spots either. And good QBs are in demand as always. Sloter will be remembered as the 2017 preseason darling.

Its annoying when people say this with such authority. You don't know this. Especially when the "Sloter" "Brandstater" "Dysert" of 2015 was just dropping dimes all over the field for us on Monday night. And the dude he turned and handed off to was the "Xavier Oman" of 2013.

Just get over it already Falco.

This is starting to feel like Chrissy and her Manning obsessions. Just drop it man, it's done.

They have former Rams QB Keenum as the back up so no, Sloter won't be playing unless he also gets hurt and Bradford cannot play.

Barring injury (and even then i am sure some vet would be out there) Sargent Sloter won't see the field this year especially on a quality /playoff team.

Next year, different story. Decent shot as a backup.




















HOPEFULLY IN ORANGE AND BLUE AND A HORSE HEAD ON THE HELMET.

He's on the PUP list because Zimmer didn't think he was able to protect himself in the manner he saw fit.
The PUP stint is to allow him to further his mental approach. Bridgewater is physically fine. Similar to Jake Butt.

With that said, the interesting question is what are they going to do with Bridgewater for next season. He's a UFA because they did not pick up his 5th year option. They could retain him on a tag or sign him to an extension should they choose to.

The Vikings players love Teddy but they also like Sam so it will be an interesting debate.
If they choose to trade Bridgewater or choose to not re-sign him then that could open the door for Sloter to be the back up.

I think it was Stink who said from his contacts it doesn't sound like he'll ever play again. He's actually lucky he didn't lose his leg.
