An MRI performed Tuesday showed no new damage to the injured left knee of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford, according to team athletic trainer Eric Sugarman.
Bradford is suffering from what Sugarman termed wear and tear on the knee, but his status remains day to day.
It was not immediately clear whether Bradford is a candidate to start Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Backup Case Keenum would start if Bradford couldn’t.
Monday Night Football gave us our first look at the Dalvin Cook-less Vikings backfield this season. Though Latavius Murray took a major lead in the carry department early, it didn’t take long for super-athlete Jerick McKinnon to steal the show. McKinnon played 47 snaps and led the team in carries (16), rushing yards (95), receptions (six) and receiving yards (51). McKinnon, who ripped off a 58-yard touchdown run, likely has the edge in this backfield moving forward and should be under RB2 consideration against Green Bay this week. Murray touched the ball on 14 of his 22 snaps but managed only 43 yards. He should be on benches.

Watkins’ massive ceiling makes him well worth a roster spot, but his lack of usage and the tough schedule make it hard to recommend plugging him into your lineup right now. The Rams’ play the red-hot Jaguars defense in Week 6.
Elite Kids Jason Kelce Jersey Roethlisberger does face a tough schedule during Weeks 14 to 16 (Baltimore, New England, Houston), which is the fantasy playoffs for many, but he certainly has a shot to provide QB1 value for a month or so leading up to that point. Keep streaming him.
Dickson has yet to score a touchdown this season, but he sits eighth in fantasy points at the position since Olsen has been out and is worth lineup consideration against the Eagles on Thursday.
