EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Min­nesota Vik­ings quar­ter­back Sam Brad­ford is ex­pected to play at Pitts­burgh de­spite a knee in­jury that lim­ited him all week in prac­tice.

Coach Mike Zim­mer said Fri­day he an­tic­i­pates that Brad­ford will play Sun­day. Brad­ford was listed as ques­tion­able on the in­jury re­port.

Brad­ford was named the NFC Of­fen­sive Player of the Week for his per­for­mance Mon­day in the opener against New Or­leans. He showed no signs of trou­ble dur­ing the game.

ESPN re­ported that Brad­ford felt pain and swelling in his left knee that has twice been sur­gi­cally re­paired. The net­work says he had an MRI test Tues­day that re­vealed no spe­cific dam­age. Zim­mer de­clined to con­firm the MRI.
