Brad­ford inches closer to be­ing able to play

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - SPORTS SUNDAY -

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Min­nesota Vik­ings quar­ter­back Sam Brad­ford was listed as ques­tion­able to play in Mon­day’s up­com­ing game at Chicago.

Brad­ford, who has not played since the sea­son opener be­cause of trou­ble with his left knee, again took part in prac­tice on a lim­ited ba­sis Satur­day. Coach Mike Zim­mer de­clined to con­firm the de­ci­sion about Brad­ford’s sta­tus would wait un­til a few hours be­fore kickoff Mon­day. “We’ll see,” Zim­mer said. “I’m afraid to look into (the crys­tal ball),” Zim­mer quipped. “I see an ugly face look­ing back.”

Brad­ford was ruled out ahead of time the last two weeks and has been held out of three con­sec­u­tive games, so be­ing de­clared a 50-50 propo­si­tion to play against the Bears is clearly progress.
