Bradford in fold; Vikings not declaring starter for opener

BY foxsports • September 5, 2016

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Sam Bradford has begun his crash course in the Minnesota Vikings' offense.

Coach Mike Zimmer isn't ready to declare a starting quarterback for the season opener. He isn't ruling Bradford out, either.

Bradford went through his second practice with the team Monday, two days after the trade with Philadelphia. Zimmer said ''we'll see how it goes'' when asked if the plan to play Shaun Hill at Tennessee remained in place. Both Hill and Bradford will take turns with the first team this week.

The Vikings dealt two draft picks, including a first-rounder in 2017, for Bradford after Teddy Bridgewater sustained a massive injury to his left knee.
