Minnesota optimistic Sam Bradford will play against Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is tackled by Minnesota Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes during their NFL football game at Wembley Stadium London. Rhodes went to the same high school

Bradford's MRI reportedly "did not reveal any specific damage", but it's the same knee he had ACL surgeries on in 2013 and 2014.

Bradford is coming off perhaps the best game of his National Football League career against the Saints, and was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

With there being concern about the knee injury suffered by quarterback Sam Bradford, the Vikings on Saturday elevated quarterback Kyle Sloter from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

If Bradford's knee doesn't allow him to play on Sunday, then the Vikings will have to go with veteran backup Case Keenum.

League unveils new 'Statement' uniforms for next season
The Oklahoma City Thunder unveiled their newest uniform, a solid navy alternate to their revamped originals. The "Statement" jersey is inspired by each squad's decision to " make bold statements " with their designs.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Bradford had an MRI on his left knee Tuesday after experiencing "swelling, pain, discomfort" following the Vikings Monday night's win over the New Orleans Saints.

Durability has always been a concern with the Oklahoma product considering he played 10 games in 2011 and seven games in 2013. It's the same knee for which Bradford has undergone two surgeries to fix a torn ACL in 2013 and 2014. The offensive line actually played very well. However, it doesn't seem serious enough to keep him out of Sunday's game. If either of those deadlines passed, Bridgewater would be on the PUP for the rest of the season.

Last season, Bradford threw for 3,877 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions while completing a league-best 71.6 percent of his passes and recording a passer rating of 99.3.

But all of this is based on Bradford being able to stay on the field for the entire year.
