He’s baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

With the release of the inactive lists for tonight’s Monday Night Football contest, the Minnesota Vikings have revealed that quarterback Sam Bradford is active and will start this evening against the Chicago Bears.

Bradford has not played since the season opener at U.S. Bank Stadium against the New Orleans Saints. In that game, Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns, two of which went to Stefon Diggs. However, Bradford suffered a bone bruise that night (despite only getting hit two times), and has missed the Vikings’ last three games.

Case Keenum has been up-and-down in place of Bradford in three starts, but with an improved offensive line the Vikings obviously have enough confidence to throw Bradford out there at Soldier Field again this evening.

We’re a little more than an hour from kickoff at Soldier Field, ladies and gentlemen, and we’ll be covering all of the action for you right here.
