It was reported here earlier today that Sam Bradford was visiting surgeon Dr. James Andrews for a new opinion on his knee.
Bradford not in building. Sources say he is visiting Dr. Andrews again, which means exploratory arthroscopic procedure is possible.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) November 7, 2017
Well he obviously either didn’t get good news or he was just sick and tired of not knowing what was going on with his knee, because Mr. Mortensen just released an update.
Vikings QB Sam Bradford did have his left knee scoped Tuesday by Dr. James Andrews, who "cleaned up" the knee in hopes of easing pain and discomfort, sources said. Team decision still pending on IR. Update coming on https://t.co/8BJFuCim1d— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) November 8, 2017
I don’t even know how many knee surgeries this makes for Bradford, but I think there’s at least a partial chance he’s climbing towards double digits. Anyway, Bradford has now undergone surgery on his knee and is out indefinitely. The Vikings still have to make a decision about how to clear a roster spot for Teddy Bridgewater and I have to imagine that the news of Bradford’s surgery makes the decision a little easier.
More updates to come when they are available, which should be before 3 p.m. Central tomorrow.
