No structural damage in left knee, no setback for Sam Bradford

No structural damage in left knee, no setback for Sam Bradford

This boost the outlook of Stefon Diggs, but with Case Keenum under center for the Vikings in Week 3, his upside will be limited.

Minneapolis, MN- Quarterback Case Keenum was ineffective last Sunday while taking the place of an injured Sam Bradford.

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carries the ball during the first quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on September 24, 2017.

In rushing, Dalvin Cook led the way for 64 yards in 12 attempts while Jerick McKinnon posted 16 yards in three attempts. Mike Evans led receiving with 93 yards and a TD in seven catches while DeSean Jackson had 39 yards in one reception. Bradford did not play in the Vikings 26-9 loss to Pittsburgh last week, and told reporters that his status for the game against Tampa Bay will depend on how his knee responds during the week.

Keenum, meanwhile, went 25 for 33 in the third 300-yard game of his career.

Diggs finished with eight receptions for 173 yards. Adam Theilen caught five for 98 yards. The good news for Tampa Bay is that history is in their favor.

Keenum has beaten the Buccaneers in three straight seasons, the past two with the Rams.

Nobody was kneeling on the Vikings sideline, but many players also stood arm in arm, with owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf and general manager Rick Spielman joining them.

Tampa Bay will enter the game without two starters on defense: LB Kwon Alexander (hamstring) and DT Chris Baker (illness) did not practice this week.

The Buccaneers will be playing without three prominent names on the defensive side.

CB Trae Waynes notched his first interception of the season vs. Tampa Bay on Sunday.
