Vikings QB Sam Bradford expected to play vs. Bears

Vikings QB Sam Bradford expected to play vs. Bears”

The Vikings look to make the best out of a situation that leaves them without their star running back, Dalvin Cook.

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Trae Waynes (26) celebrates after intercepting a pass during the second half of an NFL football game against the Chicago Bears, Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017, in Minneapolis. Bradford has missed three straight games with knee issues on the same knee that he has had surgically repaired twice. The Vikings will need a big game from Bradford, who will also have Michael Floyd back from a four-game suspension. In Bradford's absence, Case Keenum has gone 1-2 with the Vikings as the quarterback. As Head Coach Mike Zimmer noted this week, the thing the team may lose the most with Cook is his big-play ability, but whether it's Latavius Murray, Jerick McKinnon or the newly signed Stevan Ridley, the team can not afford to have to bail on the running game early in games. He was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Running the ball isn't usually an issue for the Bears, and particularly against the Vikings. The Bears are riding a pair of exciting young rushers, as Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen lead one of the NFL's most effective ground games.

So how can they win the game and prove that there's still hope yet for this season?

Trubisky will start in place of Mike Glennon, who committed eight turnovers in his four starts.

The Bears, who have started the season 1-3, will have a new quarterback under center, and they'll have a chance to right the ship a bit after a disappointing performance against the Green Bay Packers almost two weeks ago.

Now with Trubisky under center, the Bears will lean on Howard and Cohen even more. Alshon Jeffery, a long-time thorn in the Vikings' side, thankfully moved on to Philadelphia, so that combined with some early season injures has left the team's group of wide receivers pretty thin.
