Mike Zimmer expects Sam Bradford, Anthony Barr to play Sunday for Vikings

Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday this week due to a knee issue and it was enough of an issue that Bradford went for an MRI earlier this week.

Bradford had swelling, pain and discomfort in his twice-repaired left knee this week, per ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Obviously the results came back negative, which is a big positive at this point.

When asked if he was concerned about Bradford's health and his status for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh against the Steelers, Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer was terse in his response.

He continued by saying that the first part of the Bill of Rights and women's breasts "never let me down". Baldwin and the other guest on the segment, Keith Reed , were flabbergasted.

"I'm not going to talk about who has had MRIs or who hasn't had MRIs", Zimmer said.

For now, though, it appears that Bradford's availability for game action is not at risk. Keenum and wide receiver Adam Thielen were seen getting extra work in after practice Friday afternoon.

Barr took part in practice after missing the first two sessions of the week with a hamstring injury, and indications from the practice session were the Vikings expect him to be available Sunday. Barr, Bradford and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hip) are all listed on the Vikings injury report as questionable.
