BBB: Bradford Bone Bruise
The good news is, Vikings QB Sam Bradford is believed to no structural damage to his Left Knee.The bad news is he is believed to have a bone bruise on that Left Knee. That is the same knee he had ACL repair. They’ll see how his knee responds to an injection, likely cortisone or something similar and go from there. Depending on the size and location of the bone bruise, it can take 2 to 4 weeks to return to play. An injection is unlikely to make much of a difference as bone bruises (much like rib injuries) simply need time to heal. Cook will likely benefit from this injury, Diggs and Theilen will likely suffer a little. I would avoid Bradford for the next 2 weeks at least, but monitor him beyond that because bone bruises can be fickle.
