Vikings activate Sam Bradford off injured reserve

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford is back on the 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's National Football League division round playoff against the New Orleans Saints.

Bradford hasn't played in a game since then, and went on injured reserve November 8 after having his third operation on his left knee the day before.

The Vikings waived tight end Kyle Carter on Saturday to make room for Bradford, who last played at Chicago on October 9 and returned to practice last week after recovering from a left knee injury.

If Bradford dresses for Sunday's game, he could serve as the backup behind starter Case Keenum.

The US also declared sanctions against 14 entities and people, including Iran's head of judiciary Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani. United Nations inspectors have certified Iran's compliance with the deal nine times, most recently in November.

To clear a roster spot, the Vikings waived tight end Kyle Carter.

That game was arguably the best of Bradford's career, as he completed 84.4 percent of his passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions.

He made his return against the Chicago Bears week five, but was benched before half-time and has not played since.

1 seed, the Eagles will host the victor of the matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings, which will kickoff in Minnesota at 4:40 p.m. EST. Bradford dressing for the game would not necessarily mean he would play ahead of Bridgewater, and it would be a significant step if the Vikings were to put him on their 46-man active roster for the game at all.
