Vikings activate Bradford from IR for playoff game

Aside from their success this season, the Minnesota Vikings' quarterback situation has been the most talked about topic of conversation of the year.

Earlier this week, Zimmer said he knows who his backup quarterback will be when the Vikings host the Saints in the divisional round but chose not to disclose his plan.

The Vikings activated Bradford off injured reserve on Saturday after a left knee injury sent him to the sideline earlier this season.

If the Minnesota Vikings top the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, they'll be one step closer to becoming the first team in National Football League history to host their own Super Bowl.

Minnesota waived tight end Kyle Carter to make room on the roster for Bradford. The last time they dressed three QBs for a game was on November 7, 2013, while Leslie Frazier was still the head coach for a game against the Washington Redskins.

With Bradford finally healthy, Teddy Bridgewater will fall to third on Minnesota's QB depth chart and will likely be inactive against New Orleans.

Bradford, who completed 27 of his 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' season-opening win over New Orleans, twisted his left knee in the game, and missed the team's next three games before making a truncated return on October 9 against the Bears.

However, a source close to the team has told The Viking Age that Bridgewater will actually be among the Vikings' inactives on Sunday.

With the announcement on Saturday, Bradford now joins Bridgewater, Keenum, and Kyle Sloter as the fourth quarterback on the team's active roster.

At least there's no argument about Keenum being Minnesota's starter anymore, right?
