The Minnesota Vikings are expected to be without quarterback Sam Bradford for at least two weeks after he aggravated a strained right pectoral muscle.
The team’s first-round pick has yet to be cleared by doctors and won’t be available to practice this week.
He has been placed on injured reserve.
The Vikings were hoping to use their bye week to evaluate Bradford’s injury, but coach Mike Zimmer said the quarterback will be ready to go this week and is in good spirits.
Bradford has thrown four touchdown passes and no interceptions this season.
