Bradford completed 32 of 45 passes for 247 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Thursday's 17-15 loss to the Cowboys. He also gained 10 yards on two rushes and fumbled once but recovered.

EDGE Analysis

While the final stat line looks serviceable in both a real-world and fantasy football sense, it was notably helped by a two-minute drill that Bradford and the Vikings successfully ran to get within two points of the Cowboys with 25 seconds remaining. However, Bradford badly missed high on the subsequent two-point conversion attempt, and what looked like a missed call by the refs of a hit to his helmet as he let go of the ball sealed Minnesota's fate on the night. Despite his numbers being helped by the aforementioned final drive, the veteran quarterback's 5.49 YPA was actually his second-lowest figure in that category this season, and the Vikings will clearly need more from him down the stretch to keep their playoff hopes alive. He'll try to rebound in a Week 14 road tilt against the Jaguars.

Bradford will return to Thursday's game against the Cowboys after suffering a chest injury in the first half.

EDGE Analysis

Bradford took a shot to the ribs in the latter portion of the second quarter, which led to Shaun Hill finishing the half under center. However, the injury is not serious enough to keep him sidelined, and barring any setbacks, the 29-year-old should play the remainder of the game.

Bradford (undisclosed) will return for the start of the second half on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Bradford was taken off late in the second quarter after taking a helmet to the ribs. No update was given regarding the specifics of the injury but it doesn't appear enough to limit him going forward.

Bradford was forced to exit Thursday's game due to an undisclosed injury, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bradford took a big hit late in the second quarter and left with what appeared to be an upper body injury. The team hasn't updated his status and may not until after halftime, but the issue was serious enough for the team to put backup quarterback Shaun Hill in for the final few snaps of the half.

Bradford (ankle) wasn't on the Vikings' final injury report of the week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. As a result, Bradford will be under center for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Spotted with a slight limp in the locker room earlier this week, Bradford followed up back-to-back limited practices with a full showing Wednesday. While there's always the risk of aggravation once the pads come on, he's hoping to reconnect with Stefon Diggs, who endured a similar practice regimen but is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, "it would be a surprise" if Bradford, who is dealing with an ankle issue, didn't start Thursday night's game against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

That said, the report notes that the QB appeared to have "a slight hitch in his step" as he walked through the Vikings' locker room after Monday's practice, so his status is worth monitoring. Bradford was officially listed as a limited participant in the session.

Bradford was limited in Monday's practice with an ankle injury.

EDGE Analysis

No injury was reported for Bradford after Thursday's game, so this injury is likely minor. Still, make sure he's able to practice the next two days before Thursday's game against Dallas.

Bradford completed 31 of 37 passes for 224 yards during Thursday's loss to Detroit. He also threw a costly interception with just 1:15 left in the game.

EDGE Analysis

It is difficult to do less with 31 completions, as the Minnesota passing attack never pushed the ball downfield. Bradford's longest completion (41 yards) went to Jerick McKinnon on a short pass that the running back took for a significant gain after the catch. Bradford has now passed for just 393 yards and a single touchdown over his past two games, and with a wounded offensive line and limited playmakers surrounding him, it's unlikely Bradford turns it around in a tough matchup against the Cowboys in Week 13.

Bradford completed 20 of 28 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Arizona. He lost a fumble during the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Bradford got Minnesota on the board on its first possession with a beautiful 16-yard back-shoulder fade to Adam Thielen. The rest of the game was rather quiet for Bradford as he was held to a season low in yardage with Minnesota's offense kept on the sidelines with touchdowns from its defense and special teams. Bradford's been far from a star for Minnesota this season, but has been a very effective compliment to its stellar defense and has been adept at taking care of the ball. His next test will be against a Detroit defense that he threw for 273 yards and a score against in Week 9.
