Sam Bradford, Stefon Diggs are out for Sunday

Getty Images

If the Vikings are going to beat the Packers on Sunday, they’ll have to do it without their three most important offensive players entering the season.

Running back Dalvin Cook already is on injured reserve with a torn ACL. Quarterback Sam Bradford also is out for the game, after re-injuring his knee on Monday night. And receiver Stefon Diggs, who told reporters earlier this week that he’ll play despite a groin injury, also is out.

The Vikings will instead rely on quarterback Case Keenum, receiver Adam Thielen, running back Jerick McKinnon, and tight end Kyle Rudolph. They also need others to step up, whether it be running back Latavius Murray, receiver Laquon Treadwell, or receiver Michael Floyd, an intriguing presence who missed the first four games due to a suspension.

Things get even more intriguing on Monday, when quarterback Teddy Bridgewater may return from the Physically Unable to Perform list after a devastating knee injury suffered during practice more than 13 months ago.

  1. That stinks I really wanted, at least Diggs to play, I think Keenum runs the offense better than Bradford, maybe thats just the illusion depending on the defenses he played, all though Sam had issues with the offense last year as well, and while Bradford may have had more upside than Keenum, the days of Bradford reaching that upside I feel are behind him.

    Go Pack

    This one is gift wrapped for the Packers.
    ___________

    No game is ever gift wrapped in the NFL, don’t forget about the Patriots potentially undefeated season, or even earlier this year, with the Steelers vs. the Bears.

  3. I don’t know why Sam Bradford doesn’t retire from football. It seems pretty obvious that he cannot stay healthy. Watching him on Monday night was like seeing the same movie over and over again. Its sad.

  4. To even things up a little- let’s see Rodgers, Nelson and Aaron Jones sit this out. 😉

    Would be quite amusing if the Vikings O puts a beating on the Packers “vaunted” D.

    No, it is just very poorly run and has been for a very long time. Luckily for us, guys like you keep telling the world just how wonderful they’re doing and you keep throwing money at them. They have absolutely zero incentive to change… and we thank you for that.

    Who is calling the Packers defense vaunted? Nobody. Lets see what the Packers O does against the Viking “vaunted” D.

  7. There you go Barney fans.
    You have your built in excuses all lined up.
    And then you can always sprinkle in a few of your never ending officiating complaints just for good measure.
    You gotta love the classics.

  8. Always have to take a rivalry game seriously regardless of injuries or won/loss record. Packers need to bring their hard hats and lunch pails to this one and take care of business.

  9. A lot of teams have injuries right now, but few teams have lost, literally, their best offensive weapons in the three of the last four years.

    People can mock us Vikings fans for having “built-in” excuses, and they can say, inexplicably, that our D is overrated, but few teams can come back from these sorts of injuries year-in, year-out.

    I predict that the Pack are going to win because Aaron Rodger is just amazing. However, to say that losing three of our starting offensive players (key players: starting QB, top RB, and top WR) is nothing more than trolling.

  10. Sorry to see such talent missing. That’s the problem with following the NFL – you seldom see matchups of teams at full strength.
    The only thing I’ll say bad about the Vikings is the troller with 15 different sign-on names on this site.

  11. No upside for the Pack here…I really wish all those guys were playing for Minny…..injury excuses already checked that box. Next up explaining how the officials accounted for 30 of the 36 points the pack scored…ya know if it wasn’t for that holding call in the 1st quarter this game woulda been closer

  12. That’s life in the NFL, I’m sure the Packers could use Morgan Burnett, Kevin King and a few others back in the starting line up. Diggs is a good player but I’m sure Treadwell is finally ready after all, his first round draft status must be based on something other than sitting on the bench.

  13. I agree the injuries are tough and I don’t like seeing it..but Keenum has one good game and the purples are out trolling how great their 2 QB’s are, blah blah blah… crickets when he comes back to earth….wildly over optimistic bunch…. j.I still just smh at the Bradford signing…..what a blunder adding insult to injury…..yet the purples still defend it…THATS why we poke the purple fans…

    Get over yourself already. This is typical Packer troll spew.

    The Cab Driver takes all the injuries on key Vikings players and twists into being the result of the organization being poorly ran.

    If Rodgers breaks his leg this weekend- would that be because the Packers are poorly ran? Hilarious.

  15. We’ll see what Michael Floyd and Mr. Treadwell are actually made of. Time to step up or step out. Lord knows Adams and Coley are still waiting for their chance if these two goons don’t step it up

  16. It is too bad Diggs and possibly Montgomery will be out. They were both taken in the same draft with Diggs being drafted 3 rounds later. It seemed like they are destined to be compared over their careers because of that even though Montgomery is already a bust at WR and moved to RB. I think they will still have that comparison even after Montgomery busts at RB this year and they try him at G next year.

    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    and yet Ty was still a better RB than anyone on the Vikes roster last year…I love how Viking fans cherry pick whatever stat makes them feel better about 50 years of ineptitude…..You win you zinged us on the Diggs pick…I’ll take almost constant post season appearances and several SB championships.

  18. The replacements are every bit as good as the starters, and it’s another home game. The Vikings chances are as good as they would be under any circumstance. I’ve seen these teams play each other for a long long time. There is no reason to expect a cakewalk for the Packers. Starters and replacements alike are all professionals. These injuries are normal by Packer standards. Suck it up.

  19. You know, it was just terrible luck that Jordy Nelson couldn’t play on Green Bay’s final possession in Dallas last week.
    It’s just not fair.
    Losing one of your best offensive weapons when you need a touchdown to win the ga………..Oh, wait a minute…..they scored one in spite of Nelson’s injury and went on to win the game.

    Just like they had to in the playoffs last year, beating both the Giants and Cowboys, after Nelson broke his ribs.
    I guess that’s what it’s like to have a team with decent depth.
    Next man up!

  20. Packers will be the ones exposed when they lose to a squad that doesn’t have it’s starting QB, RB WR and G. 27-17 Vikes who’s back up QB has a better QBR than Erin Rodgers. Can’t wait to hear the excuses when they lose to a team without their three best offensive players. Oh, wait, there won’t be excuses cause they won’t appear on the site like they always do after a loss(es).

    Okay, so let me make sure I have the excuses straight:

    1. Regardless of who gets hurt, it doesn’t matter to the Vikings because they just flip a coin to see who starts anyway.

    2. It’s a road game for those poor Packers. Why do the Vikings always get to play at home?

    3. Everyone is a professional so don’t be surprised if the Packers lose.

    4. Packers always have more injuries than any other team.

  22. I really hope your 2017 first round pick Sammy Sleeves is ready to go in November, so you can begin your gutsy march to 8-8.

    So let me get this straight. According to you and the rest of the astute Minnesota football fans, Rodgers not only throws passes for the Packers but catches his own passes as well? All that and he’s playing defense also?? He really is the MVP of the league!

  26. I’m glad Diggs is resting his injury rather than potentially re-aggravating it. We all know how that worked out last year–like he said he was never the same.

    Your Vikings are a train wreck not only because they’ve botched the QB situation repeatedly, for several years, but because they also can’t build an O-line even after spending more money than Jebus in FA… also over several years.

    They have a grand total of 2 (TWO!) serviceable receivers, after numerous failed draft picks and poor FA acquisitions STILL over several years. If they had more then 2 (TWO!) Diggs being out wouldn’t be so tough… but they don’t… because they’re cursed… with Rick Spielman.

    They’ve thrown gigantic money and draft picks at a running game, again over several years, that has gotten them a grand total of nothing. It MAY finally prove adequate with McKinnon, or may not… if it does, it just proves that everything else they did was useless.

    And let us not forget, they flat-out quit last year… after Zimmer’s screaming and goofy T-shirts and mutilated stuffed animal stunts.

    But you go ahead and keep on about injuries and curses and voodoo and mojos and whatever else. That’s just precious.

  28. People rip Treadwell but the fact is the Vikings haven’t really needed to throw it to him much this year because Diggs and Thielen have been so good. From what I’ve heard, there have been plenty of times that he’s been open but the ball goes to one of the big guys. Why not, there’s more trust there. Maybe this is Laquon’s big chance to make a splash. He couldn’t pick a worse secondary to do it against.

  29. But you go ahead and keep on about injuries and curses and voodoo and mojos and whatever else. That’s just precious.
    _________

    More precious than believing your football team is good because its fans are better people than other teams’ fans?

    More precious than believing random injuries are due to the franchise being poorly run, all the while complaining that your team has more injuries than anyone?

    I think there’s plenty of precious to go around.

  30. So…you botch a position when a player tears an ACL? hmmmm. Please choose which of these 3 are not serviceable…Diggs, Thielen, Flyod. (I would list more be for arguments sake let’s keep it to 3). Again a ACL tear is a management problem? (not that McKinnon is a problem to me)

    Oftenwrong strikes again!!! Does anyone remember when Chris Berman used to refer to the NFC Central as the Norris division?

    At least the Vikings do not have players quitting and walking out of the stadiums during games or being fat shammed to leave the team. The Packers botched their RB situation so badly they were forced to play a WR at RB (see how easy that was?)

    I don’t believe any such thing about one group of fans being better people than any other fans. There are plenty of meatheads to go around.

    I don’t believe your team is poorly run because of random injuries; I believe your team is poorly run for all the reasons I listed above, and maybe a couple more. The results speak for themselves. Results trump your fantasies. Facts override your delusions.

    I also don’t claim the Packers have “more injuries” than anyone else. Ever. Last year, even though the secondary was decimated, and Jebus knows you people cried nonstop about your O-line injuries, the Bears actually lost more starts to injury than any other team in the division… or the league as a whole.

    It’s pretty clear you love your little strawman arguments but let me give you some advice: Don’t try to put words in my mouth; you simply don’t have the vocabulary.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Floyd? Let’s see him do something first. So far, his greatness is like Mike Wallace’s greatness with the Vikings… only in your imagination. Speaking of Wallace, who you guys labeled a “bum” when he left, how’s he doing?

    Chris Berman referred to the Norse Division, as in Norsemen. Unfortunately, you don’t understand history and tried to make it about Hockey. Berman even cleared that little mystery up his very own self… not that the truth matters to you.

    Nobody quit and left the stadium; that has also been debunked. Randall was sent to the locker room by his coach and that’s where he stayed. Unlike Terence Newman running all over “hard nosed Zimmer” last year and calling his own plays… while taking a beating… from the Packers. But again, that’s just the truth of the matter and the truth doesn’t play well with your fantasy.

    The Packers had RB1 and RB2 injured and unfortunately, Lacy let himself get out of shape. Ty Montgomery, who had played RB in the past, asked for a shot at it, even though there were others on the roster. The coaches liked what they saw and Montgomery went out and averaged more YPC than your entire team. Ted Thompson then went and “wasted” three late-round draft picks to bolster the position, which had you purples hopping up and down, as usual. If Murray or McKinnon get a bruise, it’s off to FA once again for Spielman. That’s a management problem.

    But as always, I’m with you! I love the job Spielman is doing! May he get a 20 year extension tomorrow.

  34. It will interesting to see if the Viking defense up and quits on Zimmer like they did against the Packers in a blowout loss last year. And after running Boone out off the team for being overweight, we’ll have to see if his replacement is a stud or just another fatty.

  35. As wrong as ever on just about everything…

    “As part of his shtick, ESPN’s Chris Berman often refers to the National Football League’s NFC North division (previously the NFC Central division) as the Norris Division or “NFC Norris” since the two divisions included teams from three of the same cities: Chicago, Detroit, and Minneapolis–St. Paul. The Tampa Bay Area was also briefly represented in both divisions simultaneously, during the 1992–93 NHL season.”

  36. “ESPN sportscaster Chris Berman often refers to this division as the “NFC Norris,” because of its geographical similarity to the NHL’s old Norris Division, now called the Central Division.”
    —-

    i had to actually explain that to packer fans here. because, as we all know, they dont understand things when it’s not about the packers, brewers, bucks and badgers

  37. Berman himself cleared it up. It was Norse. But sure, you guys go ahead and tell HIM what HE said… because that is as perfectly purple as possible. Just keep yammering the same lies and delusions, louder and louder and louder. We’re used to it. It’s what you do.

  38. Crappage is making himself look more idiotic than normal.

    ________________________________________________________________________________________

    Because when Bradford does play and is fully healthy he has played at a very high level and looked really good playing really well, when he is healthy Bradford is not an elite QB but is in that tier right below that. If Bradford is protected, with a good run game and some receivers around him he is a dangerous good QB, its just the staying healthy part that is his biggest problem.

    ___________________________________________________________________________________

    Ya, sit Aaron Rodgers & his two top offensive playmakers for a month or so and let me know how many the games Packers win, which would be zero as they would go 0-4…. The Vikings not having their 3 best offensive players in Bradford, Cook and Diggs cripples their offense. The Packers not having a few a decent mid level starters in Burnett and King is no where near comparable to what MN is missing, I am sure MN would love to switch places with GB & be without say Harrison Smith and Trae Waynes who both by the way are far far far better players than the two scrubs GB won’t have this weekend. If the Vikings offense was fully 100% healthy they would easily win this game with an electric offense, top notch run game and much better defense than Green Bay’s, I still think the Vikings have a shot at winning this game if their defense can step up to an elite level, And No I’m not a Vikings fan.

    It is too bad Diggs and possibly Montgomery will be out. They were both taken in the same draft with Diggs being drafted 3 rounds later. It seemed like they are destined to be compared over their careers because of that even though Montgomery is already a bust at WR and moved to RB. I think they will still have that comparison even after Montgomery busts at RB this year and they try him at G next year.
    _______________________________________________________________________________________________-

    Exactly… I laughed out loud hilariously when I read Green Bay fans and their media trying to compare Ty Montgomery to Elite All-Pro dual threat RB/WR David Johnson !!! At 6″2/225pds with 4.48 40yd speed, freakish burst/acceleration, the best jump cut ability we’ve seen since Barry Sanders, extremely elusive runner with an uncanny ability to make guys miss ( Johnson had like 79 forced missed tackles last year ranking as the most elusive runner in the NFL Via PFF) with the ability to double as a truly elite NFL WR w/ elite hands, the ability to consistently beat double teams & run excellent extremely crisp WR routes David Johnson is on a whole nother level compared to a guy like Montgomery who isn’t anywhere near as good as Johnson is. Johnson is an elite All-Pro caliber RB/WR who is the best RB in the league while Montgomery is a good average player, above avg receiver below average runner, to hear Pack fans compare him to David Johnson is just laugh out loud insane. The Packers need to draft a true #1RB in this next draft and use Montgomery as a #2 option and 3rd down weapon.

  45. It must be extremely humiliating for Viking fans to see the Vikings getting so much less respect than the Packers nationally. They usually lash out in rage and anger when they’re so ashamed.

  46. Injuries happen to every team. The Packers have been way more injured than the Vikings thus far this year. They have not yet had their starting O-line all in the same game. Not once. They’ve played EIGHT different O-line combinations in five games, including 4 Guards and a Center vs Chicago. Some teams might quit over that, but not this one. RB1 was out last week, might be out this week, and several key defenders have already missed time as well.

    So what’s the difference? Depth. Actual depth. Not just semi-warm bodies on the back end of the roster, but guys that can actually step up and play a little bit when needed, coupled with a coaching staff that is able to shift on the fly. Last year, both of these teams were hit hard by injuries, specifically to one position group each. The Packers lost the entire CB group, the Vikings lost the entire O-line. The Packers went from 4-6 to the NFCCG, the Vikings went from 5-0 to rolled over and quit.

    The Vikings’ lack of usable depth is on Spielman. The rolled over and quit is on Zimmer. The constant stream of excuses is on the fans. May none of them ever change.

    And yet, Ty Montgomery’s 5.9 YPC led ALL NFL running backs last year (minimum 75 carries) while he helped his injury-depleted team make it to the NFCCG as Johnoson jump-cut his team all the way to 7-8-1 and a seat on the couch.

    It is always.nice to see fans from across the league come in here and laugh at Packer fans, that it is not just Viking fans.
    /////////////////////////////////////////

    One guy.

    One guy makes the bold statement, “no, I’m not a Viking fan.” So what? Maybe Viking fans aren’t the only ones that like to pick needless fights.

    one? there are several of us non viking fans that see the packer fans as what they are. and picking needless fights? this is a viking thread. i dont know why i call out packer fans. its too easy and they dont get it

    So…you botch a position when a player tears an ACL? hmmmm. Please choose which of these 3 are not serviceable…Diggs, Thielen, Flyod. (I would list more be for arguments sake let’s keep it to 3).
    ________________

    You call it arguments sake, I call it not willing to list Treadwell cuz that’s exactly the kind of thing h3 was referencing, that and trading a 1st round pick to rent a player for 17 years, she. I would be willing to argue whether it’s Keenum or Hill last year instead of Bradford the records don’t end up all that different.

    Cool story, bro. Now let’s look at the actual facts. This is a thread about these players’ availability for tomorrow’s game, between the Vikings and the Packers. It’s perfectly logical for fans of both teams to take part. Your trolling is what’s out of place.

    Oh, we get it alright. You’re not a Viking fan but you follow their threads just to hate on the Packers. That sounds like you enjoy picking fights to me. You fit in with Viking threads. Who’s your team of choice? Are you ashamed? Maybe you don’t have a favorite team. Maybe you just like to pick needless fights. You belong here.

    We get it.

    Speaking, again, of a player leaving during a game and speaking, again, of a player being fat-shamed are your personal pick-points and very much beating a dead horse. That’s what you do, because you don’t have anything else.

    Choosing your own truths doesn’t make it true.

    You completely ignored the point I was making to make that seem like it is on me when it is not, which is exactly the Packer fan arrogance that I often refer to in here and a big reason I do what I do.

    Also you completely stole/copied what packrh8tr says in here about Packer fans all the time. Try coming up with an original idea on your own with just coping what others say or repeating yourself word for word all the time.

    Berman said “Norse.” It’s really sad that many of you don’t know that. Not at all surprising, but still sad.
    ———–
    While we are all honored that you think a one time great (albeit annoying) sports announcer once thought of the NFC Central as being the division of just one its members, that is not quite accurate.

    Search “Berman Norris” to see. Care to share the search query you used to get your quote?

  58. I watched him say it on live television. Finding “Norris” on Google is like finding “untracked.” Some of the talking heads misunderstood “on track” and one of them tried to explain it away with wagon wheels being stuck in ruts and other people that were embarrassed at having used it wrongly jumped on board with the explanation. Doesn’t make it right.

    I can go all over the Internet and find “for all intensive purposes” but that doesn’t make it right. The correct term is “for all intents and purposes,” as used mostly in patent applications.

    There are many, many more such examples. The Internet, and texting, have destroyed spelling, grammar, and the English language as a whole. But you go ahead and keep using “Norris division.” Please. It speaks volumes.

  59. “all over the Internet” is wrong and Oftenwrong’s memory from 30, 35 years ago watching it on tv is correct. Sounds like the same logic he blah blah blahs on and on in here about football.

    At least the Vikings do not have players quitting and walking out of the stadiums during games or being fat shammed to leave the team.

    what else would you expect, the franchise is cursed.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    No, it is just very poorly run and has been for a very long time. Luckily for us, guys like you keep telling the world just how wonderful they’re doing and you keep throwing money at them. They have absolutely zero incentive to change… and we thank you for that.

    Regards,
    The Rest Of The NFCN

    _______________

    Get over yourself already. This is typical Packer troll spew.

    The Cab Driver takes all the injuries on key Vikings players and twists into being the result of the organization being poorly ran.

    If Rodgers breaks his leg this weekend- would that be because the Packers are poorly ran? Hilarious.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Your Vikings are a train wreck not only because they’ve botched the QB situation repeatedly, for several years, but because they also can’t build an O-line even after spending more money than Jebus in FA… also over several years.

    They have a grand total of 2 (TWO!) serviceable receivers, after numerous failed draft picks and poor FA acquisitions STILL over several years. If they had more then 2 (TWO!) Diggs being out wouldn’t be so tough… but they don’t… because they’re cursed… with Rick Spielman.

    They’ve thrown gigantic money and draft picks at a running game, again over several years, that has gotten them a grand total of nothing. It MAY finally prove adequate with McKinnon, or may not… if it does, it just proves that everything else they did was useless.

    And let us not forget, they flat-out quit last year… after Zimmer’s screaming and goofy T-shirts and mutilated stuffed animal stunts.

    But you go ahead and keep on about injuries and curses and voodoo and mojos and whatever else. That’s just precious.

    ————–

    And the Packers lose JUST Rodgers and the Packers are done for the season. Talking about precious.

  64. “And the Packers lose JUST Rodgers and the Packers are done for the season. Talking about precious.”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The Packers were without Rodgers for a full half of the 2013 season. Guess what happened. The Packers still won the division and your Vikings still finished dead last. Once again, and as usual, the actual facts are the exact opposite of your purple pipe dreams.

    ////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Been there, done that. A few years back Rodgers (and others) were injured and out and a 4th string free-agent walk-on led the Packers from a sixteen point halftime deficit to a tie with the Vikings. That game enabled the Packersvto win the division due to a tie-breaking position with the Bears……n effect……a victory. And this was against the mighty Vaunted Vikings defense.

    So, you don’t have to imagine what would happen if Rodgers went down. It’s been done.

  66. The frustrated and angry tone of the Packer-haters is making sense. The Packers have owned the division for more than a quarter century, first with Favre and now with Rodgers. No wonder they’re angry. No wonder we’re not. The haters have tried everything to get what we have, but they’ve been stuck eating crap sandwiches for twenty-five years.

    As far as I’m concerned, they can always eat more. Have a nice night. Enjoy your SuperBowl tomorrow. Bon Appetit.

  67. But you go ahead and keep using “Norris division.” Please. It speaks volumes

    Not my super bowl tomorrow. I’ll get my satisfaction in the playoffs. Will it be 4th and 26. Or 15-1. Or kap running wild 2x. Or Favre interception v giants. Or Larry fizs. Or Atlanta. Or the most epic: 2014 nfc choke-ionship. The only bad thing is we have to wait til Jan.

    No I understand that Viking fans like twisting things to in attempt to help validate “their argument” Someone pointed out that the GM has wasted picks, a guy that hasn’t been injured much has 6 catches and less 60 yards, they also botched the OL by not drafting players very high, and then trying pay FA. You’re right the Vikings have 2 pretty good WRs in Theilen and Diggs, but they have also wasted appear to have wasted their first round picks the last two seasons, and caught a tough break with the highest selection this year.

    The GM is average, and while Championships are one way to measure a GM, another way is answering if he left the team in better shape than he got it in. While that defense is young and very good, almost equally as bad, maybe its his lack to find a QB that can be a starter for more than 2 years at a time, but the Vikings should move on from him. Unless they like hanging around .500 with an occasional playoff appearance.

    Exactly… I laughed out loud hilariously when I read Green Bay fans and their media trying to compare Ty Montgomery to Elite All-Pro dual threat RB/WR David Johnson !!! At 6″2/225pds with 4.48 40yd speed, freakish burst/acceleration, the best jump cut ability we’ve seen since Barry Sanders, extremely elusive runner with an uncanny ability to make guys miss ( Johnson had like 79 forced missed tackles last year ranking as the most elusive runner in the NFL Via PFF) with the ability to double as a truly elite NFL WR w/ elite hands, the ability to consistently beat double teams & run excellent extremely crisp WR routes David Johnson is on a whole nother level compared to a guy like Montgomery who isn’t anywhere near as good as Johnson is. Johnson is an elite All-Pro caliber RB/WR who is the best RB in the league while Montgomery is a good average player, above avg receiver below average runner, to hear Pack fans compare him to David Johnson is just laugh out loud insane. The Packers need to draft a true #1RB in this next draft and use Montgomery as a #2 option and 3rd down weapon.

    You just keep laughing shooter, since PFF rated MONTGOMERY the most elusive back last year:
    “The Elusive Rating boils down to a runner’s success beyond the point of being helped out by his blockers, and nobody did it better than Montgomery last season. Montgomery had a rating of 116.4, which ranked first by a wide margin thanks largely to 24 missed tackles forced on 106 total touches. Only three backs forced a missed tackle more frequently than Montgomery’s one missed tackle per 4.42 touches rate.

    What’s more is that Montgomery led the entire league with a ridiculous 5.14 yards after contact per carry average.”

  71. The only percentage that drops my draw is the one I just heard on pregame… Tre Waynes allows 74% of the passes thrown his way to be completed. And that was against lower tier QB’s this season. Wow… Rodgers will torch him today.
