With Bradford ailing, Vikings bring up QB Kyle Sloter

With Bradford ailing, Vikings bring up QB Kyle Sloter

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was inactive for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of a knee injury.

One point that Zimmer could deliver definitively: The Vikings will not be looking to bring in another quarterback to bolster the depth while Bradford works his way back. Kicker Kia Forbath also missed his sixth extra in two seasons as a Viking after the team's lone TD in the second half.

"I knew Chickillo was going to come in and give us everything he had", Shazier said.

Maybe, but not yet.

Bell, coming off groin surgery and skipping all offseason work, isn't anxious about the lack of big plays through two games.

The Vikings announced a few days ago that Bradford's start would be a game time decision after he suffered a left knee injury earlier in the week.

"You see leaps and bounds (of improvement)", defensive end Cam Heyward said. We can do better.

Watt was not almost as dominant in his second game, recording two tackles and a defensed pass before leaving the game with a strained groin.

"I'm not going to talk about Bradford's knee; I'm just not going to talk about it", he huffed. "And at times, we were late on a snap one time, but really, for the most part, we got on the right guys". Veteran Tyson Alualu, signed as a free agent in the offseason, has been a solid fill-in for Tuitt with eight tackles in two games. "Don't want to be an offensive team or a defense team".

ENCORE, ENCORE: T.J. Watt spent his first Sunday in the NFL putting on the kind of performance typically reserved for older brother J.J. The youngest of the three Watt brothers in the league became the third player in NFL history to have two sacks and an interception in his first professional game. "Ultimately it shows how precious taking care of the football is", said Glennon, who had three turnovers.

"We made some big plays", Roethlisberger said. His numbers were 20 of 37 for 167 yards and a 65.9 quarterback rating. He finished with only 87 yards rushing and four yards receiving.

Taywan Taylor, WR, Titans (WKU):One catch for 42 yards and two carries for 16 yards. Four yards receiving is nearly embarrassing for someone who wants to be paid like a number two receiver and an all-pro running back.

In Pittsburgh's season-opening win over Cleveland, Chickillo started in place of Bud Dupree.

Bilal Powell, RB, Jets (Louisville):Six carries for 13 yards in loss to Raiders. Of those, Sherels only got one opportunity to return, netting 12 yards. Brett Favre had a couple of turnovers returned for touchdowns, and the Vikings lost.

Zimmer's gruff demeanor after Sunday's game was replaced Monday by lighthearted jokes as he and the team returned to Winter Park to pick up the pieces from their first loss of the young season.
