Sam Bradford exits Vikings’ win over Bears with apparent knee injury

Former Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford exited the Minnesota Vikings’ Monday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears with an apparent left knee injury.

Bradford came out of the contest, a 20-17 Vikings victory, with 25 seconds to play in the first half, noticeably limping. He was 5-for-11 for 36 yards after missing the previous three games with the knee injury.

Case Keenum replaced Bradford, leading Minnesota to the victory.

Former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, who also dealt with knee issues during his NFL career, expressed concern for Bradford.

Bradford won the 2008 Heisman Trophy, setting Oklahoma single-season records with 50 touchdown passes and 4,720 passing yards. After the St. Louis Rams selected him with the first overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, Bradford has played all 16 games only twice in his first eight NFL seasons. He hasn’t done so since 2010.
