Mike Zimmer doesn't sound sold on Case Keenum

As reports swirl Rick Spielman says there is no decision on Vikings QB saga

I think he'll stay healthy, but who knows? Zim wondered aloud whether Bradford would be the guy who plays 15 games or one.

At the National Football League combine on Thursday, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer spoke to reporters about what Treadwell needs to improve on in order to turn his career around.

And after a season in which Keenum stepped up to help lead Minnesota to a 13-3 regular season and appearance in the NFC Championship game, the Vikings understand the impact a backup can have. There's clearly no ideal answer for the Vikings in this complicated situation. He raved about Bradford's arm and his Week 1 performance against the Saints. He basically said it will never fully go away, though he indicated Bradford is now feeling great. Rudolph told KFAN that he underwent surgery recently on his right ankle, which he injured during a game at Carolina. "He is a competitor; he's got the heart of a Lion", Zimmer said Thursday. Chad Graff, a reporter for The Athletic, then posted the full transcript, showing Zimmer's response evaluating his options between Keenum and Bradford under center. "That's the monkey wrench in the whole thing". With Zimmer indicating that Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman has informed him Cook will be "good as new" upon returning to the field, the 22-year-old should slot back into the lead-back role uncontested, even though Latavious Murray performed admirably in his stead last season. "That's the big dilemma".

RUDOLPH HAS SURGERY: Tight end Kyle Rudolph underwent surgery to fix the injured right ankle that hampered him throughout the end of the 2017 season, he said during a KFAN appearance. Following a Pro Bowl season in 2015, he entered 2016 with a lot of optimism, but a career-threatening knee injury cost him the 2016 season and most of 2017. There has been some confusion about Bridgewater's status because of the possibility that the league and the Vikings could contend that his limited availability last season could result in his contract being rolled over into next season. Hoping to see that jump this year", Spielman said, via the Star Tribune."I know he does work extremely hard at it. Sometimes scout-team quarterbacks and the scout-team corner are kind of the same way; there's no fear if they throw an interception or get beat on a pass. It would be a surprise if the Vikings push their young running back during the offseason program, but this update seems to confirm he will be all systems go by the time training camp rolls around. You can make mistakes in practice by just doing whatever you want to do and not having that affect you. "Him not playing for two years and not being able to see him play in live situations, that's concerning a little bit", Zimmer said.
