Sam Bradford's injured left knee is getting better, but it's still an unknown if he'll be able to play Sunday when the Vikings host the Buccaneers at noon. 

During a media briefing today, Bradford said he plans to practice today but his ability to play won't be determined until he has more time to see how his knee responds to treatment. 

"I'd like to think they're good," said Bradford when asked about his chances of playing. 

Head coach Mike Zimmer said he won't name Bradford or Case Keenum the starter until Sunday, meaning it'll be a game-time decision. 

Details on how Bradford hurt his knee during Minnesota's Week 1 win over the Saints are unknown, but Bradford did confirm today that it happened on a non-contact play, according to A.J. Mansour
