Mike Zimmer believes all his quarterbacks will play this season

So who gets in first: Bradford or Teddy?

The Vikings are gearing up to play the Cleveland Browns in London on Sunday.

Following Friday's practice, a reporter asked head coach Mike Zimmer what's going to happen when his injured quarterbacks – Sam Bradford and in theory Teddy Bridgewater – are all healthy; is it going to be a problem?

"I think it's a good problem to have, said Zimmer. "And I do anticipate getting them all in there at some point in time."

Which means Bradford and Bridgewater will likely see time at quarterback this season, but the question is, who gets in there first?

With Bridgewater practicing over the last two weeks – and the fact he may have even taken first-team reps this week – it would indicate he probably has a leg up on Bradford.

But before Bridgewater appears in a game, he needs to be activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list, which could happen very soon.


– Wait, Did Teddy take first-team reps at practice?

Bradford started Week 1 and arguably played the game of his life, but he suffered a leg injury in the win and some believe it could even end his career.

Finally, there's Kyle Sloter who has been lost in the shuffle, even though he's technically the only active and healthy backup to Case Keenum.

Yet, it would seem he'd be the lame duck that's booted back to the practice squad if the team activates Bridgewater.

The Vikings already announced that Keenum will start in London but he's coming off his worst performance yet, despite Minnesota picking up another win last week. 

If his ineffective play continues, Zimmer may have to make a change.
