Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford's status for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers will be a game-time decision, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter

Meanwhile, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported similar news, but added that Bradford's ACL and ligaments are intact, which is a positive sign that the injury may not be long term.

Bradford has been limited in practice all week with a left knee injury and had an MRI done on Friday.

Because Case Keenum was the only other quarterback on the active roster, Minnesota added Kyle Sloter to their 53-man roster on Saturday.

The veteran Keenum would get the nod if Bradford is unable to suit up. Keenum has started 24 games since 2013, including nine last season with the Rams.

Rhodes and Barr

Schefter also added that the Vikings are optimistic that cornerback Xavier Rhodes and linebacker Anthony Barr will be able to play too. 

If Rhodes is out, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown could have a field day against Minnesota's secondary.

Kickoff between the Vikings and Steelers is set for noon from Pittsburgh.
