Vikings still won't name a starting QB; Rudolph impressed by Bradford


Vikings fans anxious to find out who will start at quarterback for the season opener will have to keep waiting because Mike Zimmer isn't telling.

The head coach said Wednesday at his press conference that he's not divulging the starter, meaning we might have to wait until 10:30 a.m. Sunday to find out whether it'll be Sam Bradford or Shaun Hill.

According to ESPN's Ben Goessling, Hill was taking snaps with the first team during the short portion of practice open to the media today.

Both quarterbacks spoke today and both said they're approaching practice as if they'll be the starter – a typical NFL cliche.

Tight end Kyle Rudolph did an interview with TMZ Sports and said Bradford is getting more comfortable with the offense every day.

"It's a steep learning curve when you come into a new offense and you have a new playbook, so his head was spinning a little early," Rudolph said. "Each and everyday, things have slowed down for him."

The Vikings and Titans kick off in Tennessee at 12 p.m. Sunday.
