It took Sam Bradford, one of the most injury-prone quarterbacks since he entered the league back in 2010, less than a half to suffer his first injury as a member of the Vikings. Luckily for the Vikings, who gave up a first-round pick and a conditional fourth-rounder to acquire Bradford after losing Teddy Bridgewater for the season, their quarterback returned to the field after a brief visit to the locker room.
That won’t make Bradford’s left hand look any better.
That injury took place during the Vikings’ touchdown drive in the second quarter, when Packers linebacker Clay Matthews hit Bradford in the pocket. Bradford finished out the drive, throwing his first touchdown with the Vikings before exiting for the locker room.
Bradford reappeared quickly and backup quarterback Shaun Hill wasn’t pressed into action.
The injury didn’t appear to affect Bradford.
Bradford has played in just two 16-game seasons in his career. In less than a half with the Vikings, he’s already been sacked twice and hit six times.
