Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) returned to practice on Thursday. He admitted beforehand, though, that his Week 7 status remains uncertain. “It’s kind of up in the air right now," he said. “Each day I’m going to do more and more. I feel good. (My) body feels fine. It’s not up to me. It’s bigger than me." We'll see how Diggs progresses over the next few days. Vikings-Ravens kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) remained sidelined on Wednesday. He's yet to practice since injuring that groin 9 days ago. Fantasy owners can't plan on having Diggs for Week 7. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will be activated from the PUP list and is expected to practice on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The team has another 3 weeks to decide whether to place Bridgewater on the active roster. It's looking more and more likely that we'll see him on the field this season.

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has been cleared to practice, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Minnesota will need to remove him from the PUP list if he's going to join the team on the practice field this week. Bridgewater figures to need at least a few weeks before he's ready for game action. Week 10 -- after the Vikings' bye -- is probably the earliest we'd see him.

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr came away from Sunday's win over the Packers with a concussion. He'll now need to pass through the league protocol before returning to action.

Vikings S Andrew Sendejo is inactive for today's game against the Packers because of a groin injury. Jayron Kearse and Anthony Harris sit behind the starters on the Minnesota depth chart. Kearse is the SS replacement among them, but it's not clear whether he'll take all of Sendejo's snaps.

There's "belief" that Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will play this season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Bridgewater has been throwing and doing football activities in rehab and is scheduled for a checkup on Monday. If that goes well, he could return to practice this coming week. He's eligible to play as early as next weekend, although we'd bet against that happening. But with QB Sam Bradford continuing to struggle with his own knee issues, it's possible that Bridgewater beats him back to the field. He's worth adding in deeper 2-QB leagues.

Vikings S Andrew Sendejo is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. He missed Wednesday and Thursday workouts with a groin injury and returned to only a limited workout Friday. Sendejo has also been dealing with a shoulder issue. The matchup isn't terrific, but Sendejo did rack up 11+ tackles in 2 of his past 4 meetings with the Packers. We'll see about his status Sunday.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He didn't practice all week and isn't a lock to be back for next week's game against the Ravens. Minnesota's bye is in Week 9. Diggs' absence on Sunday should mean a few extra targets for WR Adam Thielen and TE Kyle Rudolph. Laquon Treadwell and Michael Floyd will handle #2 and #3 WR duties but can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. Case Keenum will be under center vs. Green Bay. He's a mid-range QB2 in the Week 6 Rankings.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He expects to play vs. Green Bay this weekend, but fantasy owners need to be making backup plans at this point. We'll update Diggs' status again tomorrow.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) did not practice on Wednesday. He played sparingly and was ineffective after injuring his groin in Monday night's game in Chicago. Diggs told reporters Wednesday that he plans to play vs. Green Bay this weekend -- but that doesn't mean a whole lot. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman wouldn't speculate on Tuesday how long QB Sam Bradford will be out after aggravating his knee issue in Monday night's game against the Bears, according to insider Chris Tomasson. The takeaway here is that it sounds like Bradford will miss more time. Sugarman did say that Bradford had an MRI that showed no new injury. But he missed 3 weeks the 1st time around and could certainly be looking at another extended absence here. Expect QB Case Keenum to start against the Packers this Sunday.

The Vikings pulled QB Sam Bradford near the end of the 1st half of Monday night's game in Chicago. He didn't look anything like the guy we saw in Week 1 -- bothered physically, mentally or both by that troublesome knee. Bradford finished 5 of 11 for 36 yards. QB Case Keenum figures to play the rest of the game. We'll see what Minnesota does in Week 6 vs. Green Bay.

Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is officially active for tonight's game against the Bears. It'll be his 1st action since Week 1, when he torched the Saints for 346 yards and 3 TDs. Bradford is a risk/reward fantasy play tonight.

The Vikings plan to start QB Sam Bradford on Monday night against the Bears, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. The team had been working that way during the week, but HC Mike Zimmer confirmed the plan Sunday. Case Keenum had a tough outing in Pittsburgh Week 2 but otherwise hasn't seemed to limit the fantasy output for WRs Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen at all. TE Kyle Rudolph might see a target boost with Bradford back behind center.

NFL Network's Stacey Dales reports that Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) took the "majority" of 1st-team reps in practice this week. He was listed as a full participant in Saturday's workout. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says "signs point to" Bradford starting Monday night's game against the Bears. A final decision might not come until pregame warmups, and Bradford will be a risky fantasy bet if he plays. But his return would be excellent news for all of Minnesota's skill-position guys.

Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Bears. HC Mike Zimmer was non-committal on Bradford's status on Saturday. We'll see if we get an update tomorrow morning, but Bradford can't be in fantasy lineups at this point.

Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) has been a full-go at practice this week. He’ll be ready to serve in a change-of-pace role behind Latavius Murray against the Bears on Monday night. We’ll see exactly how much work that means. Consider McKinnon just a PPR flier for now.

Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) will practice again on Friday. "I feel much better," he told reporters. "The two weeks between practices, it's night and day." Bradford stopped short, though, of saying that he'd play against the Bears on Monday night. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.
