Vikings' Bradford, Diggs, Easton ruled out for Sunday's game

Vikings keep Bradford, 4 other starters out of practice

The Minnesota Vikings will be without Sam Bradford for another week and backup Case Keenum will not have the team's top receiver at his disposal.

Fantasy Impact This is surprising after Diggs said he'd be out there earlier this week, but apparently his groin injury is worse than initially thought. Starting safety Andrew Sendejo is questionable after returning to practice on Friday.

Bradford attempted to play through his left knee injury Monday night against the Chicago Bears but was eventually replaced by Keenum, who threw for 140 yards and a touchdown as the Vikings escaped Soldier Field with a victory.

The Vikings and Packers kickoff at noon on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Diggs, sixth in the National Football League with 395 receiving yards, is dealing with a groin injury he said wasn't as bad as the strain that held him out of one game in 2016.

Jeremiah Sirles will likely get the start at left guard Sunday in place of the injured Easton. He's missed three games in each of his first two seasons and it's important to note that he hasn't played well through injuries in the past. He had 10 a year ago, nine at tackle and one at left guard.
