The Minnesota Vikings are dinged up heading into Packers week.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford's injured knee will keep him from playing against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Bradford aggravated his bone bruise injury in his left knee making his return to the lineup Monday night against the Chicago Bears.

With a career completion rate of 58.4 percent entering 2017, Keenum isn't an ideal option to lead Minnesota's air attack, but the Vikings at least know what to expect from him should Bradford be forced to miss extended time.

"I haven't had him running sprints", Zimmer said, "but he's been around".

The Vikings also ruled out starters Stefon Diggs (groin) at wide receiver and Nick Easton (calf) at left guard.

Keenum will get his fourth start of the season against the Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium. Keenum has played fairly well this season, with four touchdown passes and no interceptions. Starting safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) is listed as questionable after returning to practice Friday.

Easton, who departed Monday's game with a calf injury, will likely be replaced by Jeremiah Sirles, who started 10 games for the Vikings a year ago, though most were at right tackle.
