Sam Bradford's knee 'better' but unclear when he'll return

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer believes that Sam Bradford's injured left knee is getting better. Zimmer is not sure when it will improve enough to allow the team's starting quarterback to return to the field.

Zimmer tried to be a little more forthcoming Monday about Bradford's health, a day after some ornery and curt answers only seemed to add more confusion to the situation. He said that he did not believe Bradford's injury would be long term, but said there was no timeline for his return.

"I anticipate that when he is ready to practice and he is ready to play, that he will play," Zimmer said. "Honestly, I don't have a crystal ball. I know you guys want to ask me about all these things, but I don't have a crystal ball. Wish I did. I'd call some games better."
