Bradford reportedly took all of the first-team snaps in practice this week. He replaces Shaun Hill, who served as the Vikings' quarterback in their 25-16 win over the Tennessee Titans in the season opener.
Hill threw for 237 yards and did not turn the ball over, but Minnesota offered a 2017 first-round draft pick and a conditional 2018 fourth-round selection to get Bradford earlier this month after Teddy Bridgewater tore ligaments in his left knee on Aug. 30.
Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer did not formally make an announcement on his team's starting quarterback when he met with the media Friday. He only said that Bradford and Hill are both ready.
