In addition to Bradford, who was listed as questionable on the injury report, the only other quarterback on the 53-man roster was veteran journeyman Case Keenum.

Bradford, fresh off an impressive performance in the Vikings' season-opening win over the New Orleans Saints, is listed as questionable for Sunday after being limited in practice all week because of a knee injury.

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense may be bad against the pass, but they are great against the run.

BIG-PLAY CAPABLE: The Vikings' season high for completions of at least 20 yards in a game last season was five.

Another aspect to Cook's usefulness is his sheer strength, which gives him the ability to help protect the quarterback or give him a short outlet if everyone downfield is covered well.

This #Sam Bradford injury update points to a serious issue with his mobility against a punishing defense from the Pittsburgh Steelers. They kind of got away with some things last week, so hopefully they will look sharper in coverage.

Pittsburgh has too many weapons on offense, and despite the Vikings defense being a top unit in the National Football League, the Steelers can match that. The Vikings have to play the protection game, use Cook to his full potential, and harden the defense if they are going to start 2-0.

Also for Sunday's game, the team is optimistic that cornerback?
