Bradford went through drop-back throwing drills on Thursday during the initial portion of the workout that was open to reporters. He has been kept out of the past three games because of a sore left knee that stemmed from the season opener.

Coach Mike Zimmer said he doesn’t know yet whether Bradford or backup Case Keenum will start on Monday against the Bears, but the extra day before the game will give Bradford a better chance to be cleared for a return.

The Vikings (2-2) have lost two of their three games with Keenum.
