Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford had arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday. The surgery, which famed doctor Dr. James Andrews did in Alabama, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, “cleaned up Bradford’s knee.”

The operation was to help “relieve pain and discomfort” in his knee. The team is debating whether or not to put him on injured reserve.

The Vikings are in good hands at quarterback, as they presently have a division-leading 6-2 record. In addition, Case Keenum, who replaced Bradford once he went down with an injury, as the starter and Teddy Bridgewater, who missed all of last season, is now ready for the team.

Bradford, who is in the final-year of a two-year deal he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, before a Sept. 2016 trade to the Vikings, played in two games this season. In those games, he went 32 of 43 for 382 yards with one 300-yardage game and three touchdowns.

The 29-year-old Bradford has been hampered by injuries in his career. In the seventh game of the 2013 season, he suffered a torn ACL injury, then suffered another one prior to the 2014 season.

Prior to this season, he missed just three games over the past two seasons.
