So we’re not doctors, but we’re guessing your hand isn’t supposed to look like Sam Bradford’s did after he was hit Sunday night.
Things appeared to be going well for the Minnesota Vikings’ new quarterback as he led his team down the field on a touchdown drive early in the second quarter against the Green Bay Packers, but he went straight to the locker room afterward with an apparent injury to his non-throwing hand.
But Bradford wasn’t in the locker room for long. He came back in time for the next series and went back under center for Minnesota.
It was Bradford’s first start with the Vikings, who acquired the quarterback from the Philadelphia Eagles in a trade just before the season. He went on to complete 22 of 31 passes for 286 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Vikings’ 17-14 win.
