Garrett Bradbury – C
In addition to not having Harrison Smith out on the field during their last two games against the Ravens and Chargers, the Vikings were without starting center Garrett Bradbury in both of those matchups as well after he was placed on the team’s Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Unlike Smith, however, Bradbury’s return to the active roster probably isn’t going to be as welcomed. Especially since his replacement, Mason Cole, performed better in the last two weeks than Bradbury has all season.
Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer said on Tuesday that the team has had conversations about Cole remaining the starter against the Packers this week. Beyond that though is anyone’s guess as to what the Vikings will do when it comes to picking which player should be their starting center for the remainder of the season.
Bradbury has been removed from Minnesota’s Reserve/COVID-19 list, so he is eligible to play on Sunday against Green Bay. Whether the Vikings decide to put him right back into the starting lineup this week remains to be seen.
