Zimmer "anticipates" Bradford will start on MNF vs. Bears

  • Running back Le'Veon Bell #26 of the Pittsburgh Steelers dives with the football during an NFL football game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers

Meanwhile Trubisky, the second overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, will start his first career game for the Bears after taking over for Mike Glennon.

The Bears center had an impressive rookie season but has struggled so far this season.

Bradford, who suffered a noncontact injury to his left knee during a Week 1 win over New Orleans and last practiced on September 21, on Friday said the knee has "come a long ways" after he returned to practice Thursday. "It's his first start against a hell of a defense on Monday night - prime time - so if we give him time and let him make his reads, he can show the world what he can do". Will Trubisky's presence make a difference in Vikings vs Bears? He has gone 1-2 in those games, completing 61 percent of his passes and tossing three touchdowns without an interception.

On the other hand, though, if Chicago plays more of a zone coverage with the emphasis on Diggs then running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon will have to have big games.

Minnesota enters Monday with the third best rushing defense in the NFL. So the Bears will try to take pressure off Mitch Trubisky by running ball with Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen.

The Vikings sacked Lions quarterback Matt Stafford six times last week, with defensive end Danielle Hunter setting the tone early by beating Lions right tackle Rick Wagner twice for sacks.

Howard and Cohen rush for a combined 120 yards, with Howard scoring one touchdown. Trubisky adds to his touchdown throw with 270 yards passing. It's a hard assignment against a Vikings defense that ranks 12th in total defense and first in third-down efficiency - but 20th in passing yards per attempt.
