This is a concerning development for the Vikings, who saw Bradford pass for 346 yards and three touchdowns without an interception on 27-of-32 attempts in the Saints game.

Bradford has a left knee injury, reportedly requiring an MRI that was negative.

Bradford is coming off perhaps the best game of his National Football League career against the Saints, and was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

United Nations agencies: Global hunger rises for first time in a decade
The largest number live in Asia (520 million), followed by Africa (243 million), and Latin America and the Caribbean (42 million). The U.N. has said some 20 million people face possible starvation in parts of South Sudan, northeast Nigeria, Somalia and Yemen.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer expects quarterback Sam Bradford to start Sunday at Pittsburgh despite being limited by a knee injury all week.

If Bradford is sidelined for Sunday's game, backup Case Keenum will step in as the starter.

The Denver Broncos signed Sloter as a free agent back in May, but they released him on September 2.

Jeff Sessions can't withhold grant money from sanctuary cities, judge rules
At least seven cities and counties, as well as the State of California, have refused to follow the new federal rules. The judge said it was likely Attorney General Jeff Sessions had overstepped his authority with the order.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Bradford had an MRI on his left knee on Tuesday and that the Vikings starting quarterback has been dealing with "swelling, pain and discomfort" since Monday's win. Bradford suffered torn left ACL injuries in 2013 and 2014.

The fact that knee is bothering Bradford again has to concern the Vikings, as does the fact that the irritation comes after he did not take any hits on Monday that stood out. Both are listed as questionable to play against the Steelers. If either of those deadlines passed, Bridgewater would be on the PUP for the rest of the season.

But all of this is based on Bradford being able to stay on the field for the entire year.

Cult American actor Harry Dean Stanton dies aged 91
Those were his better known movie roles, but he also took parts in cult favorites such as Cockfighter and Farewell My Lovely . After " Paris, Texas ", Stanton hit the mainstream, with beloved roles in films like " Pretty in Pink " and " Repo Man ".

He's proving himself right in that regard, getting promoted to the active roster ahead of the Vikings' second game.
