EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford has been listed as questionable to play in the upcoming game at Chicago.

Bradford, who has not played since the season opener because of trouble with his left knee, again took part in practice on a limited basis Saturday. Coach Mike Zimmer offered no more insight than the injury report. He even declined to confirm the decision about Bradford’s status would wait until a few hours before kickoff Monday.

“We’ll see,” Zimmer said.

One of the coach’s standard methods of deflecting questions from reporters about the status of injured players has been to say, “I don’t have a crystal ball.” Well, now he does. Zimmer said a Twin Cities area psychic, Ruth Lordan, recently sent him an actual crystal ball.

“I’m afraid to look into it sometimes,” Zimmer quipped. “I see an ugly face looking back.”

Bradford was ruled out ahead of time the last two weeks and has been held out of three straight games, so being declared a 50-50 proposition to play against the Bears is clearly progress.

Bradford said on Friday his knee was feeling “night and day” better than two weeks ago. Case Keenum played in his place, with the Vikings (2-2) losing two of three.

JAGUARS: Jacksonville ruled out starting center Brandon Linder for Sunday’s game at Pittsburgh.

The team said Linder (illness) and receiver Jaelen Strong (hamstring) did not make the trip.

Linder missed practice earlier this week and had been listed as questionable against the Steelers (3-1).

Tyler Shatley is expected to start in Linder’s place. To help fill the void, the Jaguars (2-2) elevated offensive lineman Chris Reed from the practice squad and released quarterback Ryan Nassib.

COLTS: The team unveiled a statue of Peyton Manning on a plaza outside Lucas Oil Stadium in a ceremony attended by hundreds of fans and featuring remarks from Hall of Famers coach Tony Dungy and executive Bill Polian, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The five-time NFL MVP concluded the event Saturday by proclaiming “I will always be a Colt” and throwing autographed footballs into the crowd.

The bronze likeness features Manning in his Colts uniform preparing to throw a pass.

RAIDERS: Quarterback Derek Carr was limited for a second consecutive practice Friday and Coach Jack Del Rio declined to say what, if any, role Carr will have this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens.

Carr broke a bone in his back late in the third quarter of Oakland’s 16-10 loss in Denver this past Sunday. He was initially diagnosed with back spasms but the injury was later revealed to be a transverse process fracture.
