Sam Bradford will make his return Monday night for the Vikings

Bradford, who missed the last three games due to a left knee injury, is active and will start against the Bears. Quarterback Case Keenum will return to a backup role after leading the offense through a 1-2 record.

Bradford’s return comes at an opportune time for the Vikings as the offense will need to replace the production from running back Dalvin Cook, the budding rookie whose season last week ended due to a torn ACL. Veteran Latavius Murray will step into the lead role.

Also boosting the offense is receiver Michael Floyd, who will make his debut for the Vikings tonight after serving a four-game suspension.

Vikings inactives: OT Rashod Hill (knee), S Jayron Kearse, WR Stacy Coley, WR Rodney Adams, DE Tashawn Bower, G Danny Isidora and QB Kyle Sloter.

Bears inactives: OLB Willie Young, LB Nick Kwiatkoski, DB Marcus Cooper Sr., C Hroniss Grasu, DL John Jenkins, QB Mark Sanchez and RB Taquan Mizzell.
