This is what Raymond James Stadium looks like 90 min before kickoff. Some minor flooding in some of the grass parking lots. Judging by how easy it was to get here, not expecting a lot of fans tonight.

The Vikings announced they've placed quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on injured reserve, after Bridgewater suffered a torn ACL and dislocated left knee during the team's practice on Tuesday. The Vikings brought back Brad Sorensen, whom they'd signed earlier this month while Bridgewater was dealing with a sore shoulder. The team had released Sorensen on Monday, but will likely use him in its final preseason game on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams, with Shaun Hill expected not to play.
