Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford, who missed last week’s game and remains day-to-day, said the left knee injury he sustained was not because of contact in the season opener.

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver Corey Davis has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks because of a hamstring injury, the team announced.
Davis, who was the fifth overall pick of the 2017 draft, initially injured his hamstring on Aug. 3 and aggravated it during Tennessee’s 37-16 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
The Titans placed linebacker Aaron Wallace on the injured reserve list with a back injury.
To take his spot on the 53-man roster, the Titans promoted wide receiver Zach Pascal, who was signed to the practice squad earlier this month.

The 6-foot-2, 245-pound Wheeler spent the preseason with the Cardinals before being released on Sept. 8 and then re-signed on Sept. 11. The Cardinals originally signed Wheeler to a one-year contract on July 27.
