MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford briefly left the game against Dallas after taking a hard hit around the ribcage area while following through on a pass attempt late in the second quarter.

Shaun Hill took over for the next two plays, before the Vikings had to punt while trailing the NFL-leading Cowboys 7-3 on Thursday night, but Bradford returned to the huddle to start the third quarter.

Bradford was sandwiched on the play by defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence and defensive tackle Maliek Collins, who smacked his helmet into Bradford’s side. Bradford was down in pain for a bit before walking slowly off the field. He stayed on the sideline until halftime.

Bradford went 13 for 18 for 102 yards and no turnovers before getting hurt. With the Vikings’ offensive line in rough shape, he has endured plenty of big hits this season after arriving in an emergency trade with Philadelphia following the massive knee injury that felled original starter Teddy Bridgewater.
