The move ends Bradford's season, leaving Bridgewater and Case Keenum to duke it out for the starting job.
The team had a Wednesday deadline to decide Bridgewater's status for the rest of the 2017 season after he spent the first six weeks sidelined on the physically unable to perform list before being medically cleared to return to practice on October 18.
Bradford had surgery on his left knee Tuesday performed by Dr. James Andrews, who "cleaned up" the knee in hopes of easing pain and discomfort, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

Since then, Bradford has been inactive for three straight games and much unknown still remains when it comes to how severe the quarterback's knee injury actually is.
Bradford appeared in one other game in the Vikings' Week 5 win at Chicago, where he had to be removed with 25 seconds remaining in the first half because of pain. He turns 30 on November 8, and will become an unrestricted free agent after the season.
Following Bridgewater's injury a year ago, the Vikings traded for Sam Bradford, who opened this season with a 346-yards, three-touchdown opening win game against the New Orleans Saints - a 29-19 Vikings victory. From Week 8 on, all players cut go directly to waivers. He tore his ACL and suffered a dislocated knee in a gruesome practice injury before the 2016 season.
It's highly unlikely the Vikings will waive quarterback Kyle Sloter, a source said Monday, to create the roster spot for Bridgewater. Bridgewater has the highest completion percentage (64.9) of any quarterback in his first two seasons in National Football League history.
