Teddy Bridgewater cleared to practice

The Vikings acquired Bradford for a first-round pick and a conditional fourth-rounder when Teddy Bridgewater was injured during training camp in 2016 and he's been one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the National Football League in Minnesota despite a porous line and a lack of playmakers.

Bridgewater originally suffered the devastating injury during training camp in August 2016, dislocating his knee and tearing his ACL. He has been unable to practice ever since. According to Fox Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer, Bradford's bum knee could be a career ender.


A 32nd overall pick by the Vikings in 2014, Bridgewater started in 12 of 13 games that year, completing 259 of 402 passes for 2,919 yards and he had 14 touchdowns with 12 interceptions. He completed 65.3 percent of his passing attempts and posted a passer rating of 88.7 while leading the Vikings to 11 wins and an NFC North Division crown. He's had more impressive outings, but the victory makes everything look better and a winning record will remain a strong argument for Keenum's continued place in the lineup regardless of who else is available. Minnesota is looking to get back to the playoffs after winning eight games and missing out on the postseason previous year. Teddy Bridgewater (knee, PUP) is eligible to return this week and is expected to be ready to play perhaps as soon as Week 7 versus the Baltimore Ravens.
