Report: Teddy Bridgewater will have ‘no physical limitations’ in practice
Teddy Bridgewater is returning to practice this week with the Minnesota Vikings for the first time since he suffered a devastating knee injury well over a year ago, and it sounds like he has been given the full green light from doctors and trainers.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that the Vikings will limit Bridgewater’s reps to start, but the quarterback has “no physical limitations.”
Teddy Bridgewater will be on pitch count in practice, but my understanding is no physical limitations. Just need to see how real reps go.

Bridgewater has been participating in individual drills for several months now, so returning to practice is a huge step for the 24-year-old. While he will likely need several weeks of practice to get back to game speed, there’s a decent chance he could start again this season.
Case Keenum is set to start again for the Vikings this weekend, and the latest reports we have heard about Sam Bradford’s knee do not sound encouraging. If all goes well for Bridgewater in practice over the next two or three weeks, he could have his starting job back for the stretch run.
